Request List 4 October 2021

Written by AHQ

4 October 2021

Good morning, Long weekend relaxation for some of us….what will you be enjoying today?  If some design and stitching is your thing on today’s schedule then do check out today’s list.  I am sure there’s just about something for everyone today! Is there a Request you can create? Let me know – We’d love to hear from you.  

Did you 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!

Laundry Bags for the Covid troops are still hugely appreciated and additionally we have an army team abroad who we also hope to supply laundry bags to.  If you are keen to sew bags for these  groups,  please email 
fr**********@gm***.com for the dispatch addresses – 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.

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.

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. Please also save the record of the Tracking Number  – mail is getting through but often quite delayed. 

 Aussie Hero Quilts (and Laundry Bags)

PO Box 248

Cherrybrook  NSW 2126

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, Ben, Pamela, Chloe and Veronica

PRIORITY  Requests  –  Quilts 25-37  are on the must get done list this week. Can you help?  – I’d love your help getting these on their way to forever homes?  We need to have these quilts in the mail by 21 October – thank you!!!

I realise Covid lockdowns are a spanner in the sewing machine!!  And again we must expect mail delays. 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.  There are a few unloved requests that have been lingering  – if you can help with one of these please email me …..mostly early numbers on the list.
