The vast majority of our quilts are made to match requests submitted by the sailors, soldiers, airmen and airwomen who will receive them.
Every Monday on the blog I put out a list of the quilts and laundry bags that people are asking for. If you would like to make a quilt and do not find any requests that appeal then please let me know, I am sure we can work something out.
I strongly suggest that you contact me before you start a quilt so that we name make sure that what you are making will have a home once you have finished it.
Many of my quilters like to have a starting point so that they know that the quilt/bag they are making will fit with the recipient's tastes. The recipients are asked to give me their favourite colours, hobbies and interests. They will ask for every sort of quilt/bag you have ever imagined and a few you have never considered. Often they will include lots of information and the requests can look bewildering but you have to remember that often they do not know what to ask for or what is possible so the idea is to try and make something that somehow relates to their request without trying to include everything they ask for ... unless you really want to.
You are under no obligation to make anything from the list each week but it will show you what people are asking for. If you would like to take on one of the quilts or laundry bags on the list then send me an email.
Providing I have your name, address and phone number I will send you their details. You then have 5-6 weeks to make a quilt and/or bag and get it in the mail. If you need longer than that please let me know. We will work something out.
