Fifty-five Greek Orthodox nuns - all called Maria - are on the run after racking up debts of £400,000.
The women had secretly run a knitwear company on the side for ten years.
Their convent supplied 25 shops and they blew money travelling to fashion shows across Europe, reports the Sun.
The nuns of St Kyrikos and Ioulite in Northern Greece hit money problems after spending huge sums on new machinery.
Their expensive knitting machines were put on a lorry and the sisters disappeared a few days later.
Greek Orthodox Church officials believe they may be hiding at a monastery in Volos, Central Greece.
