I had thought this would be the eventual scenario all along - I could not bring myself to believe that they had been stolen, just misplaced. However, when the Mancusos announced they were starting the insurance process and suggesting we start combing EBay, Etsy and post our quilts to lost quilt websites, I began to worry and started getting the word around.
David Mancuso and his staff worked tirelessly to find this missing shipment and my thanks go out to them and all of the quilters around the country who shared my blog and Facebook posts to help get the word around. Thanks, too, to everyone who has sent comments and emails of gratitude that all has been found. We are a truly caring community
