Aussie Hero Quilts Request List 5 February 2018 - go ahead, make someone's day.. choose a quilt or laundry bag to make....

Hi all

IF YOU ARE NEW TO THE REQUEST LIST.. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST FOR HELPFUL INFO… ESSENTIAL IF YOU ARE NOT USED TO SEWING FOR US.

Laundry Bags

For those of you who like to make random laundry bags it is time to look at sending some more the Malaysia and we got lots of promises last week but I still need more pretty please. I normally send about 12-140 to our Rifle Company at RMAF Base Butterworth every three months.   I have to get a bit ahead of myself this time as I will be moving house in three month’s time. So if you would like to make some random, gender neutral laundry bags to go to Malaysia please let me know. It is important that you understand that to do this you will need to cover the cost of postage to from your location to Sydney and you will need to complete a large customs form.  Your postie will be able to tell you how much postage is depending on how any bags you want to send. Alternately if you are in Sydney you can drop them in to me and I can send them from here. If you are interested please let me know.

Priority items

No’s 2-7 are all required to be in the mail no later than then end of February.  Let’s see what we can do.

Post by Date

The post by date for ALL items other than the priority requests on this list is 12 March 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.
  
If you don’t understand what people are asking for or where to get some of the bits and pieces then please ask me but the following might also be helpful.

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

Rising Sun, RAAF Crest, Navy Crest, Coat of Arms, HMAS Warramunga crest and other badges – ask me about them, I can often send you some to include if your request needs them.

I have Afghanistan Flags I can send you… other flags are either easy to piece or can be printed… ask me.

If they want some text and it is too much for you to applique I can get it embroidered and sent to you 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.

We still need masculine or gender neutral laundry bags to be sent to our troops in Malaysia.  I am working ahead as I am due to move home when the next lot of bags are due so I would like to get the bags over there sooner than later as I will not have time to coordinate closer to time.  If you would like to post to Malaysia that would be great. You need to pay the cost of postage from your location to Sydney and your parcel needs a customs form on it.  If you are interested please let me know.  Cheers Jan-Maree
