Request List 25 January 2021

Written by AHQ

25 January 2021

Hello everyone,  Whether I’m at work or taking leave I often think that the ‘working year’ doesn’t truly kick in until after the Australia Day weekend. However there are many who don’t get to enjoy the summer down time, for example our deployed ADF Members. You, the AHQ volunteers have also been hard ‘at work’ creating an amazing array of embroideries, quilts and laundry bags to send off to ADF troops in remote locations – thank you each and every one of you for contributing in this way. It’s not ‘Work’ but you are sure industrious!!!

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? 

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,


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.

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
