In memory of Liz Welch

1960 - 2017

So far we have raised


Liz had many talents and attributes. She was a gifted artist, a loving mother and wife. and a lynchpin of the family. She wrote an amazing piece about dying that should help anyone else in the same situation. It is on her blog; called "All good things must come to an end". She was positive about everything she did, including dying. She wanted very much that her death might do some good for others and perhaps stop other women facing their own mortality from this cruel disease. This charity was her choice, So, if you cared about her, or love her like I do, Please donate as generously as you can. Thank you. Bobbie

We continue to sell Liz's bits and pieces she used to make all her fantastic creations. This time money has come from West Bridgford Embroiderers' Guild, various Machine Knitting Clubs and Shows, Ashby Magna Braiding Group, and Origami friends. More to come.

From a member of Nolitex, for purchasing some of Lizs stash of jewellery findings. A lovely way to remember her when they get used and made into jewellery pieces.

Today, more than a year after my lovely sister died, I still miss her terribly. However, every bit of fundraising will help to ensure that others don't need to go through the grief of loosing someone special


26 November 2018


Liz's treasures of craft items have been sold at many different places including West Bridgford Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild and East Midlands Region, the Braiding Group at Ashby Magna, Origami Group at Wentworth, Lichfield and Long Buckby Knitting Clubs, Lace Society and other friends. More sales at different venues are planned. Thank you to all who have made a donation and I hope the special something that you found will keep Liz in memory.

Donations from the sale of postcards- a Nolitex group project which Liz instigated and took part in. We all participated by completing half a postcard in our chosen media then passed on to each member to complete, resulting in a wonderful collection of artwork. 20 were chosen (from nearly a 100)to be printed and were sold at our exhibition venues. We all have our own postcards, completed by Liz, to remember her by.
