This page is a way in which the Quilting Community can show both Jamie and Rich our support as they work through this horror!
Give early, give often, give from your heart just as both of these awesome men give from theirs.
Blessings to all!
They did not have Business Interruption Coverage and therefore will not be reimbursed for lost revenue at Houston Festival.
How about this idea: let's everyone go to their website ( quiltersapothecary.com ) and purchase at least 1 item!
What a great way for all their supporters to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Thanks to everyone!!
Blessings to all,
No new word on Stolen Product nor the Majority(40 plus) of the Missing Quilts.
A Good Samaritan found a Garbage Bag with what she thought was Clothing in it but actually Turned out to be 5 of the over 50 quilts. She recognized a few from the TV News and contacted us. We'd already returned home But Fellow Vendors and Friends Offered to go retrieve them.
Thank you so much JoAnn Gemmill from Jo's Quilting Studio and Machine Dealership for Acting so Quickly for us to recover the pieces found which included the "Tree of Life" as wells as One of The "Fire Island Hosta" Quilts. the "Little Girl" and "Boy with Frog" were also in the bag.
God Willing More bags will be found with more quilts!!!!!!
Jamie and Rich
Dearest friends, as many have heard the trailer was found. Unfortunately none of the quilts were inside and most of our products are missing or destroyed. From the bottom of our hearts we thank the Houston PD and Harris County Sheriffs department for recovering our trailer. But most of all we are so grateful for the love and support our quilting family has shown us.
A great development! http://abc13.com/1588081/
Fantastic news that everything has been found!! I hope the money that has been donated will be put to good use now that you won't need to buy everything from the ground up. So glad the thief left it to be found! Small miracles.
Latest news in Houston is the trailer and quilts were found!
I just read a news report that the quilts (maybe not all) have been found! HOORAY!
Unfortunately, the news report was premature. The trailer was badly damaged, and the quilts were GONE. Again, NO quilts have been recovered.
We are so sorry for your loss. So much of your investment, in so many ways. I hope the villians are caught and crucified for their actions. nothing can bring back what you have lost. They have no idea what great loss they have caused you. Our prayers to you.
Just saw news report! Awesome that HPD saw that trailer was FULL and doubted anything was missing. Showed trailer and it was all ok. What a blessing!!!!!!!
So glad to know your got ALL back!! Great news!!
The trailer was found damaged, quilts are gone and most of their products are damaged or destroyed.
any news yet?
Rhonda, Thank you so much for setting this up. I know this will help.
Would it be possible to post photos of the license plate and trailer on this site to make it easier for Jamie and Rich's supporters to access the info?
I pray that you get yoyr stuff back. I am so sorry.
