I wanted to share this lovely letter that we received in regard to the quilts and laundry bags we made for our Aussie Invictus Team.
In case you can’t read it, here is a transcription.
On behalf of the Australian Defence Force, I would like to take the opportunity to express our thanks for your support of Team Australia at the recent Invictus Games. The Invictus Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women.
Thank you to you and all your members for the very thoughtful and creative laundry bags and quilts that our competitors and staff were fortunate to receive. The presentation of the laundry bags to our competitors at our Team Dinner, prior to departure, certainly added to the excitement! To then receive a quilt upon return was a lovely way to bookend the event.
On behalf of all of the bag and quilt recipients, thank you to you and to all of the Aussie Hero Quilt members who put so much care and effort into making something so special for our competitors and staff.
Beautiful gifts from exceptional people in Aussie Hero Quilts.

Til next time, keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
