You've probably heard, Jamie Wallen and Richard Richey had their entire trailer stolen upon their arrival in Houston for Festival 2016. Everything. Every item for teaching, every item for their booth, everything!
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!

Jamie and Rich have yet to finalize anything with their insurance company :-(
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!
Blessings,
Rhonda

Update copied and pasted from Jamie's Facebook page:

Bad News:
No new word on Stolen Product nor the Majority(40 plus) of the Missing Quilts.

GREAT News:
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!!!!!!

I'm trusting (but don't know) Jamie and Rich's insurance situation. I know a hefty amount of $$ that will equal and offset their lost Houston Quilt Festival revenue and expenses would be beneficial.

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.

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.

Unfortunately, the news report was premature. The trailer was badly damaged, and the quilts were GONE. Again, NO quilts have been recovered.

Good luck, Jamie. Your cd's on the A1 have been a lifesaver for me. I have also taken your classes. All the best- wish I could send more.
