Please read this post from Sally Gould Wright about quilts going missing from Mancuso Quiltfest Oasis. Quilts for a total of eight shows were delivered and signed for at Mancuso. They were put on a pallet to be sent to Palm Springs convention Centre for a show opening on the 18th October 2015 but they never arrived!

Over 100 – yes 100+ – quilts are missing and a reward of $5,000 has been offered by Mancuso and while this is nowhere near their monetary value, it is in the emotional investment in each piece that the real value lies and this can never be compensated for.

The title of Sally’s post ‘Mourning My Lost Quilts’ says it all; I hope for her sake and all the other quilters they are found. Please share her post especially if you live in America
