    Registered Charity
    We are pleased to tell you that LoveQuiltsUK is now a Registered Charity! Many don't realise that a charity can't be registered until their turnover is over £5000 a year. We have now reached that point! While being registered means more paperwork, it does mean that we can apply for grants etc more easily. Well done to everyone involved in LoveQuiltsUK that has brought us to this point :)

    Our stitcher and quilter Tracey Phillips has completed a half-marathon and raised £500 for us! Thank you so much Tracey, a wonderful effort!
