Christmas Wall Hangings
Becky Holmes has raffled the Christmas Wall Hangings made from snowman/santa squares donated by our stitchers earlier in the year and made 326.61. Well done and many thanks to Becky and all the stitchers who sent in a snowman :)


Fundraising Lap Quilts
Further to our last news, almost 100 has been raised from sale of lap quilts so far. Well done to the quilters involved in the project. See our Fundraising Facebook group for further details.


Lottery reboot
Just a reminder to all parents applying for quilts in our Quilt Lottery that the lottery will be reset at the end of the year, and you will need to reapply for the 2015 lottery from January 1st onwards. We are finding it increasingly difficult to contact parents by email and at least 15 children have missed out on their chance for a quilt because of this (although 15 more got a chance instead!) Please make sure that our email: contact@lovequiltsuk.com is in your safe senders list so our emails don't get lost in a spam box. For the 2015 lottery, we will require a mobile phone number so that we can text you.
