Sign-ups
There has been some discussion on Facebook recently that stitchers are frustrated trying to sign-up for quilts as they open and closed so quickly. Unfortunately, we have an imbalance between stitchers and quilters/funds at the moment and we need to rectify this before we can take on more new quilts. However, we have decided to reduce the number of concurrent signups from 5 to 3 to give more people a chance to sign-up. We continue to take Any Child squares which do not need to be signed up for and we intend to introduce a "featured" theme for Any Child squares we are particularly short of.

We have also set up a separate Facebook group for discussion of fundraising - one of which is creating cross-stitched cards to sell locally (or on Mrs T's stall). Even if you are not a member of Facebook, you can still read the discussions. The group is here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/LoveQuiltsUKFundraising
