Request List 26 April 2021

Written by ahq_admin

26 April 2021

 

Good morning everyone,

Over the weekend we commemorated Kapyong Day and ANZAC Day. Both days are incredibly significant in our history and are just two reminders we are privileged to be part of and supporting a defence force that has always punched well above its weight and achieved far beyond all expectations. Likewise the wonderful Aussie Hero Quilt volunteers do this week in, week out!  Thank you!!!  I do however send our warmest good wishes for a speedy and complete recovery to those of our volunteer team currently unwell or in rehab from surgery or accident and I look forward to hearing how you are getting on.  For those at their sewing machines this week Catherine and I are looking forward to supporting you with details of a Request to create. 

Cheers and happy stitching,

Clarissa

 p.s.

Regarding queries whether we can use the RAAF centenary logo, unfortunately NO, we DO NOT have permission to use it ….you will see there’s several requests for this.

Additionally, we’ve had a lot of enquiries from our wonderful AHQ volunteers regarding a newish aviation theme fabric range. Regrettably these fabrics do not represent the actual crests and roundels of the Royal Australian Air Force. The sky and aircraft are OK. We actually use all sorts of aircraft fabrics, often American in lots of cases with an effort not to use the US flag though if featured on the fabric.

So, the answer to all the queries is – these fabrics are usable but please note the crest and roundel are not correct for the RAAF and would likely devalue the sentiment of the quilt or laundry bag if featured.

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.
