Hi All
*** see special note at the bottom…
Hello there all you awesome volunteers.  What you are going to see today is a request list that has been significantly altered to cope with the restrictions that COVID-19 has placed on us.
I know many of us are in one form of lockdown or another, whilst others have to go to work in trying conditions, but regardless Aussie Heroes is going to continue in whatever form we can. Let me reiterate though, I DO NOT WANT TO ENCOURAGE ANYONE TO TAKE ANY UNNECESSARY RISKS WHATSOEVER TO CONTINUE SEWING FOR US. I DON’T WANT THAT AND THE MEN AND WOMEN WE SEEK TO SERVE DO NOT WANT THAT.
I think we all need to keep busy. We need to focus on what we CAN DO and not what we can’t.  Doing something positive is good for your mental health.  It is also good for our sailors, soldiers, airmen and airwomen to know that we are continuing to support them.
The time has come to Sew from your stash…
Laundry bags –
If you want to make a laundry bag please let me know.  Laundry bags now just need to have the member’s initials on them.  Where someone wants a quilt and a bag I have left the LBs on the list in case someone wants to make a matching set.  If the member only needs a laundry bag they are not shown on the request list as it would have become boring reading “Laundry bag with initials, crest optional”.  If you want to make a laundry bag please email me.  The crests mean a lot to the recipients so if you are happy for me to send you a crest to include please let me know and I will have one embroidered and sent to you if I can’t send one from here. I hope that makes sense.
Quilts –
I have dramatically simplified most of the requests in order to enable more volunteers to be able to sew along with us. Most requests simply specify a simple theme, a colour combination or they request the addition of a crest with some text included beneath the crest.
Your quilts can be simple squares or strips but please do not resort to quilting one large piece of fabric as a topper. If there is one thing we will mostly have in abundance over the next few weeks it is going to be time, so blocks and strips or other pieced designs are the order of the day please.
If you still want to make more personal quilts please just let me know. I am basically running two request lists, the personalised requests and the simple requests.  I can email you the personalised request if you ask for it.
The post by date for all items on this list is 4 May please. If you cannot make that date please let me know.
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.
IF YOU CANNOT GET TO THE POST OFFICE
If you cannot get to the Post Office and do not have someone who can go for you, then I still encourage you to keep sewing.  You never know, there may be someone in your area who can pick up your mail from your front door (no contact) and deliver it to the PO for you. We can at least try that.  LET ME KNOW
FOR ANY NEW VOLUNTEERS
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 follows…  
The first column is the theme or preferences requested.
The second column indicates the gender of the recipient.
The third column is as follows.
B=both quilt and laundry bag (feel free to nominate to JUST do the laundry bag if you wish)
Q= just a quilt
LB = just a laundry bag
F= female
M= male
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
*** Special note:
What the world is going through at the moment is something extraordinary.  To be deploying at a time like this is also extraordinary! I want to recognise the fact that we are making quilts and bags in this time in history and I want the recipients to receive a quilt that includes recognition of this time as well.  They often request the deployment details so that the quilt or bag recognises the time they deployed. I don’t think this is any different.  I am working on coming up with a patch we can add to our quilts and bags. More information on this when I can.
Much love and huge big hugs everyone!!!
