Requests from Op Kudu (training Ukraine soldiers in Europe), the Sinai and HMAS Sydney as well as others on the list this week. Lots of interesting themes being requested too. The Op Kudu logo is requested a bit this week. If you are not sure what is being asked for please just ask me and I will help you out.
Now, here is the request list for this week. Happy hunting. I hope you can find something that tickles your fancy.
POST BY DATE
The post by date for all Requests on this list is 26 June 2023 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.
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
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.
