What a wonderful year for the Aussie Hero Quilts and Laundry Bags.
I hope that your Christmas was lovely and that you have got over your food coma’s, because it will shortly be New Year’s Eve. I trust that you will all have a grand welcome to 2018.
To all deployed defence personnel, who are away from your families for New Year’s Eve, I trust that you will have time to relax and enjoy the company of your comrades. We look forward to your safe return and we thank you for your service, especially at this time of the year.
A BIG Thank you to all the sewing people.
See you “Round like a Rissole” in 2018
