Weekly Dispatches 24 August 18

24 August 2018

Well what a week.   HMAS Canberra were very pleased to see us with the 400 laundry bags on Monday, which grew to 500 laundry bags once we included the Embarked Force.  Just so you know…. you can fit 50 laundry bags in one of those blue Ikea bags… so we took eight into HMAS Canberra.  Add to that the 120 plus quilts and laundry bags we presented to the Invictus competitors and staff last week and that is a whole lot of Ikea bags no longer taking up space in my house! 🙂

We have had a laundry bag drive in the last couple of weeks as you will see from all the pictures below.  Well done everyone! Now it is time to get back to a few more personalised ones so that our deployed folks don’t miss out. 

Happy stitching everyone and happy browsing!

So far for 2018 we have sent off 974 quilts
Bringing our total since we started to over 9755 quilts

So far for 2018 we have sent off 2058 laundry bags
Bringing our total since we started to over 18,654 laundry bags
