Request List 03 January 2022

Good morning and hello everyone,

Sending our warmest good wishes to you all for a very happy and healthy New Year

Another week of Requests and interesting projects to tackle.

Do please EMAIL and Catherine  or I will be pleased to assist you with your selection. Hope to hear from you soon.

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’s 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.

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.




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.  

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. 
Aussie Hero Quilts (and Laundry Bags)
PO Box 248, Cherrybrook,
NSW 2126
CPL Wanda Quilt 8765432
TG 3456
Sydney NSW 2890

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.   I have an Aus Post app on my phone and, scanning the QR code on each satchel using the smart phone camera, all I have to do is type in the name of the recipient and I can track the parcel via my phone.

 Aussie Hero Quilts (and Laundry Bags)
PO Box 248
Cherrybrook  NSW 2126
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    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.
Clarissa, Alex, Courtney, Lisa, Kylie, Catherine, Jan-Maree, Pamela and Ben.
