2016 Review of the Year


Welcome to our review of 2016!

We have all been very busy stitching and quilting again this year - we passed the 10,000 square milestone and we also passed the 700 quilt mark.

THANK YOU to every one of you who have sent in your lovely squares, quilted them together into fab quilts, or fundraised for us this year. We thank you for your generosity in donating your time, materials and kindness :)

Here are some statistics on what we have achieved this year:

Total squares received in 2016: 2279 squares

Total quilts delivered in 2016: 188 quilts (8 of these were emergency quilts and 42 were backfilled quilts)

This brings our overall total to 759 quilts since 2008. We are well on the way to 1,000 quilts now so a massive thank you to you all!

We have a few people that we would like to mention specifically for their efforts:

Kat
Kat has dealt with a massive number of squares this year, despite taking on a full-time job with very long hours, well done Kat for keeping everything in order!

Gaynor
Gaynor has continued her efforts in sourcing fabric, doing the administration and maintaining the website. Well done, Gaynor.

Mrs T
Mrs T (Gaynor's Mum) has washed the majority of the fabric and duvet covers used for LQUK once again this year, before sending out to quilters. There has been a massive amount of fabric to be dealt with this year, thank you Mrs T for your largely unseen efforts!

Clare Bray - Calendar
A massive thank you to Clare Bray for organising, designing our fundraising calendar this year, and also getting it printed - a great effort from Clare and such a professional finish to the calendar!

Emergency Quilts
Many thanks to Leanda and Heather for continuing to store the emergency quilt stash and sending them out quickly. 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.

Labels and cards for backfilled quilts
A big thank you to those who have undertaken labels and cards for backfilled quilts at short notice this year - this made an extra 42 quilts possible.

Auditor
We'd like to thank Jean of Swansea who very kindly audited our accounts for free at the beginning of 2016. We'd also like to thank David Moss of Swansea for assisting with our bank account.


Fundraising
We cannot thank those who have undertaken fundraising for us this year enough - we really could not keep going without you! THANK YOU!! In no particular order: (please do let us know if we've left anyone out so we can add you!)

  • Everyone who has quietly sent in cash, cheques, Paypal donations, text donations etc. this year it has been very gratefully received!

    Thank you so much once again to you all!!


    Support from Businesses
    A big thank you to Morton Post Office for their continuing support in 2016 - always a cheerful smile and a chat and £1 off every parcel for LQUK. Thank you very much!

    We would like to thank Lee Mill Fabrics in Swansea for offering LQUK a discount on cotton fabrics this year.

    Thank you Katzstitch who have catered to LQUK stitchers by selling Aida in our required size (13 x 13 inches) and offering a discount on top.

    Thank you to Kim Hubble who has offered discount Aida via our Facebook group.

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


    Registered Charity
    LoveQuiltsUK passed the £5000 turnover per year threshold this year. We applied and were granted Registered Charity status in 2016. Thank you to all those involved in the immense administrative efforts to achieve this, particularly those acting as trustees.


    Magazine Appearances
    This year we appeared in World of Cross Stitching (February 2016) and we have an appearance in Cross Stitch Crazy coming up in early 2017.


    In Memoriam
    We would like to pay tribute to the following children who sadly passed away in 2016: Amber J, Amelia Rose, Ellie N, Erika M , Oscar W, Rebekah B, We send their families our very best wishes and hope that 2017 will bring them happier times.

    We would also like to pay tribute to our stitcher, Rita Turner and Denise Currie, who passed away in 2016.
