Request List 11 October 2021

Good morning, Here's today's list - is there a Work of the Heart project you'd like to sew? Let us know  - Catherine and I will assist with sending you the details of the recipient  and the request- and we love to e-chat too :). Drop us a line and say hello.  We look forward to this week's requests transforming from email to fabric 'he'art, stitched with love quilts and laundry bags. 

Did you check out the details for next year’s 10th Anniversary Thank You Dinner? It will be an  awesome time of Aussie Hero quilting fun and enjoyment.  Hotel and Event tickets may be secured via the Home Page of the AHQ blog site.  BOOK NOW!!! Every volunteer welcome to attend - this weekend is for you!

Laundry Bags for the Covid troops are still hugely appreciated and additionally we have an army team abroad who we also hope to supply laundry bags to.  If you are keen to sew bags for these two groups,  please email 
friendsofAHQ@gmail.com for the dispatch addresses - THANK YOU!!!!

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 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.

Thanks also go to our wonderful volunteer Embroidery team who create exquisite embroideries of Corps and Service crests….If the Recipient requests  this inclusion we can arrange one to be sent to you for piecing or applique.

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.

Cheers for now,

Clarissa and Catherine

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.
