Aussie Hero Requests 17 April 2017

Hi all

NOTE – if you are checking the request list from the blog and if you receive the blog via email DO NOT try to reply to me via that email.  It will not work. You need to use friendsofAHQ@gmail.com

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, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag.  
For example….

Marvel Theme. Ironman
M
LB
1


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.  If you find it hard to copy and paste please copy the line out as follows…   Marvel Theme. Ironman  M  LB  1

Decoding Column three

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


Extra Stars – Maroon or Army Green please ….

Not sure if any of you are making the Maroon and Green stars but I have not had much feedback about them.  If you are making some then send them on in when you are ready otherwise we will have a break for a couple of weeks as ANZAC Day is coming up and I am planning a trip to Canberra as well.

Post By Date

The post by date for all items on this request list is 22 May please.

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.

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.
  
NOTE- please read this bit…. It might make some of the request easier for you…
Australian National Flag - you can buy panels at Spotlight – ask for them if you can’t find them.
Rising Sun and other badges – ask me about them, I can often send you some to include if your request needs 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.
I can help you with football colours and logos of teams etc. Just ask me. Most of the logos are simple or you can just add team names if you want to … team colours are enough also.
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.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers and happy stitching!

UPDATE ON THE CENTENARY of ANZAC QUILT 

It would appear that our Centenary of ANZAC quilt is in a rather obscure and hard to find location in the Spirit of the ANZACs display. This quilt was presented to the Australian War Memorial after becoming the only quilt to do a tour of the bases in the Middle East, including flights in a wedgetail and hornet, a mission on board HMAS Success and touring AMAB, Kandahar and Kabul.
More than 90 people contributed to the construction of this quilt and there is a lot of meaning in all the elements included in it. After this quilt completed its tour the number of requests for ANZAC themed quilts rose significantly.
The quilt was made to remember those that have gone before whilst recognising the service of those who have served since and continue to serve today.
This may be your last chance to see the quilt before it goes into storage at the Australian War Memorial.
This is how I have been told you will find it....
As you exit and hand in your self guided audio, if you turn sharp right around and look to your right in front of you you will see it.  Hope that makes sense. If in doubt just ask for the Centenary of ANZAC quilt. 
Post a photo of yourself with the quilt in the comments if you get to see it.
JMxx
