Request List 1 March 2021

Written by ahq_admin

1 March 2021

 Hello,

It looks like the Navy is getting a turn this week with ships heading out on duty and crew to sew laundry bags for.  And we are still sewing laundry bags for the troops on Covid-19 duty.  Again if you can fit in sewing a laundry bag or two that would be marvellous. It looks like these cheery and useful items continue to be in high demand.  We also have a batch of quilts to get a move on – one group of deployed personal are not going to get much love in the way of mail this year so we have a tight time frame for our Priority Quilts this week with post by the end of March. As always I send out a huge hand of thanks and appreciation for the extraordinary effort of each and every Aussie Hero volunteer. What a splendid network of generous-hearted and talented folk.  The quilts and laundry bags you create are amazing – take a bow!

Have a great week!

Cheers for now,

Clarissa

 

Essential info and weekly updates …..

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.  You may find your query is answered by me or one of the admin crew – we are here to support you.  We will be ‘on duty’ in rotation.

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 red below. Also, please use the Aussie Heroes P O 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.

Don’t forget to take a photo of your completed craft, 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 spent quite a while this week checking the photos of recently created quilts and laundry bags – they were stunning!!

as the Return / From address on the reverse and also please hold on to the Tracking number – 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  http://aussieheroquilts.blogspot.com/2019/07/information-post-for-those-that-sew-for.html    I look forward to seeing the photos of completed quilts and LBs when they are ready to post off.

As aforementioned I will respond to your emails when you respond to select a quilt or laundry bag to sew.  But please don’t delay, make your selection, send your email through, say “Hi”  and let me know what you’d like to sew this week.

Wishing everyone a super week of sewing.

Clarissa, Alex, Courtney, Lisa, Kylie, Catherine, Jan-Maree, Chloe and Veronica

PLEASE note the date and let me know if you have any problems getting your quilt/LB away on time.
