LoveQuilts UK News
Update 18th June 2020
LQUK is still on pause - while England is opening up a fair bit now, the devolved nations, especially Wales and Scotland are still pretty firmly locked down.
We would prefer UK stitchers not to go to the post office with their squares at the moment, but we are happy to accept online post. You can do this by weighing your parcel, paying and printing out your postage at home, and posting it straight into a postbox.
If you would like to send your squares by online post, please email us at email@example.com and Gaynor will email you back with full instructions and addresses :)
Stitchers outside the UK, where lockdown is over and it is safe to go to the post office, please email for the address.
News 21 May 2020
Just thought we'd post to say hello. We're still basically in lockdown here in the UK. Restrictions have been eased slightly in England (not Wales, Scotland or NI), but the guidance still states "stay at home as much as possible" so LQUK is still on pause until that is lifted.
If you live in an overseas territory where restrictions have been lifted (New Zealand for example) we are happy for you to send your squares to us, please email us for the address details.
Rest assured, LQUK will be back when restrictions have been lifted. We know many of you have stitched your signup squares and have them ready to post when this occurs.
We are not opening any more quilts for now, as there will be a quilting backlog to get through when restrictions are lifted, but in the meantime, High Priority Any Child Squares are always very welcome if you'd like to stitch some while we wait to get back to normal :)
Hope you're all well out there!
