12 February 2024 Request List

Written by ahq_admin

12 February 2024

Hi All

Two big requests this week to help me administratively.

Admin%20Assistance

PLEASE INCLUDE NAME AND PM KEYS

Firstly, when you send any emails about a request can you please make sure you include the name and preferably the PM keys (service number) in your email.  You and I may have been emailing back and forth about a particular request, or maybe you have just received one email from me.  The problem is that I am communicating to LOTS of people about requests all day and so it is really hard to keep track of each individual conversation and it is time consuming if I have to search for previously sent emails or search the request list to find which request you are doing.  If you can include the recipient’s details it will really help me out. It is even more helpful if you can reply to the previous email I sent regarding a request so that I can scroll down and check whatever details I need to. Hope that makes sense.

PLEASE CHECK I HAVE INCLUDED EVERYTHING THAT IS NEEDED

Also, if I allocate a request to you, and that request requires a crest or badge that either needs to be printed or embroidered, please make sure that I have included that in the email.

Sometimes I forget to include the email address of the embroiderer so they do not know it is requested.

Sometimes I forget to include the request for the embroideries in the email.

Sometimes I forget to mention that I will send a prepaid satchel or a printed image.

If you can please double check the email I send you when you get it then that will save possible delays when you are waiting to start your project. Hope this makes sense. Please send me an email if you are not clear on anything.

Here is the request list for this week. Happy hunting. I hope you can find something that tickles your fancy.

PRIORITY REQUESTS

All the requests on our list are in priority order. This week the first THIRTY requests are all people overseas on deployment including a bunch of folk who have just arrived in the Sinai in Egypt. Some of the top 30 are in the Solomon Islands, one is in Iraq and we also have a representative or two from Dubai. Let’s get these quilts and bags underway and put some smiles on faces that are a long way from home!

POST BY DATE

The post by date for all Requests on this list is 18 March 2024 please, or earlier if you can manage this.  If you cannot make that date, please let me know. Do reach out if you have any timing issues and we’ll resolve one way or the other. In fact, if you are going to be late posting it please let me know BEFORE you post it.  Also, if this time frame is too tight for you, there are options, just email me to discuss, thank you.

Request Information

When selecting a request, remember, you do not have to include everything they have asked for. Footy quilts do not need to have the logo or even the team’s name. Using the team colours is all that is required. Simple is perfectly acceptable.  A number of these requests have given you favourite colours as well as footy teams or other hobbies and interests. It is fine to make a quilt using their favourite colours and include only one of their interests.  It is fine to keep it simple.

If there is more than one request on this list that you would be happy to do I suggest that you send me a list of requests and tell me how many you want to be allocated….i.e. one of the following please….There are always a few requests that everyone wants to do (and I can never pick them) so if the first one you ask for is taken then I can allocate another from your list if I have a list.

Any queries you might have, please don’t hesitate to contact via the AHQ email as per usual with any queries and we will assist you from there.  We may not know the answer, but it will be our pleasure to research and get back to you.

A reminder, when you are ready to post the quilt or laundry bag you’ve created, please use the PMKeyS number given to you in any correspondence with the admin team.  This helps the volunteer admin team keep a track of what’s been sent etc.  The PMKeyS number is included in the address details we supply for your recipient e.g.  the 7-digit number in bold below.

CPL Wanda Quilt 8765432

TG 3456

AFPO XX

ADF

Sydney NSW 2890

Also, please use the Aussie Heroes PO Box address on your parcel in the event the parcel is Returned to Sender –  the PO Box is a safe place in the event of  any mishaps with postage.

Aussie Hero Quilts (and Laundry Bags)

PO Box 248

Cherrybrook NSW 2126

Don’t forget to take a photo of your completed quilt or laundry bag to email to AHQ with the name and PMKeyS of the recipient and we can include in the Weekly Dispatches blog and add to the tally of quilts and laundry bags sent off to the troops.  I personally love viewing the photos of those projects dispatched – so inspiring.

If you are using a AHQ supplied prepaid satchel please kindly use the AHQ address for the return address– also for your own packaging – if a parcel is Returned to Sender it is likely we can expedite its journey to the recipient from Sydney.

Please also please hold on to the Tracking number (the pink sticker that you should remove before posting – we’ve experienced mail delays lately (haven’t we all?) and having the Tracking number is very reassuring to keep an eye on the parcel’s progress in arriving at its destination.

Don’t forget, if you look at today’s Request List and need help choosing, please feel free to get in touch to discuss, we will be ready to reply and offer guidance by email. Our goal is to help you find a request that you will be comfortable with doing. If you need a crest etc we may be able to post embroideries / printed fabric images or email some of these to you.

Helpful info may be gleaned here from Information For Those That Sew

I look forward to seeing the photos of completed quilts and LBs when they are ready to post off.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag.

For example….

Marvel Theme. Ironman M LB 1

This is really important to make sure that neither you nor I copy the wrong number which could lead to me giving you the wrong details for specific request. If you find it hard to copy and paste, please copy or write the line out as above as:

Marvel Theme. Ironman   M   LB   1

Decoding The Columns:

The first column is the theme or preferences requested.

The second column indicates the gender of the recipient:

F = female

M = male

The third column is as follows:

B = both quilt and laundry bag (feel free to nominate to JUST do the laundry bag if you wish)

Q = just a quilt

LB = just a laundry bag

The fourth column is the number of the request.

Please let the Admin crew know if you have any other questions….Just email contactus@aussieheroquilts.org.au

Looking forward to seeing what you want to make this week. Happy stitching!

Cheers,

Jan-Maree
