    Stolen quilts and items in Kentucky

    Not sure if this has been mentioned yet? On Feb 29th Patsy Thompson's car was broken into and quilts, quilt tops, machines and many other quilting items were stolen. You can check http://www.patsythompsondesigns.com/.../archives/3505 for information and pictures. Maybe if everyone has their eyes open wide we can help find them and return them to her??

    I just posted over there that it might come in handy to know WHERE the quilts were stolen. Kentucky is miles and miles from one end to the other. And the quilts might have been taken to a town across state lines-----IF WE KNEW WHERE TO LOOK.

    Wouldn't it be karma if the thief's house or car was scattered around in the recent storms and someone finds the quilts in a field?

    I am not a violent person but that makes me want to smack them! Only other quilter's fully understand the pain of losing quilts that you've poured your time and effort into. I won't mention the financial aspect because although that hurts too, it's not as devastating as the work lost.

    That is a terrible shame. I hope if not her machine at least the quilt tops will be found and returned to her. That stuff makes me so angry. One reason I leave nothing of value in my truck, physical or emotional.

    Corbin is only about 15-20 miles from where 5 people were killed in KY when the storms passed through.

    So sorry to hear about this awful theft. I hope they are recovered soon. And God bless the people in the area who are going through recovery from these awful storms.

    Corbin is in south Kentucky, right on I-75. It's about an hour south of me.

    What a shame, thieves are very low people, easier for them to steal than work for something. They could have watched her load her car and then walk away. I would like to smack them also.

    Corbin is only about 5 minutes from where I live, and I would just about state for a fact that these things were stolen for drug money. There are a lot of flea markets around here and I will keep my eyes open for her quilts as I cruise yard sales and the flea markets. Makes me almost sick to my stomach that people are so low-life to steal something so beautiful and knowing that they do not apprecite it.

    What a shame, her quilts are to die for. I love her video on spray basting a quilt and those she did on machine quilting, she is such a very talented lady and so generous to have put up free videos to show the rest of us her techniques. It's really sad when someone steals something like quilts when they know the quilter has put so much time and effort and imagination into them.

    I get so upset when one's life is invaded like this. I have too much trust in people and then read something like this. I hope to read of the success in locating them.

    I doubt I'll see any of them up here, but I'll keep my eyes open. We are having a couple of quilt shows locally end of summer and the thief may be dumb enough to be there!!

    I hope you can find each and every thing that was stolen, along with the thief or thieves. I can't stand it when people steal, lie or cheat! I hope they get what they deserve!

    There are names for people like that!! I won't post it here but it's just terrible poor women work so hard and most of us have arthritis and hurt so much but keep going and going only for some jerk to take away dreams, someones smiles, turned into broken hearts. I pray she gets her things recovered!
