“The show was the AQS Quilt show in Des Moines Iowa, the theft happened sometime between 8PM and 9:30PM, as we were loading after the show. The case is silver, wheeled, with locks on it, about the size of a suitcase. I do have to say the security at the event center was very good! I really have no clue as to how this happened, they even have video camera’s in the loading dock area, but unfortunetly there was nothing to help me. The angles were wrong or something. I have been working closely with the police department there. And although I have to call my customers, explain the situation, and re-vamp some orders, this is actually making for better customer relations.” The above is from Jenny Pat in an update post on PCC. So if you live in the area of the show, please please keep your eyes peeled. Thank you very much!
Jenny Paterson from “Quilted in Clay” posted this to the PCC delphi message board and asked that we pass it on. “2 weeks ago while packing up after a show, my case with ALL my finished “Quilted in Clay” beads was stolen out of my trailer. Along with all my findings, crystals and beads I use as accents to make necklaces. I am estimating that I had upwards of 4500 clay beads in various sizes inside that case! I make beads in in 4 different sizes and shapes, in EACH of the 33 designs I currently have listed on my web site. Plus a number that I don’t have on the website. These shapes are 3/4″ mobius beads, 5/8″ square, 1/2″ square and 3/8″ square. All finished and drilled. It was suggested to me to keep an eye on eBay and Etsy for these. Which I plan on doing, but these are huge shops and I can’t monitor them alone, so I am asking for help. If you all would not mind taking a look at the current designs on my website: http://www.quiltedinclay.com/products/jewelry/quilted_jewelry1.htm And if you happen to see something that might be my beads, please let me know. I am devastated! We are talking hours and hours of work just GONE! Some of these designs, I don’t have any cane left, so I can’t even make any more beads, unless I remake the cane. I am having to call customers and tell them I can’t sell them the items they ordered, and ask them to choose…
