Written by AHQ

15 February 2021


Good morning, another week and another project to sew. Not sew(sp) many Requests on this week’s list but pleased be advised this will change…..we have a few items in the pipeline about to spring on us so do watch this space.  If you have some time this week but are without a quilt project to sew, please consider sewing a laundry bag for those on Covid 19 deployment (Request 0 on the list). This is still a mammoth task for the ADF and appears to be ongoing for some time. If you’ve not sewn a laundry bag before, but are interested, head to the AHQ blog for instructions….link here personally love sewing laundry bags and will cheer you on if you need support.

Have a great week!

Cheers for now,



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 one of the admin crew – we are here to support you.  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.

Don’t forget to take a photo of your completed craft, email to AHQ with the name and PMKeyS of the recipient and we can include in the Weekly Dispatches blog and also add to the tally of quilts and laundry bags sent off to the troops.  I spent quite a while this week checking the photos of recently created quilts and laundry bags – they were stunning!!

 Aussie Hero Quilts (and Laundry Bags)

PO Box 248

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.

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    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.

Clarissa, Alex, Courtney, Lisa, Kylie, Catherine, Jan-Maree, Chloe and Veronica

PRIORITY  QUILTS – Quilts 1-18 are in locations where the mail is pretty slow – let’s get some goodness on the road with an Aussie Hero Quilt. If you can, it would be great to have these quilts in the mail by 15 March or even earlier – thank you!!!

The post by date for all other Requests on this list is 22 March 2021  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. PLEASE note the date and let me know if you have any problems getting your quilt/LB away on time. 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….
