It is sad to report that the first day of the shop hop for the Quilted Crow began with the theft of a $100 quilt kit. This was not a drug addict who needed to sell the kit to get money for their next fix. It was not a destitute person who needed to sell the kit to get their next meal. This was a fellow quilter! It was person who can afford to purchase a shop hop passport and travel from shop to shop. It was someone who saw that the shop was busy and took the opportunity to slip the kit into their shop hop bag. What motivates a person to steal? This act was not out of need. Is it just a game to them? The worst part was that this quilter not only has no respect for the shop, but also has no respect for the veterans that serve this country, for it was a Quilts of Valor quilt kit.
Trusting fellow quitters just comes naturally, however, when things like this happen, I wonder if I should join the other small quilt shops and close my doors. It is devastating to experience this type of event.
