When Daphne Grieg brought her quilts into the U.S. for Quilt Market in Minneapolis, a U.S. custom agent was afraid she would sell them, so she was forced to write "Sample" on her quilts with a marker the agent required her to use, thus defacing her quilts!!
I am absolutely appalled!
You can read about it on her blog post here: http://daphnegreig.blogspot.com/2010/05/quilt-market-report.html
I hope there is some way for her to file a claim against our government.
Sorry, no pictures with this post; but you can see her defaced quilts in her post.
I am beyond saddened that a bureaucrat in our government was allowed to do this!
