21  December  2020 Request List 

Just a few more ‘sleeps’ ‘til Christmas and I’m still busy sewing, just getting a few last minute items completed for grandchildren and others.  Looking at today’s Requests though I know I’ll be tempted to select one or two items…there’s so much variety it will be hard to choose but I know I’ll enjoy the projects.

If you would like to take on an Aussie Hero quilt or laundry bag this week to design and create, please READ ON!   And don’t hesitate to get back to me ASAP with your choice.  I’ll be sending virtual tinsel, sparkle  and Christmas Cheer with every  email of reply 😀. 

To all of us around our beautiful nation who are anxious about or affected by the current Covid 19 cluster and cautionary measures, hang in there, keep in touch with friends and family and take time this week leading up to Christmas to reflect and know that you are valued, that as an Aussie Hero volunteer you are a treasure, giving rather than receiving by way of sewing for our Aussie service men and women. I salute you!

Sending all the Aussie Heroes family my warmest good wishes for a very blessed Christmas and all the best for the New Year.



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.  I do wish however to bring to your attention the link to info regarding posting off your laundry bag or quilt  – click here for up-to-date info >  If you have a quilt underway but are concerned you may not complete it by the ‘post by’ date, please let me know;  an adjustment may be available.

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 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.
