Requests 14 Nov 16

UPDATED 14 NOV 1930 HOURS (730PM)

Hi all

NOTE – if  you receive this via email DO NOT try to reply to me via email. You need to use friendsofAHQ@gmail.com

Priority Quilts
Numbers 1- 23  need to have their quilts in the mail by the end of December so if you could please check those requests out first and if possible take one of those to help us keep ahead of the game that would be awesome.  

Post By Date
The post by date for the rest of the requests in this week’s list 19 December.  PLEASE note the date and let me know if you have any problems getting your quilt/LB away on time. In fact, if you are going to be late posting it please let me know BEFORE you post it.  Also, if this time frame is too tight for you, there are options, just email me to discuss. 

Laundry Bags
There aren’t a lot of laundry bags on the list at the moment and I do not need a lot of boxes of random laundry bags right now. I need time to email all my contacts and see who will accept boxes to distribute, this varies depending on several factors. I won’t have time to send all those email til I get back from Wagga so probably next week. If you would like to make random laundry bags and are happy to send them to me then I have plenty of very deserving units/regiments to pass them to.  You would have to be happy to post them at your cost though.  Just an option for anyone who is interested. 

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag.  This is really important to make sure that neither you nor I copy the wrong number which could lead to me giving you the wrong details for specific request.

B=both quilt and laundry bag (feel free to nominate to JUST do the laundry bag if you wish)
Q= just a quilt
LB = just a laundry bag

Requests in pink are for girls.

NOTE

Australian National Flag - you can buy panels at Spotlight – ask for them if you can’t find them.

United Nations Flag – I have and can send to you.

Rising Sun and other badges – ask me about them.

If they want some text and it is too much for you to applique I can get it embroidered and sent to you if you like to be sewn on the quilt or sewn into it.

Please think about what the request involves before you take it on. Google, ask questions, email me, make sure you can complete it to your satisfaction before you commit to it if possible please.

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…. ie 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.

A quick note… even if you check the request list every week, please take the time to skim over this preamble.  I edit it to make it relevant every week and I know that many of you are not reading it by the questions I am being asked. It takes you just a minute or two to scan it but takes me considerably longer to read and answer the emails I receive ….. please give me a hand in this. Your assistance is appreciated.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers and happy stitching!
