31 October 22 Request List

Written by ahq_admin

31 October 2022

Hey folks,

Well the Aussie Hero Quilts Annual Weekend of Wonderful Experiences is over for another year.  There will be wrap ups and feedback and we will make notes on what we want to change/improve for next year’s events but all in all I am delighted with how the weekend went and have been very please with the feedback I have received so far from both volunteers and recipients.  I think it is safe to say that everyone who travelled from far and wide would say it was more than worth it and I know I am already looking forward to next year’s event…. After a good rest!

A huge thanks to all who worked hard over the weekend and in the weeks and months leading up to the weekend to make it happen.  We could not have done it without you!

How gorgeous are these miniature beds made by our lovely Crystal Clear, assisted by Cath Harvey.  I think we might see these pop up again at future dinners. They are certainly something very special!


Thank you Crystal.

Now back to business. Here are the requests for this week.


We have two priority requests this week which need to be in Darwin before end of November if at all possible.

Request No 1. For a female, quilt only.

The letters “C1”, TSE 106, Navy Ship, Asahi Beer, Corona Beer, Cowboy Hat, Dog-Cocker Spaniel, Crocs the shoes, 9mm pistol. Colours – Black, purple, green, blue

Request No 2. For a male, quilt only.

Tropical With a silhouette of a Navy Patrol Boat, Text “Op Resolute, TSE 106”   We can provide an embroidered patch with the text on it and a silhouette of a patrol boat to use for applique

You will be sent an Express Post satchel for these ones and we will express post any bits and pieces needed as well.

Please email if you are able to help.


The post by date for all Requests on this list is 6 December 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.

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 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

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. IronmanMLB1

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

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
