News 1 Jan 2015 - 22 Jan 2015


January is passing in a whirl - Gaynor has been moving house so we are a bit late with our first update of 2015. A lot has already been happening at LQUK though! First, some very sad news. One of our stitchers Judith Saebel sadly passed away quite suddenly last Saturday after suffering a stroke :( We would like to pay tribute to Judith who stitched a number of lovely squares and cards for LQUK. Judith's squares can be seen here and the quilts Judith's squares featured on are here Our thoughts are with Judith's family. Rest in peace, Judith.

    2014 Review of the Year


    Welcome to the LoveQuiltsUK review of 2014!

    It’s been a truly record-breaking year for LoveQuiltsUK and we’d like to spend a little while looking back over the year and thanking people who have helped us.

    Gaynor has tried to remember everything that’s happened during this year but life is busy and she may have forgotten a few things! If you feel we’ve left you out, please do email us on contact@lovequiltsuk.com and we will gladly add you to the year review!


    Stitching and Quilting
    We have all been very busy during 2014 stitching squares, stitching and making cards and quilting!

    Total squares received in 2014: 1991 squares!

    Total quilts delivered in 2014: 141 Quilts! (14 of these were emergency quilts)
    That brings our overall total to 396 quilts since 2008.

    We passed our 5000 square milestone in April, and our 6000 square milestone in October! We also passed our 300 quilt milestone in May, and as we enter the New Year we are very close to 400 quilts (currently 396)

    THANK YOU to every one of you who have sent in beautiful squares and/or quilted them together into gorgeous quilts this year. We are humbled by your kindness and generosity of spirit.


    Fundraising
    We have had a large number of people who have contributed to fundraising this year, they include:
    • Karen Guy selling cross-stitch cards in January - £20.50
    • Nessa Vickers £102 Supermarket bag pack
    • Marie Firth Christmas stall
    • Bob and Jenny, £400 raised from the Duke and Dragon Lodge.
    • Morton Village Shop sponsorship - £1.15 off each parcel sent by Kat this year.
    • Brenda £250
    • Leanda and Heather £169 in craft fayre in March
    • Christchurch Productions £250 in April
    • Direct Debit vote £100 plus £500 Emma Kearsley best fundraiser!
    • Macdonald Sports and Social Committee in Altrincham - Dress down and cake sale day
    • Lisa £40 – Bike Ride
    • Sarah £275 – dress down day
    • LesleyAnnCurran £55
    • Lisa Toner £40 Chocolate raffle in June
    • Becky Homes £326.61 – Santa and Snowmen banner raffle
    • Vicky Bailey - Lap quilt sale in December
    • Mrs T - £120 giving talks to groups such as the Mothers’ Union.

    We’d also like to thank:
    • Cath Willey for running and Any Child Square drive in April with a prize
    • Emma Kearsley for leading the Direct Debit vote in May – we came 5th while up against much larger charities, with over 2000 votes.
    • Clare Bray who works with Post Pals very kindly took up the mantle of producing a calendar for LoveQuiltsUK this year, which sold 110 copies at £10 each. Clare also helped to organise plastic packs and envelopes to mail the calendars out. Thank you very much for your efforts Clare!
    • Thanks to those of you who have supported us via Easyfundraising - we have raised £576.97 since April this year when we began!
    • Gift Aid - £740 was reclaimed on donations made in 2013 – well worth doing and thank you to everyone who has sent their Gift Aid declaration in.
    • …and to everyone who has quietly sent in cash, cheques, Paypal donations, text donations etc. this year – it is gratefully received
    THANK YOU to everyone involved with Fundraising this year, you are the backbone of LoveQuiltsUK and we really could not keep gong without you! Thank you again!!


    Emergency Quilts
    Many thanks to Leanda and Heather for taking on the job of storing the emergency quilt stash and sending them out quickly – this has really helped Kat and Gaynor out. Also thanks to the others who are storing emergency quilts they have made.

    Cards
    Thank you to Sandra and Debbie who organise the cards we send out with the quilts via our Facebook group.

    Mrs T
    Mrs T (Gaynor’s Mum) has washed the majority of the fabric and duvet covers used for LQUK this year, before sending out to quilters. Thank you Mrs T for your largely unseen efforts!


    Auditor
    We’d like to thank Jean of Swansea who very kindly audited our accounts for free at the beginning of 2013. We’d also like to thank David Moss of Swansea for assisting with our bank account.


    Support from Businesses
    We would like to particularly thank Lee Mill Fabrics in Swansea for offering LQUK a discount on cotton fabrics this year, Katzstitch who have catered to LQUK stitchers by selling Aida in our required size (13 x 13 inches) and offering a discount on top, and Colour Catchers who donated 36 boxes to us a couple of years back and we are still using them!

    We are also grateful to BTMyDonate and Just Text Giving from Vodafone for allowing us to accept credit/debit card and SMS donations for free.


    Magazine Appearances
    We have appeared in the following magazines this year:

    • Cross Stitch Collection magazine June
    • World of Cross Stitching - Sept
    • South Wales Evening Post - Sept
    • Swansea Life Magazine - Sept


    In Memoriam
    It is the nature of our work that some of our quilt recipients pass away from time to time :( This year we would like to remember: Jack B, William F, Ryan M and Harvey M.

    Rest in peace xx

    Lincoln R's quilt was opened

    Christmas Wall Hangings
    Becky Holmes has raffled the Christmas Wall Hangings made from snowman/santa squares donated by our stitchers earlier in the year and made £326.61. Well done and many thanks to Becky and all the stitchers who sent in a snowman :)


    Fundraising Lap Quilts
    Further to our last news, almost £100 has been raised from sale of lap quilts so far. Well done to the quilters involved in the project. See our Fundraising Facebook group for further details.


    Lottery reboot
    Just a reminder to all parents applying for quilts in our Quilt Lottery that the lottery will be reset at the end of the year, and you will need to reapply for the 2015 lottery from January 1st onwards. We are finding it increasingly difficult to contact parents by email and at least 15 children have missed out on their chance for a quilt because of this (although 15 more got a chance instead!) Please make sure that our email: contact@lovequiltsuk.com is in your safe senders list so our emails don't get lost in a spam box. For the 2015 lottery, we will require a mobile phone number so that we can text you.
