Request List 15 November 2021

Written by AHQ

15 November 2021


Monday 15 November  2021

Good morning,  I am writing this week’s list from snowy Thredbo in the Snowy Mountains National Park. Here for two weeks’ bushwalking, we are indoors today due to gale force winds and intermittent snowstorms. So where better to be than in front of the fire and writing up this week’s Request List!

This week’s offering is a little shorter than usual due to variation in deployment dates but we have more coming through in the pipeline. Watch this space! That said with Christmas coming up and family and other activities possibly stealing into one’s sewing time it’s probably a good thing that we are not inundated. We do have some folk abroad and away from family and home over Christmas so I am hoping we can get a good number of requests completed and shipped off to grateful recipients.  Your help, as always, hugely valued!!!

Do please EMAIL fr**********@gm***.com and Catherine  or I will be pleased to assist you with the selected project details from this week’s list. Hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you!

Mail is still delayed  so I ask those who’ve used a Aus Post pre-paid satchel for posting off a quilt or L’bag, could kindly please check  the Aus Post tracker to keep an eye on your parcel and determine  if the parcel has been delivered. If not,  we have the opportunity to request Aus Post follow up the whereabouts of the item…but only if the tracking number (see the pink detachable sticker on the satchels) has been kept.

To that end, please always keep the pink tracking sticker and ask the Post Office to scan the parcel’s details when it is dropped  it off; please also request a printed tracking receipt. 

I have an Aus Post app on my phone and, scanning the QR code on each satchel using the smart phone camera, all I have to do is type in the name of the recipient and I can track the parcel via my phone.

I’ve love to hear the outcome of these checks and share success tips.  If tracking  assistance needed to chase up the whereabouts of any missing item please let us know or check in with your post office.

THANK YOU DINNER 2022 – I am looking forward to meeting everyone…..

Don’t forget to check out the details for next year’s 10th Anniversary Thank You Dinner?  It will be an  awesome time of Aussie Hero quilting fun and enjoyment.  
Hotel and Event tickets may be secured via the Home Page of the AHQ blog site.  BOOK NOW!!! Every volunteer welcome to attend – this weekend is for you!

Do you like to sew Laundry Bags?  We are supporting  an army team abroad by way of supplying laundry bags to.  If you are keen to sew bags for this group,  please email fr**********@gm***.com for the dispatch addresses – THANK YOU!!!!   Random laundry bags also useful and can be posted to AHQ PO Box 248 Cherrybrook NSW 2148, thank you. 

Laundry bag sewing tips

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 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.

Cheers for now,
Clarissa and Catherine

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.  

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 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 – 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.

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.
