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.
CMDR Phillip Henry, Commanding Officer of HMAS Darwin, has extended an invitation to all those who made a quilt or laundry bag for one of his crew members to attend the wharf when their fine ship arrives home to Sydney next month.
If you are interested in being there to welcome home your recipients and our ship-load of heroes please can you email me with your details.
I need full names of those attending and car registrations please.
Although you are asked to give your rego, be warned that parking is at a premium so if you are able to arrive via public transport you might find that easier.
Please email the details to me at friendsofAHQ@gmail.com and most important....please make the subject line read WELCOMING HMAS DARWIN to make it easier for me. ..... ALSO... if you volunteered to make a quilt/laundry bag for HMAS Perth can you please email me to let me know as I have lost those records and need to re-create them so that noone misses out and noone gets a second quilt or bag.
Still working on reconstructing our records and the request list. Please, please, please pay attention to the blog for updates and requests for info to make my job much easier.
Big thanks to the ladies who came today to help me unpack all my salvaged kitchen-ware and dinner-ware..... I think may have just a bit too much.
Till next time...... keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
