 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 >  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    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
