Hunt this bag down!!!

More on our getaway later.

For now, more importantly, can you help in the hunt for the lowdown, dirty, stinking theiving person who stole this bag today from Nicole Mallalieu's stand at the Australian Quilt Convention in Melbourne.

Apart from being a show-stopping piece from her new book it has a huge amount of sentimental value as the button used on the bag belonged to Nikki's late Grandmother.

People who create hand made items and run small businesses that service the craft industry work incredibly hard to make their living, and do it from a sense of love for creating, sharing and teaching which Nikki does so well.

To blatantly steal like this is shameful, and I only hope that this gorgeous bag brings whoever did it, nothing but bad karma.

If you see it in the street, stop them, or cry 'thief!' - it's one of a kind - they didn't buy it.

Feel free to repost this - or link to it - or link to Nikki's post and let's see if we can get this bag back.

Some people are plain awful :( I do hope that it turns up.

How disgusting! I don't get stealing and to think it is a potentially crafty person that stole it makes it even worse. Hope you find the bag.

Lori said...

I hope the person is ashamed. People are stinkers sometimes. I hope you get it back. Maybe someone will ditch it somewhere.

What a shame that there are dishonest people in our world and at a craft show at all places - truely boggles the mind.

Oh my! That is awful. I do so hope Nikki gets her bag back.
