    Wholesale Fabric
    Gaynor has been in touch with the distributor for Springs Creative fabric in the UK and we have become a wholesale customer for their Disney fabrics, which will be arriving at LQ HQ in January. Disney fabric is very expensive and quite hard to find in the UK, so this is a most welcome development!


    Celtic Heart Fundraising
    Our long-time supporter Magda Pietrzak is raising funds for us by offering her lovely Celtic Heart pattern for 5. The pattern may be used for personal use, or for LoveQuiltsUK use! She has already raised 25 for us - thank you very much Magda. For more details, please see dedicated Facebook group here: Celtic Heart group

    Here is an sample that Magda stitched:



    The chart will be available until the end of 2015.


    Freyja's Hair Cut
    Freyja is doing very well with her sponsorship for her forthcoming charity hair cut - please see her to follow her efforts: Freyja's fundraising page. The haircut will take place on Tuesday 1st December at 4pm.
