How heartbreaking! They are all beautiful quilts and so much work! Keep an eye on Craigslist, as well as Ebay.

I hate the this happened to you. I hope once the word spreads, you will get them back. Did you also put it on FaceBook if you have an account for your store. People would really share something like this.

Warm thoughts go out for you and your quilts were made quite lovely. I know it feels horrible when stolen from. I take care of my elderly Dad and caretaker's and family come in and out. All my favorite skirts, sweaters and other clothing has been stolen. Quilting pins and evening dresses as well and I don't even really know what else. Yes, it stinks and feels lousy but don't let this thief take your peace as well. With Love to you

I am so sad that this happened. How can someone use it or give it if it's stolen? No conscience, I guess. A craft/fabric store I once visited frequently tied jingle-type bells on all their displayed products. They also tied them to wire display holders. Cut down on the thievery. Just an idea, but how then, does one protect a shop that is unattended at night?

I'm in New Hampshire so I will keep watch on my local resale sites.

Did you have any camera's showing at the time for this sort of thing? I hope you did, if not I would have them installed. Or was the camera stolen that would show the culprit?

I would encourage everyone to take pictures of every quilt they make. That will give them some insurance. It would also help with finding them. I wish I had a photo of all the stolen quilts. I would watch the computer sites for them. They probably have someone paid to do this but I would do it for free.
