Hi All
We have a few more new people this week (welcome!) so I will include this information again just for them.   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.
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
Last week we achieved promises for all the COVID 19 LBs we had been asked for. I have just received a new request.  A number of you said you were happy to sew more laundry bags for COVID Assist.  If you are still interested to help, that would be wonderful; please respond via email as per usual.  Again postage for these bags won’t be free; the most economic way is using a pre-paid satchel. You can fit 5-6 in a 3KG satchel or 12 in a 5KG satchel.  As always we need the bags to be MASCULINE or GENDER NEUTRAL because we always end up with more feminine theme ones than we need.
We are getting lovely feedback from recipients of these laundry bags which you can read in our Gratitude Post on Tuesdays.
Priority Quilts
Requests 16 and 17 inclusive are our priority quilts. Number 16 needs to be in the mail by 7 June and Number 17 has to be in the mail by 15 June. 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 22 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
