Missing Quilts Alert

Wouldn’t you just be sick?! As this happened in Utah, not too far from where I live, I felt compelled to share.  Pass it along if you can.  The quiltmakers deserve to have their quilts back.

Dear Readers,As many of you know every year we look forward to displaying our authors quilts in our booth at Quilt Market. At Salt Lake City’s Spring Market the booth looked fantastic with so many stunning quilts. We know how important our authors quilts are—the expertise, time, and love that goes into each and every stitch, and for that reason, we take great responsibility for them while they’re in our care. So it is with a heavy heart that we regret to inform you that at the close of Salt Lake City’s Spring Quilt Market, four quilts went missing. The quilts that are unaccounted for are 3 cover quilts and a table runner. They include:
Allie Aller's cover quilt Crazy in the Garden from the book Allie Aller's Crazy Quilting   Joyce Becker's cover quilt Dryer Lint Etc. from the book Quick Little Landscape Quilts
Allie Aller’s cover quilt, Crazy in the Garden, from Allie Aller’s Crazy Quilting (46″ x 46″)   Joyce Becker’s cover quilt, Dryer Lint, Etc., from Quick Little Landscape Quilts (18″ x 18″)

When the crate came back from Quilt Market and was unpacked, it became apparent that these quilts were missing. We went on high alert. We searched high and low, going through every box, drape, tube, you name it we checked it (twice) and to our deep regret the quilts were no where to be found.Our entire company is mortified by this situation. We have racked our brains and tried to figure out what could have happened to these quilts, to no avail. We are reaching out to you, our readers, for help. We wanted to make you aware of the situation so that you too could keep your eyes and ears open in the hopes of finding these missing works of art. We are offering a reward of $4,000.00—no questions asked—for the return of the quilts. If one quilt is returned, the reward will be based upon the appraised value of the quilt. Information or inquiries can be sent to ctinfo@ctpub.com.
