14 March 2022 Request List

Written by AHQ

14 March 2022

 Good Morning all 


Due to problems securing accommodation in the hotel on the weekend of the 8th we have changed the date of the Aussie Hero Quilts 10th Anniversary Dinner to 29th of October.

This is the LAST time we will change the date. 

 We have reserved 60 rooms for the weekend but some of them are already taken so if you want to stay at the same venue as the dinner please get on the phone and
book your accommodation.
If you want the AHQ discount then you need to phone to make your reservation or you need to write the request for a discount in the notes if you make your reservation online.

The most important thing is to get on and make your reservation if you want a room.

 You definitely don’t want to miss out on the best weekend in the calendar. If you have not attended an Aussie Hero Quilts weekend before, you seriously don’t
know what you are missing out on. I am looking forward to seeing you all there.

 Postage to Perth

I have been getting quite a few emails from people who are trying to track their parcels that are being sent to Perth.  Mail to Perth is a bit hit and miss at the moment and there is a very good reason for it.  Did you know that the road and rail line that runs to Perth was cut with massive floods?  As far as I can tell the lines have not yet been repaired and that has caused major delays with freight and mail. Some parcels are being delayed and some are getting through in good time. Australia Post has told some people that their parcel is lost or delayed when it fact it has turned up. Their records do not always seem to be accurate for some reason. Also please remember that just because the mail has arrived in a location does not mean the sailor (soldier or aviator) is there to receive it. They may be on leave, a course or deployed (on flood relief etc).  If you are really concerned please feel free to send me an email.  I obviously can’t email every recipient to see if their parcel has arrived though.

Last week I joined Fran T (LHS) and her mother, Marg B (RHS) via Zoom.  All new to defence chaplains attend a course in Canberra to orient them to defence and all its wonders. We are one of the wonders they learn about and as well as telling them who we are and what we do, we present them with a personalised Laundry Bag to give them a intro to Aussie Heroes. 


On to our requests.  

Once you’ve made your selection of what you’d like to try, do please EMAIL co*******@au**************.au and Catherine or I will be pleased to assist you with your selection. Hope to hear from you soon. 

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 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
TG 3456
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 http://aussieheroquilts.blogspot.com/2019/07/information-post-for-those-that-sew-for.html I look forward to seeing the photos of completed quilts and LBs when they are ready to post off. 


The post by date for all Requests on this list is 18th April 2022 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.     

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 the line out as above.  

Decoding The Columns 

The first column is the theme or preferences requested. 

The second column indicates the gender of the recipient. 

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 

F= female 

M= male 

Please let the Admin crew know if you have any other questions….Just email co*******@au**************.au
