    Charity for Tax Purposes
    We are very pleased to announce that LoveQuiltsUK has been recognised as a Charity for Tax Purposes by HMRC. This means that amongst other things, we can claim Gift Aid on donations from UK Tax Payers. As we can backdate our claims to March 2011, Gaynor has started contacting everyone who has so kindly donated since that time.

    News 20 Aug 2011 - 30 Aug 2011



    Quilt News
    Gaynor made the long trek to Katherine's house in Lincolnshire over the Bank Holiday (it is about a five hour drive - Gaynor lives in Swansea). Katherine and Gaynor spent two days sorting out fabrics for the next 30 quilts or so.

    Here we are sorting out fabric!



    Not all of this fabric has been paid for yet, but as donations come in we will slowly pay Gaynor back for the fabric she purchased on our behalf in the USA recently.

    The border fabrics provisionally chosen for each child's quilt has been put on their page for you to see. The fabric *may* change as a few of the quilters have offered to provide their own fabric. If this happens, we will transfer the currently allocated fabric to a future quilt of the same theme.

    The next quilts to be worked on will be Evan (by Joan), Niamh (by Gaynor) and Kelli G (by Mary). Gaynor is currently communicating with quilters about Tia-Rose's quilt, Lennon S's quilt and Joshua D's quilt whose deadlines are on August 31st.

    We are also pulling together a "Winnie-The-Pooh and Friends" quilt which will be held for emergency purposes. We had some donated Winnie-The-Pooh fabric and realised we had enough Pooh-related squares from the Disney Characters Stitch-a-long and from our Any Child Square stash. Katherine will be putting this quilt together and she is looking forward to quilting without a deadline for once!


    Quilts opened/closed
    We anticipate that four new quilts will open on Saturday 10th September at 5pm (British time)
