    Thank you to everyone who has sent in donations since the start of the year, it is really appreciated x


    2013 Review of the Year


    Welcome to our review of 2013. This was the sixth year of LQUK - how time is flying by! It has once again been an excellent year!

    We started the year with Kat still undergoing chemotherapy and Gaynor and Mrs T holding the LoveQuiltsUK fort in Swansea. Thank you to Mrs T for receiving and uploading the squares to the website during this time. Kat finished chemotherapy around March and is back with us at LQUK, continuing on her way back to full health. :)

    We have welcomed many new stitchers and several new quilters this year - and a huge number of our established stitchers and quilters have continued to support us. It really does feel like "one big happy family"! More cross-stitchers took the plunge into the quilting world and now quilt for us too!

    We have completed a record-breaking 81 quilts this year (up from 77 last year). The total is actually a bit higher as we have also have 11 emergency quilts completed and ready to go out when requests come in. Thank you so much for the thousands of hours that have been put in to the quilts this year - it really is humbling what time and effort is put into the squares and the quilting by stitchers all around the world, including USA, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and all over the UK. THANK YOU ALL!!!


    Fundraising
    Fundraising is an often unseen part of our work but absolutely vital. Without fundraising we would not be able to buy fabric for our quilts, post the squares out to the quilters and the quilts to the children or meet the costs of running the website. We are so grateful to everyone who sends in donations big and small - even a few pounds here and there soon adds up. As we continue to expand the number of quilts we are making each month (currently 8-9), fundraising also has to expand to keep up.

    We would like to single out a few individuals whose fundraising efforts have made a huge difference to LQUK this year with some fundraising events this year. We cannot tell you what an impact your efforts have had and have really eased some financial headaches for Gaynor and Katherine.

    They are:
    • Nessa Vickers - what a wonderful fundraising lead Nessa has taken this year - first with a walk up Helvellyn and later with a Zumbathon. She has raised over £1400 for us in 2013 - THANK YOU NESSA - and her friends from Body Conditioning and Lyrical Dance :)

    • Seren Senior and her husband completed the Great North Swim for us in June, swimming a mile across the cold waters of Lake Windermere! Seren raised £200. Thank you very very much!

    • Rachael Green and her family did a sponsored Canal Walk in May and raised £500. Thank you Rachael and family!

    • Marie Firth did a fundraiser at her hospital fayre and raised £150 - thank you Marie!

    • Jill Smith raised £68.26 - many thanks Jill!

    • Leanda and friends ran a stall in Oldham and raised £147 - thank you Leanda and co!

    • Thank you also to a few individuals who have organised donations through their work or club organisation. We weren't sure if you wanted to be mentioned by name - you know who you are and we are very grateful :)
    We do hope we have not forgotten anyone - so much has gone on in LQUK this year it is very hard to remember every detail - please let us know if we've omitted you and we'll add you in straight away with our apologies!

    Although we have singled some people out above, we must stress we are grateful for ALL donations - big and small :) Every penny counts - as a well-known supermarket is fond of saying - and every penny raised goes straight into the running of LQUK. We are all volunteers so LQUK has few overheads.


    Gift Aid
    Gift Aid brought in £317 for donations received in 2012 - well worth the administrative effort! If you are a tax-payer, you are eligible for Gift Aid - it does not affect your tax return in any way - you just need to fill in a form and we reclaim the money directly from HMRC. Please contact us if you think you are eligible :)


    Auditor
    Thank you so much to Jean in Swansea who audited our accounts for free again this year - thank you Jean!!!


    Support from Businesses
    We would like to particularly thank Lee Mill Fabrics in Swansea for offering LQUK a discount on cotton fabrics this year and Katzstitch who have catered to LQUK stitchers by selling Aida in our required size (13 x 13 inches) and offering a discount on top. We'd also like to thank Patchwork Parade in Manchester who run a class which had a Quiltathon for us, putting together four emergency quilts for our stocks.

    Thank you very much for your support, it is really appreciated and gratefully accepted.

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


    Magazine Appearances
    We appeared in Cross Stitch Crazy Issue 177 and World of Cross Stitching Issue 203! - our magazine fame continues!! Thank you to these publications for the exposure.


    Cards
    We started a side-project to create a small cross-stitch card to put in with each quilt - thank you to Sandra and Debbie for organising this via our Facebook group.


    In Memoriam
    Sadly, a few of the children we have donated quilts to passed away in 2013 :(

    We would like to pay tribute to:
    Alice P, Jamie J, Henry A, Cody M, Louise G, Elizabeth A and John-Paul.

    Rest in peace, little ones.


    Meet-up
    Several of our stitchers held a meet in Manchester and spent some happy hours getting to know each other in person. We are glad that LQUK could bring you together!


    Squares received in 2013

    Total squares received in 2013: 2546 squares!

    Wow - what a fantastic total. Thank you so much to everyone who sent in squares this year for your hard work and commitment :)


    Quilts completed in 2013
    Finally - what we are all about, delivering quilts to children and creating smiles!

    81 Quilts were delivered in 2013!

    That brings our overall total to 255 quilts since 2008. What a lot of hard work. Well done, everyone!
