A Very Special Thank You from The Bursar of Ackworth School

It is too exciting! I cannot save this news. I have just this moment had an email from the Bursar of Ackworth School:

Dear Jacqueline,
A staggering £3395 so far; the school is very grateful to everyone who has taken part and donated.
Best regards,


My goodness - we did it! We have just done something wonderful - together. Please take a moment to smile and think about what you have achieved!


  1. Wow! I just punched that figure into a currency converter, and it comes out to almost $5600 US! How wonderful!

  2. And I just divided it by 9 - does that mean over 600 people are stitching Mary Wigham? Gosh, what an amazing thought!

  3. AWESOME -- just simply awesome....

  4. Jacqueline - you deserve the credit for all the hard work and donation of your time to this huge project. You have given tirelessly of your time and energy to make so many stitchers happy. A great big thanks and hugs to you and all the stitchers who donated to this worthy project. Melody

  5. It is amazing that we achieved this while all stitching together, enjoying ourselves, and communicating with fellow stitchers all over the world!!

    I would like to thank you again for all your hard work and kindness. It has been an honor to be Head Girl for such a wonderful project! And a huge thank you on behalf of all the Japanese stitchers too!


  6. I am so excited to have been a part of this international effort. Many thanks to you, Jacqueline, the other people who have assisted you, and all the country head girls. Great job!
    Now I just have to figure out how to stitch faster...

  7. I have been so honored to be a part of this special SAL. I truly hope that, with all our donations, the Ackworth School receives more than they normally would have if Mary Wigham had been printed and sold as a chart. Thanks so much for many enjoyable stitching hours.


  8. Epoustouflant, mirobolant as would say my grand-daughter if she could understand! I'm so proud to have been (and still be) a part of this! Thank you for all your efforts, dear Jacqueline, and I will finish with your own words : "when was a token of love ever simple or small, orfor that matter, without use?"
