Be On The Look-Out...

I am just disgusted and heart-sick when I hear about stuff like this.  Maybe you can help find these two stolen rugs:
 This is the e-mail I received with all the details:
 Dear Rug Hookers,
Last week I was teaching a workshop in Ohio for a small group in a local church.  Two rugs were stolen from the church sometime after class on Tuesday and before class began Wednesday morning.  The room was filled with wool, hooking equipment including frames and cutters, other rugs and a digital projector.  None of those items were touched.  Please forward this email on to your rug hooking guilds and groups.  If you are a frequent follower of Ebay, Craigslist or any other internet site that sells things I would appreciate it if you would be on the look out for the rugs.  I am offering a reward for information leading to the return of the rugs.

Rug #1 is my Crocodile Mola design.  It was featured in the November/December 2011 issue of Rug Hooking Magazine.  It was exhibited at the ATHA Biennial exhibit in Lancaster, PA in October 2011 and at the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild exhibit at the Shelburne Museum in November 2011.  The rug is 36 x 48. 

Rug #2 is my Pumpkins and Leaves design.  It was hooked by Linda Woodbury and has been exhibited at many local shows in New Jersey.  The rug is 28 x 40.

I have attached photos below.
If you have any info please contact me or Linda.

Thank you,

Let's all do our part to help recover these kidnapped rugs!  If you see them, get the details, etc., then contact me and I'll get in touch with Norma.
Thanks for your help!  Kris

That is disgusting. I hope whoever took them has a change of heart and returns them.

Just awful...hopefully they will come to realize the shame due them and willingly return these rugs to their owner. Praying for them to do the right thing.

I feel disgusted too. You would think that it was safe in a church. I hope that the girls can recover their stolen rugs. JB
