2018 Review of the Year


Welcome to our review of 2018

We were 10 years old in July 2018!

We started back in July 2008 when Kat completed the quilting for Faye's quilt. A handful of stitchers have been with us since the very first quilt, with so many more friends joining us in the last 10 years. It's lovely to have you all with us. Here's to the next 10 years!

It's safe to say that 2018 has been another busy year for LoveQuiltsUK. We reached the 1000 quilts delivered milestone on 27th March 2018 and we've now received over 15,000 squares.

Here are some statistics on what we have achieved in 2018:

Total squares received in 2018: 2312 squares

Total quilts delivered in 2018: 190 quilts (2 of these were emergency quilts and 64 were backfilled quilts)

This brings our overall total to 1138 quilts since 2008. 2018 was another record year, with 190 quilts just beating last year's total of 189 :)

A massive THANK YOU to every one of you who have sent in your lovely squares, quilted them together into fab quilts, or fundraised for us this year. We thank you for your generosity in donating your time, materials and kindness :)



We have a few people that we would like to mention specifically for their efforts:

Kat
Kat has dealt with a massive number of squares this year, despite still being in full-time job with very long hours, well done Kat for keeping everything in order!

Gaynor
Gaynor has continued her efforts in sourcing fabric, doing the administration and maintaining the website. Well done, Gaynor.

Mrs T
Mrs T (Gaynor's Mum) has washed a lot of the fabric and duvet covers used for LQUK once again this year, before sending out to quilters.

Clare Bray - Calendar
A massive thank you to Clare Bray for organising, designing our fundraising calendar this year, and also getting it printed - a great effort from Clare and such a professional finish to the calendar!

Emergency Quilts
Many thanks to Leanda and Heather for continuing to store the emergency quilt stash and sending them out quickly. Also thanks to the others who are storing emergency quilts they have made.

Cards
Thank you to Sandra who has organised the cards we send out with the quilts via our Facebook group.

Labels and cards for backfilled quilts
It's certainly been the year of the backfill with 64 quilts being backfilled this year! A big thank you to those who have undertaken labels for backfilled quilts at short notice this year - this made an extra 64 quilts possible. Also, thank you to those who sent in cards to be held in reserve for backfilled quilts, it is really appreciated.

Permission from copyright holders to chart patterns
Many thanks to Clare Bray for her efforts in getting permission to allow us to chart our own patterns from the owners of copyrighted characters. This year she achieved permission from Warner Bros to chart Harry Potter characters and DC Superheroes, something she has been working on for a few years. Thank you, Clare!

Pattern designers
Grateful thanks to those who have charted patterns for us, particularly active in 2018 have been: Lisa Beckley, Beth Filmer, Deborah Clarke , Gemma Harris, Merete Langseth, Harriet Morrison, Rebecca Powers and Abigail Short. Your work has made it much easier for stitchers to stitch squares for (in particular) the popular Superheroes, Star Wars and Disney themes and has made a big difference!

This year we also developed the Pattern Listing page on our website to help stitchers navigate the patterns held in the Facebook Files section more easily.

Superhero squares
Many thanks to Magda Pietrzak who has been running a campaign for Superhero squares among her Polish contacts and others. They are due to arrive in early 2019 and will help us to complete quilts for children requesting this popular theme. Thank you, Magda!

Quilt repair
We'd like to particularly thank the LQ quilters for their help, advice and action in the repair of Riley J's quilt. It was a heroic effort with an excellent result. Thank you again.

Auditor
We'd like to thank Jean of Swansea who very kindly audited our accounts for free at the beginning of 2018. We'd also like to thank David Moss of Swansea for assisting with our bank account.

Fundraising
We cannot thank those who have undertaken fundraising for us this year enough - we really could not keep going without you! THANK YOU!! In no particular order: (please do let us know if we've left anyone out so we can add you!)

  • Christina McDonald who applied to CapGemini Charity Awards for funds for us - we were awarded £500 - thank you Christina!
  • Leanda, Heather and Nessa's amazing effort with their stall at the Patchwork Parade event in March raised £410. Many thanks also to those who contributed items for the stall, such as lap-quilts.
  • Many thanks to the family of our stitcher Susan Miller who sadly passed away. Donations in lieu of flowers totalled £1050.
  • Krystie who has been selling Christmas cards for us to raise funds.
  • Gift Aid - thank you to everyone who has sent their Gift Aid declaration in. We received £288.62 in April this year for our latest claim.
  • We raised £462.86 from Easyfundraising for the first three quarters of this year, with the fourth quarter still to come - thanks so much to everyone who remembered to visit them before shopping on the Internet, it really does mount up!
  • Everyone who has quietly sent in cash, cheques, Paypal donations, text donations etc. this year it has been very gratefully received!

    Thank you so much once again to you all!!

    Support from Businesses
    A big thank you to Morton Post Office for their continuing support in 2018 - always a cheerful smile and a chat and £1 off every parcel for LQUK. Thank you very much!

    Thank you Katzstitch who have catered to LQUK stitchers by selling Aida in our required size (13 x 13 inches) and offering a discount on top.

    Thank you to Kim Hubble who has offered discount Aida via our Facebook group.

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

    In Memoriam
    We would like to pay tribute to the following children who sadly passed away in 2018: Darcee Ella C, Grace H, Harvey T 1, Melody D, Owen M, Riley J, Skyla C, Theo S. We were also very sad to hear of our stitcher Susan Miller's passing.

    We send their families our very best wishes and hope that 2019 will bring them happier times.


    And finally...

    LQUK Calendar
    The LQ calendar has now been sent out (the last few are currently in the post). A massive thank you to Clare Bray for creating the calendar and organising the printing for us, and also to everyone who ordered a calendar! We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures on each month throughout 2019.


    Christmas Cards
    Krystie, one of our supporters, is selling Christmas card with 100% profit to LQUK, if you are interested, she is selling on eBay here: Christmas card link


    DC/Harry Potter characters chart permission
    We have recently received permission to chart our own patterns for Warner Brothers characters, which includes DC Superheroes and Harry Potter characters. The agreement is a bit tighter than the one we have with Disney in that we are not allowed to post the charts in the Files section of our Facebook group. Instead, pictures of the pattern (not the chart) will be posted in an album in the Photos section of our Facebook group. Stitchers will then need to message the creator of the pattern who will email the chart to them individually.

    You are also free to chart your own pattern, and stitch it yourself!

    A massive thank you to Clare Bray for sorting this our with Warner for us - she has been working on this for a few years!

    Square News
    We recently passed the 15,000 square mark since LQ began - thank you so much to you all for your continuing support - a mind-boggling amount of volunteer hours involved in such a number!

    We have received 193 squares since our last update! Many thanks to all those who stitched them!
