Request List 22 March 2021

Written by ahq_admin

22 March 2021

Good morning,

As I have written before I am based in Sydney. It’s wet! wet! wet! here and my garden is inundated. Just a small taste however of what’s happening elsewhere with transport hubs and towns flooded and folk isolated.  Sending our warmest good wishes to all those affected, for certain shelter and protection from current conditions, flooding or flooding to come and for the best of health and safety during this time.

For those of us lucky to have a dry work space, our list is not long this week. We have been pre-warned and are waiting on receipt of large lists from groups and I am hoping I can present those projects for you next week. Random laundry bags remain in demand for several locations and can be posted to the AHQ PO Box address.

If you do spot a quilt request this week that suits your stash, brilliant! Let me or Catherine know and we’ll send you the details – we look forward to “hearing” from you. For others who can sew a laundry bag or two, our thanks go to you also. 

Have a great week everyone and for those receiving record rainfalls, stay safe and dry.

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 personally love viewing the photos of those projects dispatched – so inspiring.

If you are using a AHQ supplied prepaid satchel please kindly use the AHQ address – also for your own packaging – if a parcel is Returned to Sender it is likely we can expedite its journey to the recipient from Sydney.

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.
