On the whole, miniaturists are the among the most caring, sharing and honest people I know. So it's always devastating when we hear of a "rotten apple".
At the Guild Show in New York on Saturday, a $700. petit point picture done on 84 count silk gauze was stolen from the table of Teresa Layman, IGMA Artisan in needlework. The picture is of 5 little elves in a row in a red frame. It's approximately 1" x 2.5". You can see a picture of it on Connie Sauve's shutterfly site.
Wouldn't it be great if our efforts to get the word out resulted in the picture being returned to Teresa! Long shot but certainly worth a try.
