Oh gosh, I am always heartbroken every time I hear about quilts being stolen. Oh, don't get me wrong - LOTS of things in this world are heartbreaking - starving children, abused animals, and so forth. I'm not immune to such feelings too. However, this blog is about quilts, so I will refrain from straying that far off topic.
Anyway... Nancy Rink is an internationally known quilt lecturer and teacher from here in California. Recently her studio was broken into and a lot of quilts were stolen. I won't go into details, or show pictures of the quilts here on my blog. HOWEVER - you can read all about it HERE.
That link tells all about what happened and shows pictures of the missing quilts. Please watch Etsy, Ebay and the like and keep your eyes open for these missing gems. If you see them, report them immediately.
I cannot even begin to closely imagine Nancy's sense of loss and violation over this theft. If I were her, I'd be more than hurt, I'd be angry too, and I'm sure she is, and has every right to be. My best wishes are with her that the rogue(s) are caught and prosecuted and that she gets all her quilts back safely.
Thanks for listening.
