This blog is dedicated to encouraging people to make quilts and laundry bags to send to Aussie service men and women currently serving overseas and to express our gratitude for their service. We care about the people - not the politics or the mission.
Our quilts are not works of art, but works of the heart.
When I traveled down to Canberra to attend the Soldier On Ball I stopped off along the way in Berrima to talk to Tamsin from Berrima Patchwork. They have now jumped on board and on the weekend held their first sewing day for Aussie Heroes. They did a fabulous job, finishing 6 quilt tops and creating two more that just need their borders added. It won't be long and they will be quilted and sent off.

Thank-you to all those who attended. The quilts look fabulous!

The next sewing day in Penrith is Sunday the 19th of October. Please let me know if you are interested in coming so I can be prepared for you.
Finally, if you are a blogger and leave a comment which requires a reply from me please make sure you are not a "NO REPLY" Blogger because I have no way of contacting you. Lainey I hope you read this. Please send me an email at friendsofAHQ@gmail.com so I can get back to you with an answer.
