7 February 2022 Request List

Written by ahq_admin

7 February 2022

Good morning all

The Aussie Hero Quilts Anniversary Weekend has been postponed to 7,8,9 October.  Don’t forget to change your accommodation bookings if need be.

HMAS Adelaide continues to support on OpTongaAssist.  After successfully delivering 88 tonnes of supplies to Tonga, the crew have responded to a request from the Government of Tonga for additional air and sea reconnaissance.

Capability assigned to HMAS Adelaide III includes three Army CH-47F Chinook helicopters from which operate from the flight deck.

There are still plenty of HMAS Adelaide requests on our list if you would like to do one.

**********************************************************************************

Now on to our requests.

Once you’ve made your selection of what you’d like to try, do please EMAIL and Catherine or I will be pleased to assist you with your selection. Hope to hear from you soon.

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’s 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.

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. 

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 bold below.

CPL Wanda Quilt 8765432
TG 3456
AFPO XX
ADF
Sydney NSW 2890

Also, please use the Aussie Heroes PO 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.

Aussie Hero Quilts (and Laundry Bags)
PO Box 248, Cherrybrook, NSW 2126

Don’t forget to take a photo of your completed quilt or laundry bag to 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 for the return 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 please hold on to the Tracking number (the pink sticker that you should remove before posting – 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 https://aussieheroquilts.org.au/information-for-sewers/ I look forward to seeing the photos of completed quilts and LBs when they are ready to post off.

POST BY DATE

The post by date for all Requests on this list is 14 March 2022  please, or earlier if you can manage this.  If you cannot make that date, please let me know.   Do reach out if you have any timing issues and we’ll resolve one way or the other. 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.    

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag.

For example….

Marvel Theme. Ironman   M       LB      1

This is really important to make sure that neither you nor I copy the wrong number which could lead to me giving you the wrong details for specific request.  If you find it hard to copy and paste, please copy the line out as above.

Decoding The Columns
