Hi All
For our newbies….  If you look at the list and need help choosing please feel free to let me know.  I know it can be overwhelming and I am more than happy to give you some advice and find a request that you will be comfortable with doing.
Everyone else, I hope this finds you all well and continuing to cope with the anxieties and restrictions we are all living with to keep us safe from COVID-19. We are heading in the right direction and if we can just hold the course, trust in our leaders, we will get through this sooner.   
More huge thanks to our ADF members available to be deployed to carry out a myriad of tasks that need to be conducted and we are going to do our bit by letting them know that their services are appreciated.
Operation COVID-19 Assist Laundry Bags
Two weeks ago I called for laundry bags for those ADF members who are part of Operation COVID-19 Assist.   We can’t forget our deployed folks but hopefully we can look after these guys and girls as well.  We have done really well so far but we still need more bags.  We have managed to organise over 580 so far. We need around 120 more in the next few weeks.  You don’t have to do lots but if you can do a couple and get them in the mail in the next week to ten days that would be a huge help.
We are still getting a lot of lovely feedback from sailors on HMAS Toowoomba.  Crew members are commenting that the one thing they are looking forward to is their mail and that is where we are helping them, a lot!  If you are sewing something for HMAS Toowoomba please make sure that your quilt or bag is in the mail no later than this Friday… 15 May and earlier if you can.
Priority Quilts
Requests 4 and 5 inclusive are our priority quilts. They need to be in the mail no later than the end of May. It would be great if you could take one of these ones up this week.  Thank you!
The post by date for all items on this list is 15 June please. If you cannot make that date please let me know.
LET ME REITERATE, 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.
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.
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.
Cheers
Jan-Maree
We still need some 120 bags for our wonderful ADF members who are on duty as part of COVID-19 Assist.  If you would like to jump on board and make some of these bags then please let me know. You will be given an address to post your laundry bag/s to but you will have to cover the cost of postage as postage will not be free. The cheapest way to post will be via pre-paid satchel.  Please advise me how many bags you would like to make so that I can make sure that we send the number of bags requested and no extras. We need to be organised about this. Hope you can help. Thank you so much.
