Hi! and welcome to SOLAK.
are a completely non-profit organisation that makes quilts for children
and adults with long-term illnesses.
We aim to show people, that may be in need of a bit of love and
support, that there are others who are thinking of them and wishing them
well. Sometimes it can make
all the difference to know that someone, somewhere, is willing you to
carry on and fight the battle that these illnesses can be.
members cross stitch squares that are then made into quilts and sent to
people, of all ages, all over the world.
have no deadlines and members can stitch any theme that they choose.
All our stitchers have different abilities and we want everyone
to be able to join in. We
have some very basic sizing guidelines to make sure that all the squares
we receive can be used but other than that what and when you stitch is
entirely up to you. Please
check out our squares section here if you are
interested in getting involved.
can request a quilt be it for themselves, a relative, a neighbour or a
friend. All you need is a
valid email address and a good home for one of quilts to go to.
There is more information about our quilts and how to request one
fun exploring the rest of our site.
Have a look at our photo albums to see some of our completed
quilts and squares that have been stitched so far or drop by our forum.
One of the best things about SOLAK is that it has grown to be a
very friendly community and we love meeting new people.
Feel free to drop bye and say hi.
Stitching chat is always welcome!
