Request List 18 October 2021

Written by AHQ

18 October 2021

Good morning,   Another week and for those of us who’ve been separated from family and friends we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and reconnect. If you’d like to connect with a Member of our ADF to say thanks for their service by way of creating a quilt and/or laundry bag please EMAIL fr**********@gm***.com and Catherine  or I will be pleased to assist you with the Recipient’s details. Hope to hear from you soon.

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.  If you are keen to sew bags for this group,  please email fr**********@gm***.com for the dispatch address – THANK YOU!!!!

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.

Thanks also go to our wonderful volunteer Embroidery team who create exquisite embroideries of Corps and Service crests….If the Recipient requests  this inclusion we can arrange one to be sent to you for piecing or applique.

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.  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.

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.
