Wonderful News!

Valerie Hearder's quilts were discovered today by 23 year old Billy Jordan on a path in St. John's, Newfoundland! Billy found 2 garbage bags laying on the path, and when he opened them he saw what looked like "expensive" quilts. So he called the local NTV television station to report his find. The NTV journalist phoned Val and arrangements have been made to return the quilts.

Here is Val's link.

Val has received huge support from the people of Newfoundland, as well as well-wishers from all over the world. The quilting community felt the theft of her work as a personal loss. Valerie is an outstanding artist, author, teacher, mentor and humanitarian.

Billy Jordan, you're a hero.
