    Sponsored walk
    More fundraising has been going on since our last update, and we would like to thank our stitcher Rachael Green, her son Thomas (10) and her sister Sarah Ward for undertaking a sponsored walk in aid of LoveQuiltsUK. They describe the walk as follows:

    "12.5 miles along the canal from The Star pub in the canal town of Stone, through glorious Staffordshire Countryside, past the world-known Wedgewood Factory, past the home of Stoke City Football Club, the Britannia Stadium and through the heart of the potteries, with our destination being Wesport Lake in the north of the city."

    Well, despite a rather rainy day, they did it, and raised £400 for LQUK! Well done Rachael, Sarah and Thomas (and Beth who joined in for the last half mile!) Here are some photos of the walk:





    Thank you again and hope those aching muscles are on the mend!


    Lee Mill Fabrics
    We would like to thank Lee Mill Fabrics in Swansea for offering LQUK a discount on the fabric we buy from them. They are an independent fabric store and their shop is like Aladdin's cave - just look at the video on their website! Well worth a visit if you're in the Swansea area!
