Whats New At Hoppin Bobbin....
 
While I have debated and stressed myself over how to handle this situation, I feel it needs to addressed.  When I came home from the Milltown Quilt Guild show, I was excited that I only had one Ripple and Reflections Quilt left to sell. This meant that I could take the sample home and finally put it on my bed.  However, now every time that I look at it, I will be stuck with the thought that someone picked up the last kit and walked out the door, without paying for it.  I am just simply dumfounded and heartbroken.  While we have experienced theft in the shop before, it has been minimal compared to an almost $300.00 quilt kit.  I hope that whoever took this kit really enjoys it, because they have completely ruined any possibility of me ever being able to enjoy mine.  Not only that, but any type of theft at this shop has an adverse affect on me being able to support this shop or myself.  Unfortunately, they were really sneaky and avoided our security cameras or they would be prosecuted.  If you are the person that stole this kit, enjoy, you apparently needed it more than I did. However, please do not ever come back to visit us, our smile is genuine, our care and customer service is exceptional and we love our customers, but thieves are not welcome. - Kelly
