As many of you have likely already heard, Tula Pink misplaced, or lost, or had stolen, a sketchbook at Sisters, Oregon, approximately three weeks ago (second weekend of July). Unfortunately the book has not yet been found, despite Tula’s generous offer of one yard of Owls in each colorway from Full Moon Forest and no questions asked policy.
Obviously Tula is upset, as the book is very dear to her. It is white, 6 x 8 inches, with the above two stickers on it. She describes it as being very “obviously” hers, which to those not overly familiar with her style, probably means that all the sketches look half completed. If you don’t know her style, please take a quick peak at her website.
A group of friends and I were having a conversation about this on Facebook earlier today, when Kat joined in to tell us that the book was still missing, and she was upping the reward, and I promised her I’d share the news with all of you. Kat’s a darling: I shop at her site from time to time, and she’s always lovely and personally responds to my emails, even when they’re ridiculous. I’m not sure whether she’s discussed with Tula, but here’s the screenshot for anyone who doesn’t believe me:
I know, it’s tiny, but to save your eyes, it says the reward is now a complete bundle of Full Moon Forest (and if you’re not in to Tula’s fabric, you’re free to donate it here) signed by Tula if desired. Still no questions asked. It’s a very generous offer, plus, it comes with all the goodness of knowing that you’ve helped an artist maintain her intellectual property rights.
Please forward this to anyone you know who was at Sisters (including partners, children, friends, etc. who got dragged along) or who was working there. Kat’s hoping it’s been picked up by someone who doesn’t know what it is, and I can see how it would be very attractive to a child.
If you have any information, please contact Kat or Tula via their websites, or DM either of them on Instagram. I know how incredibly diverse the quilt world is, so fingers crossed that we can get this book back home.
I feel that I should point out that I have no particular affiliation with either Tula or Kat and am receiving nothing material in return for writing this post.
Many thanks to all of you who read this, and to those who reposted.
Update: As of Wednesday, August 5th, the book has been located and returned to its owner.
