Thank you so much to everyone involved in producing these quilts!


Thread/Aida Donation
Thank you so much to the lovely Holly Hinton of Holly's Hobbies who has sent us a large donation of Aida and threads. She has wound up her business selling cross stitch kits (although she still sells patterns) and has donated the remaining materials to LQUK. We would like to send out the materials to stitchers to help them to stitch future squares/cards for us. The Aida itself is not suitable for squares as it is coloured, but it would be very suitable for cards.

We are happy to absorb the cost of posting under the circumstances (International - skeins rather than cones please!) and hope to share these out among many stitchers.

Gaynor has asked for names and addresses upfront to make it easier for her to post out, the info will be kept private. For any items that more than one person wants (eg the cones) there will be a random draw to decide who gets what :)

Please indicate the materials you'd like here: http://www.lovequiltsuk.com/threads/

Please register your interest by Saturday, 11th March. Thank you again, Holly!

    Cross Stitch Crazy magazine
    We are appearing in the March 2017 edition of Cross Stitch Crazy magazine! We thank the magazine for featuring us!




    Late Squares
    We had a few problems sorting out the quilt packs for last month as quite a few squares came in right on the deadline, unwashed. This does tend to hold up ALL of the quilt packs, not just the ones the squares are for, as Kat cannot visit the post office multiple times due to work commitments. We would ask stitchers not to leave their stitching until the last minute! :)


    Patterns for Princesses and Superheroes
    Several of our stitchers who are not on Facebook have emailed us to ask about patterns for our most required Any Child themes (ie Disney Princesses and Superheroes). We do have some legal patterns available for LQUK use only - please email us for details.

    Those who are on Facebook, please ask on the FB group for details :)
