28 September 2020 Request List
Good morning and a late start today but don’t let that delay your time to consider and select a request to create for a deployed Aussie serving away from home. As always the Request List offers up so much. The thoughts and choices of the requests lead one to be enveloped in the real need for colour, comfort and community wherever one is – and which in these uncertain times of Covid-19, border closure and lockdown in many parts of our beautiful country we can all empathise with. So, check out your fabric stash, browse some websites and take your pick from today’s list. Your efforts are so much appreciated – the gratitude posts speak volumes for the value of your work. I do enjoy publishing this list, from receiving in the incoming emails from recipients to sending you, the amazing volunteers, the details of your project. I hope there’s a choice on this list that you’d like to sew…..I am looking forward to receiving your emails. Have a lovely day.
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 > http://aussieheroquilts.blogspot.com/p/posting-information.html. If you have a quilt underway but are concerned you may not complete it by the ‘post by’ date, please let me know; an adjustment may be available. 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.
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. 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.
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” J and let me know what you’d like to sew this week.
I am looking forward to connecting with you.
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
Requests 9 – 19 are our priority items this week and need to be in the mail by 20 October or even earlier if you can manage – thank you!!! Can you help with these?
You may be aware of postal delays holding up timely delivery of mail. Despite that problem, the post by date for all items on this list is 1 November please or earlier. If you cannot make that date, please let me know. And a special thanks goes to those this past week who’ve let me know in good time that they are delayed in dispatching their creation. A warm ‘Get well’ wish goes to those recovering from surgery and / or illness too.
PLEASE note the date and let me know if you have any problems getting your quilt/LB away on time. 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.
