Request List 1 February 2021

Written by AHQ

1 February 2021

Hello, Here we are again with another week’s Request List – I’ll be ready and waiting to receive your emails. What will you select to create?  So many lovely themes to think about the design potential …..I am always so amazed at the creativity and outcomes. Likewise the traditional block quilts have such appeal and look terrific with an appliqué or embroidered crest.  My sewing machine is in for service this week so I’ll just have to enjoy virtual stitching J

A couple of house-keeping reminders ……to please double check any text that you might be appliquéing or embroidering – please query with me an unusual name that you might think is a typo.  Likewise PMKeyS have 7 digits but some service numbers have fewer – don’t hesitate to ask me to check for you.

Cheers for now and have a super sewing week,


Essential info and weekly updates …..

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.  You may find your query is answered by me or perhaps Alex, Catherine, Courtney or Lisa. We will be ‘on duty’ in rotation. 

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 red below. Also, please use the Aussie Heroes P O 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.

 as the Return / From address on the reverse and also please hold on to the Tracking number – 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.

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    I look forward to seeing the photos of completed quilts and LBs when they are ready to post off.

As aforementioned I will respond to your emails when you respond to select a quilt or laundry bag to sew.  But please don’t delay, make your selection, send your email through, say “Hi”  and let me know what you’d like to sew this week.

Wishing everyone a super week of sewing.
