Request List 23 May 2022

Written by ahq_admin

23 May 2022

Woo hoo! Good morning all,

I am a little excited today and I am launching a special project this week and it really is a very special one. We are going to play a part in honouring some very special ADF members and I am just so pleased we are able to take part. There are only limited numbers of quilts and laundry bags required for this project so it will be a case of first in best dressed. Laundry bags are on the request list for today and quilts will go on the request list next week. Please note, you must have sewn for us in the last 12 months at least, to be accepted for one of these very special requests.

The request list is a nice healthy size this week. Lots of great projects for you to choose from. Happy hunting.

10th Anniversary Dinner.

Have you bought your tickets for the events on the weekend? I have just been to Canberra and had a meeting with Greg to finalise all the little details to make sure that our other events over the weekend, apart from the dinner, are wonderful. I am so looking forward to meeting lots of our new volunteers and catching up with those I already know.

Tickets available here from Trybooking. https://www.trybooking.com/events/798247/sessions

Here are the requests for this week.

Once you’ve made your selection of what you’d like to try, do please EMAIL and Catherine or I will be pleased to assist you with your selection. Hope to hear from you soon. 

Thank you!  

Priority Requests

The first nine requests on the list have been there for a while so it would be awesome if you could take one of those on please. Like all the rest of the requests on the list they must be in the mail by 27 June but it would be really awesome if they could go a little earlier. Still, let’s get these requests on the go as these recipients have been waiting a while.

POST BY DATE

The post by date for all Requests on this list is 27 June 2022  please, or earlier if you can manage this.  If you cannot make that date, please let me know. Do reach out if you have any timing issues and we’ll resolve one way or the other. 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, thank you.    

The Rest of our Requests.

When selecting a request, remember, you do not have to include everything they have asked for. Footy quilts do not need to have the logo or even the team’s name. Using the team colours is all that is required. Simple is perfectly acceptable. A number of these requests have given you favourite colours as well as footy teams or other hobbies and interests. It is fine to make a quilt using their favourite colours and include only one of their interests. It is fine to keep it simple. 

If there is more than one request on this list that you would be happy to do I suggest that you send me a list of requests and tell me how many you want to be allocated….i.e. one of the following please…. There are always a few requests that everyone wants to do (and I can never pick them) so if the first one you ask for is taken then I can allocate another from your list if I have a list. 

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.   

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 bold below. 

CPL Wanda Quilt 8765432 

TG 3456 

AFPO XX 

ADF 

Sydney NSW 2890

Also, please use the Aussie Heroes PO 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. 

Aussie Hero Quilts (and Laundry Bags) 

PO Box 248,

Cherrybrook, NSW 2126 

 Don’t forget to take a photo of your completed quilt or laundry bag to email to AHQ with the name and PMKEYS of the recipient and we can include in the Weekly Dispatches blog and 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 for the return 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.

Please also please hold on to the Tracking number (the pink sticker that you should remove before posting – 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. 

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 above.  

Decoding The Columns 

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 the Admin crew know if you have any other questions….Just email

Looking forward to seeing what you want to make this week. Happy stitching! 

Cheers,
