Request List 22 February 2021

Written by ahq_admin

22 February 2021

Hello,

Hello, Who sewed laundry bags last week? Was it the first time? How did you go? I’d love to hear back.  Now that we have 30000 under our belt I think we must be getting pretty good at them. Likewise with the works of heart Aussie Hero Quilts – each week I just love to see the finished creations heading off aboard, somewhere in Australia or to the high seas.  They are amazing…..colourful, unique and every stitch sewn with love.  As the mother of a son who’s received one when deployed I can testify to the precious nature of the special moment receiving an unanticipated pack in the mail with the surprise gift from a caring stranger. Thank you to you all.  So here’s this week’s list and I look forward to receiving your emails to select a project. So exciting to think of this next batch of quilts heading off to make someone’s day a bit brighter.

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.

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.
