Fundraising Fayre
Thank you very much to Leanda, Heather and Nessa, and everyone who made items and contributed materials. They made a splendid £385 for us (with some extra from eBay sales on top!)

Here are some photos of them in action - thank you very much again for your efforts, ladies!






Website issues
Last week we experienced some issues with the website falling over at peak times (for example during times when quilts open). Gaynor has been optimising the website's code to lower the number of hits on our database and we have also moved on to a higher website hosting package. Both of these things will hopefully resolve the previous problems.


Holly's Hobbies
Further to our post in the last news, the threads/Aida donated by Holly Hinton of Holly's Hobbies has now been despatched. There was a lot of interest in the stash and everyone got at least part of what they requested. Thank you again to Holly!


Gift Aid
Gaynor has submitted our latest Gift Aid form which should allow us to claim £750 back from HMRC. Thank you to everyone who has filled in a Gift Aid form. If you are a UK taxpayer and want to fill in a Gift Aid form, it will allow us to claim an extra 25% on any donations you make with no cost to you. The Gift Aid form can be found on our Donations page

    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 :)
