Message from Jill Smith: 'Gale has given me permission to post this request for your help as a fair few of you stitch for LQUK.
I am part of a group of cross stitchers and quilters, Love Quilts UK,
who who make quilts for children with life-long or life-limiting
illnesses. We are entered in to a competition where we could win a
donation of up to £2000 (this would be a huge amount for us!) but we
need votes. The charity with the most votes gets the highest prize so
please please could you click on this link and vote for us, it costs you
nothing just a few seconds of your time. Many thanks xx
LoveQuiltsUK is a small charity that makes personalised quilts for
children with terminal or life-long illnesses. We are supported by an
international team of volunteer cross-stitchers who send in cross-stitch
blocks, and volunteer quilters who put these blocks together into
beautiful quilts.The children who receive the quilts use them on
hospital visits or at home for comfort. We have had a lot of feedback on
how much easier it makes hospital stays when the children have
something familiar with them on their bed.
Since 2008, we have put together almost 300 quilts. Each quilt costs
around £35-£40 for materials, postage etc. If you would be kind enough
to vote for us, we will put any money awarded straight into making
quilts for children - everyone who is involved with LoveQuiltsUK is a
volunteer, so we have few overheads. Thank you!'
