    Donations
    Also many thanks for your cash/cheques/Paypal donations this week, it is really appreciated. Recently we have been investing in wadding for the quilters, so each can have their own small roll (this saves posting bulky packages and on postage). We have also had a huge number of quilts go out to quilters recently - at one point we had 17 quilts under construction at once! At £5.30 per quilt just to post out you can imagine the hole this leaves in funds. So many thanks to everyone who donates to us! :)

    Kat
    Kat has started her chemotherapy this week, we wish her all the best :)


    Quilt News
    No quilts have been delivered this week, but Mia F's squares and Matthew W's squares have now gone off to their quilters. Skyla C's squares will be going off to her quilter in the next few days as all of her squares have arrived early.

    We have also heard from our quilter Vicky that Ollie E's quilt is now complete and will be posted to him in the next few days. :)


    Quilts opened/closed
    Ava S's quilt was opened and closed.
    Daniel L's quilt was opened.


    Late Squares
    Gaynor has been finding it very time-consuming chasing up late squares, and this month will see a busier time at work so she will have less free time. Late squares cause difficulties when a quilter has been lined up who has a limited time window (eg due to family holidays). Additionally, it means more journeys to the post office (which is tricky as Gaynor works full-time). Therefore we will be enforcing the square deadlines more strictly from this month - ie late squares will be substituted with Any Child squares. Squares arriving after the deadline will be held in our Any Child section for use on a future quilt :)
