28 March 2022 Request List

Written by AHQ

28 March 2022

 Good Morning all 

Hero Quilts 10th Anniversary Dinner Update….

 Have you bought your tickets yet? Have you booked your accommodation yet?  Hopefully this week we should be able to announce the final details for the Friday afternoon activity and the Bus Tour for the Saturday.  I have just come back from a visit to Canberra and I had to opportunity to meet up with two of our speakers for the Friday night and plans are coming together nicely. I promise you it is going to be a great weekend.

On to our requests.  

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

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 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
Sydney NSW 2890


If you are posting your parcel overseas to an AFPO address then 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 

If you are posting to any other address (other than an AFPO address) please feel free to use your own address for the return address.  

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 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 2 May 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

Whilst in Canberra I had the opportunity to present this quilt to the wonderful Chaplain Mark, one of the first chaplains Aussie Heroes ever dealt with and always a staunch supporter of all we do. Mark has been our MC at a couple of our dinners and it was so lovely to surprise him with a personalised quilt to mark the end of his time in fulltime service. Well done to Lynn for the quilt top and Philomena for the quilting!


Cheers, Jan-Maree xx
