2019 Review of the Year


Welcome to our review of 2019! This was the 11th year for LoveQuiltsUK and it has, as ever, been another busy one!

Here are some statistics on what we have achieved in 2019:

Total squares received in 2019: 2519 squares

Total quilts delivered in 2019: 201 quilts (2 of these were emergency quilts and 37 were backfilled quilts)

This brings our overall total to 1340 quilts since 2008. 2019 was another record year, with 201 quilts against last year's total of 190 :)

A massive THANK YOU to every one of you who have sent in your lovely squares, quilted them together into fab quilts, or fundraised for us this year!.

We thank you for your generosity in donating your time, materials and kindness :) We never take your time and effort for granted and we are so thankful for your continuing support so that we can keep donating quilts to children to help them through difficult times. The feedback we get from parents is always brilliant, with some children going to bed happily for the first time in years and others using the quilts for comfort in hospitals, and also as an ice-breaker with doctors and nurses. We are grateful for each and every person who has helped us!



We have a few people that we would like to mention specifically for their efforts:

Kat
Kat has dealt with a massive number of squares this year, despite still being in a full-time job with very long hours, well done Kat for keeping everything in order!

Gaynor
Gaynor has continued her efforts in sourcing fabric, doing the administration and maintaining the website. Well done, Gaynor.

Mrs T
Mrs T (Gaynor's Mum) has washed a lot of the fabric and duvet covers used for LQUK once again this year, before sending out to quilters.

Cards
Thank you to Sandra who has organised the cards we send out with the quilts via our Facebook group, and chased them up so that they all come in on time!

Pattern creators
Thank you so much for those who created patterns for our Pattern listing this year. It has really made it a lot easier to create quilts for themes such as Disney and Harry Potter with legal charts!

Emergency Quilts
Many thanks to Leanda and Heather for continuing to store the emergency quilt stash and sending them out quickly. Also thanks to the others who are storing emergency quilts they have made.

Labels and cards for backfilled quilts
A big thank you to those who have undertaken labels for backfilled quilts at short notice this year - this made an extra 37 quilts possible. Also, thank you to those who sent in cards to be held in reserve for backfilled quilts, it is really appreciated.

Clare Bray
A massive thank you to Clare Bray for continuing to approach companies for permission to chart our own patterns of their copyrighted characters.

Auditor
We'd like to thank Jean of Swansea who very kindly audited our accounts for free at the beginning of 2019. We'd also like to thank David Moss of Swansea for assisting with our bank account.

Superhero squares from Poland
LQUK received a brilliant package from Poland to start 2019 - containing 111 Superhero Logo squares! There were 40 Green Lantern logos, 33 Captain America logos and 38 The Flash logos! These have certainly taken the pressure off producing Superhero quilts in 2019 and we still have many to use into 2020. Many thanks to the Polish Comfort Pillow Group, headed up by Magda and Celina.

Love Quilts Canada
LQUK helped one of our stitchers, Dana, to set up Love Quilts Canada this year - the fifth chapter of LoveQuilts worldwide (with Brazil, Australia and the USA)

Magazine Appearances
We appeared in Quilt Now magazine in March 2019!



Fundraising
We cannot thank those who have undertaken fundraising for us this year enough - we really could not keep going without you! THANK YOU!! In no particular order: (please do let us know if we've left anyone out so we can add you!)

  • Alison Wells ran a secret raffle for us at Bradford Stitch Retreat and raised £100
  • Leanda, Heather and Vanessa raised £576.96 at the 7th Annual Patchwork Quilting and Craft Fayre in March in Oldham - also many thanks to those who created lap quilts and other items to sell at the fayre
  • Rebecca Powers ran a "Win a Bear" competition and raised £40
  • Krystie D sold Christmas cards for us on eBay
  • Jo Geaney donated Aida
  • Nicola Bailey kindly brought back and donated Star Wars and Harry Potter fabric during a trip to the USA
  • Sandra Wright has held a cake stall in work and raised £176
  • Leanda Vickers has made weighted lap blanket and shoulder snakes and raised £45
  • We raised £445.81 from Easyfundraising in 2019 - thanks so much to everyone who remembered to visit them before shopping on the Internet, it really does mount up!
  • We were nominated in the CapGemini Community Spirit Awards by our stitcher Christina McDonald and were awarded £500!
  • We were nominated in the OneFamily Community Grants by our stitcher Pat Brown in November and we were awarded £5000!
  • Everyone who has quietly sent in cash, cheques, Paypal donations, text donations etc. this year it has been very gratefully received!

    Thank you so much once again to you all!!

    Support from Businesses
    A big thank you to Morton Post Office for their continuing support in 2019 - always a pleasant chat and £1 off every parcel for LQUK - open on Sundays too!. Thank you very much!

    Thank you Katzstitch who have catered to LQUK stitchers by selling Aida in our required size (13 x 13 inches) and offering a discount on top.

    Thank you to Kim Hubble who has offered discount Zweigart Aida via our Facebook group.

    Also thank you to Kate of Lakeside Needlecraft who has also started selling Aida in sizes suitable for us and for running some free Aida competitions via our Facebook group too!

    We are grateful to Wonderful.org for allowing us to accept credit/debit card for free.

    In Memoriam
    We would like to pay tribute to the following children who sadly passed away in 2019: Daisy L, Jenson B, Josh T, K, Kieran M, Luke H

    We send their families our very best wishes and hope that 2020 will bring them happier times.

Many, many grateful thanks to OneFamily and to Pat! We will be spending it on quilting materials early in the New Year (in fact, we've spent a bit already!)
