Quilt News
Hello everyone! Unfortunately the hot weather seems to have disappeared and we're back to warmish weather with drizzle - much more like the British summers we are used to. Gaynor has had a few days off for good behaviour ;-) and has been away to Cornwall. Kat is busy at work, but continues to upload the squares she's received as often as she can.

7 quilts have been delivered since our last update, with about another 8 in the post, so look out for the next news update for those!

Thank you very much to everyone who participated in making these quilts.


Square cleanliness
A few squares have come in stained lately and have had to be re-washed and in a few extreme cases, treated with bleach on an ear-bud as a last resort(!) After washing, if you can still see a hoop mark, it probably needs a machine wash to get it out (slow spin, inside a pillowcase). If you do spill tea or similar on your square while stitching, just run it under the tap straightaway - once it dries in it's very difficult to shift!

    Susan Miller
    We were very sorry to hear that Susan Miller, one of our stitchers had passed away. We were contacted by Susan's family with a generous donation for LQUK in lieu of funeral flowers. We thank Susan's family and friends very much for their kind generosity at a such a difficult time, and we send our condolences for their loss. We will miss Susan as a stitcher.


    Early quilt
    We received an email recently regarding a quilt that we delivered back in 2010.

    I have been looking through my old emails to try and find your contact details. I just wanted to let you know in 2010 you made a special quilt for Alexander K and it is still used every day. He would not feel the same not going to bed without his quilt or on his Hospital stays. After all this time you are still making a difference to a little boy's happiness.

    2010:


    2018:



    GDPR
    We have recently emailed all of our stitchers to ask for permission to continue to email them in light of new legislation. Please see this page for details: GDPR


    Polycotton thread
    We have had a few incidents lately regarding polycotton thread which has melted under our quilters' irons.



    We are really keen to avoid damage to both irons and squares! Please could you make sure that the threads you use are 100% cotton - (DMC/Anchor/Madeira) are best. Please do not be tempted by cheap deals on eBay as these are usually poor quality polycotton.
