    Calendar 2017
    Calendar orders are now complete and we will be sending out 93 calendars to those who ordered them around the end of November. Thank you for your support!


    Forthcoming Magazine Article
    We have been interviewed for a forthcoming cross stitch magazine and provided several photos of LQUK activity. Many thanks to Clare Bray for sorting out the photos for us. We will keep you informed when the article will be appearing - watch this space!


    Square News
    We have received 65 squares since our last update! Many thanks to all those who have sent in their beautiful work for the children!

    We apologise that it is taking a few days longer than usual to upload squares, as Kat is still extremely busy working long hours in her job. Please bear with us and your squares will appear soon. We have had only a handful of squares lost in the post over the last 8 years (and over 10,500 squares) so they are extremely unlikely to have gone astray.
