10 August  2020 Request List 

Hello!    I hope that, where ever you are, you are warm, cosy and comfortable, ready to read on. 

Here’s this week’s AHQ Request List and,  again, I never fail to be surprised by the imagination and creativity of those requesting Aussie Hero Quilts and Laundry Bags.  Of course there’s an array of Service themes and a few footy colour requests thrown in too – what will you choose this week?   I hope there’s a  choice on this list that ticks a box for you…..I am looking forward to receiving the emails accepting the interesting themed requests.

If you’ve not sewn an Aussie Hero Quilt before but would like to give one a try here’s the link to the Instructions on the AHQ blog >   Quilt labels maybe handwritten on to fabric with a pigma pen, embroidered if you can manage that or  we do have a wonderful AHQ volunteer who can assist providing these.  Here’s the link to our info on creating  labels

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 perhaps Alex, Catherine, Courtney or Lisa. We will be ‘on duty’ in rotation.  I do wish however to bring to your attention the link to info regarding posting off your laundry bag or quilt  – click here for up-to-date info >
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.  As always there’s an amazing breadth of requests; there’s no doubt about it, our deployed can be incredibly imaginative with their preferences.  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    I look forward to seeing the photos of completed quilts and LBs when they are ready to post off.
It is likely that I will respond to your emails later today when you respond to select a quilt or laundry bag to sew. I am looking forward to connecting with you.  Please say hi!  In the meantime, read on!

Working with Alex, Courtney, Lisa, Kylie, Catherine and Jan-Maree…and the team  of other wonderful  AHQ volunteers.

P.P.S.  Don’t forget to check out AHQ on the Blog, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
