Quilter's Quips and Tips: Nancy Rink's Stolen Quilts Good News Update
September 29, 2014

Posted in Quilters Quips/Tips  |   3 Comments  |   Submit a Comment

UPDATE: From Nancy's Facebook page:

Amazing news to report. A man in a van pulls up in front of my studio. He comes in and I ask "May I help you." "I have something that belongs to you," he replies. The client I've been chatting with exchanges quizzical looks with me. "It's out in my van," the man says. The client and I walk out to the man's van. He pulls open the door and tugs on something. My Amish With a Twistquilt appears. "This is yours isn't it?" the man asks. "Yes," I reply, my heart suddenly pounding like crazy. He hands me the quilt, then proceeds to pull four trash bags from his van that are stuffed full of my quilts. My friend Rickie and my husband who also just happened to have popped into the studio a few minutes earlier heard all the excitement, (I am sure I was squealing with delight at this miraculous turn of events) and grabbed up the trash bags and started going through them. There were most of my stolen quilts, neatly folded with all of my signs still pinned to them. The man said he was returning them for a friend who saw me on the news. A brief conversation ensued and then he left. So I am still pinching myself. Although a few quilts are still missing, the majority of them were there and are now safe and sound back home. Of course I reported all of this to the police detective handling my case. Currently, I am not sure where my case stands with the BPD as I have not heard back from them. Will keep you updated on any further events. So so HAPPY!!

--------------------------------------

Quilter, pattern designer, and dye artist, Nancy Rink, has had virtually all of her quilts stolen right out of her studio in Bakersfield, CA some time between 5:00 PM Friday 7/25 and 9:00 AM Monday 7/28. 

Nancy's quilts are her livelihood and as she says, "I have trunk shows booked at guilds and it makes it very difficult to give a trunk show without my quilts. " 

Nancy has posted images of the main quilts stolen here (there are probably more) just in case you see or hear of anything. Please call the BPD 661-327-7111 or 661-852-7850 if you see or hear anything suspicious.

Nancy is also offering a $1000 reward for whoever facilitates the return of her quilts.

Our hearts go out to Nancy and we hope for the quick return of her quilts.

Ever wanted to watch a quilt being quilted from start to finish?  Here's a timelapse version of Angela using her longarm to take a quilt from start to finish.  Wouldn't it be great if we could all finish a quilt in three minutes?

Star Members can watch more with Angela in Episode 1306: No-Pin Curves and Quilting "Modern" in which she demonstrates how she gives traditional quilting designs a modern twist, and determines strategies for quilting the negative spaces.

Win Libby's Quilted Wall Hanging -Piñatita I! Three Ways to Help Libby Lehman
September 26, 2014
Back to Top
Posted in Website Features  |   1 Comments  |   Submit a Comment

6877_libby_raffle_wall_hanging.jpg 

 

Method One - Win Libby's Wall Hanging and Help Libby Lehman!

100% of Proceeds Go Directly to the Libby Lehman Medical Fund.

Enter to Win & Contribute:

1. Click "Enter to Win" below to get the registration form. Print out the form, fill it out, include a donation, and mail everything to the TQS office: TQS/Libby Lehman PMB 139, 1141 Catalina Drive, Livermore, CA 94550

6877_button_enter_to_win.png

2. Send a check, money order, or cashier's check in US Dollars made payable to "Libby Lehman Medical Fund". Your contribution (no matter how large or small- no contribution necessary to enter, but you will still need to complete the contest entry form.) will enter you in the drawing for the chance to win Libby's quilt. Naturally, our goal is to make a sizable donation to the fund. The amount you wish to send is up to you. We encourage you to be generous - $25, $50, $100, $500 or more. 

To make it easier to contribute (very helpful to International viewers) a Paypal account has been added. The PayPal email account is: 

libby.medfund@gmail.com

Please fill out the contest entry for Libby's quilt and just say you paid through Paypal.  We want you to be in the running for the quilt.

3. All entries received on or before October 10, 2014 will be eligible.  The drawing will be Monday, October 13th. The winner will be contacted and must respond in one week (October 20, 2014) or another name will be drawn.  Once the winner has responded it will be announced on the site.

Thank you so much for participating in this important effort. 

Method Two - Raise Funds With YOUR Quilts

Do you have a quilt in your stash that you are willing to sell on Libby's behalf? If so, sell it or raffle it and send the money directly to the Medical Fund at the address below along with a picture of the quilt. This will mean so much to both Libby and her family.There is no immediate deadline for doing this.  The Lehman family will need assistance for a long time ahead.

Please make checks, money orders, and cashier's checks in US Dollars payable to "Libby Lehman Medical Fund" and send them directly to Libby's sister:

Cathy Arnold
2220 Stanmore

Houston, TX 77019

Method Three- Just GIVE!

Follow Libby's progress at www.caringbridge.org/visit/libbylehman and give whenever you can.

The following is from Libby's family: 

            "If you have been keeping up with Libby's recovery from a burst aneurysm and stroke on-line at CaringBridge.org/visit/libbylehman, you know that Libby is getting better every day despite some very significant setbacks. Her will to live and to recover to the highest level she can have just sky-rocketed in the past few weeks! She is now begging for as much therapy (physical, speech and occupational) as possible. This is great news!


The Libby Lehman Medical Fund supported by so many of you has been an incredible godsend, and has enabled TEAM LIBBY to provide Libby with the best medical care and therapy possible. Unfortunately the Fund will be depleted in a few weeks, and the vast majority of her medical/therapy expenses are not covered by insurance.


I am asking you to please remember Libby in your Holiday giving (or sooner!) by sending a check payable to The Libby Lehman Medical Fund to:


Libby Lehman
c/o Cathy Arnold (Libby's sister)
2220 Stanmore Dr.
Houston, Texas 77019
713-528-5177

The Quilting Community is the most generous and kind Family that we have ever witnessed. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!


Love,
TEAM LIBBY
