Fundraising News
We have had a flurry of fundraising events happening recently and we would like to thank the following people:

  • Emma Kearsley has been busy with a Thorntons tombola and Valentine's card sale at work and has raised £121.32! Emma says, "Never underestimate how much people love chocolate!" Thank you Emma for your efforts!





  • Sophie and Alice pictured below are the daughters of Deborah Found-Bloodworth, one of our stitchers. They convinced a few of their friends to help raise money for Lovequilts for a school assignment. They raised over £100 hosting a treasure hunt - final total still to come. Many thanks to both of you for your efforts!



  • Well done to the Rotary Club of Romsey who raised £153.38 from sponsorship from walkers walking the River Test Way!

    Finally, we would like to thank Moira and her family for £300 in donations collected at the funeral of her beautiful daughter Chantelle. Thank you for thinking of us at such a difficult time, Moira, and we know our stitchers have been thinking about you and your family too.

    Thank you so much to everyone involved in these quilts!


    Signups 2016
    Now that we are completing more quilts, we are going to trial opening to new signups on Wednesdays and Saturdays rather than randomly as we were doing before. Please keep an eye on the website on those days for new signups.


    Lottery 2016
    The lottery for quilts has now been re-set and anyone in it last year will NOT be carried over - however, all you need do is reapply here: Enter quilt lottery. We re-start the lottery every year on January 1st as sometimes child's circumstances have changed, and often contact details for parents have changed too.


    Love Quilts USA
    We have heard lately that the original LoveQuilts based in the USA temporarily closed and has now re-opened as "Love Quilts USA" with new organisers drawn from the original. Thank you to Cathy who founded the original LQ and best wishes. There is a new URL for LQ USA which is here: Love Quilts USA
