Aussie Hero Quilts Requests 12 February 2018


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.

INVICTUS Games

On 18 September 2017 I announced that we would be making quilts and laundry bags for the members of the 2018 Invictus Games team.  I know that this is well in advance of the Games but there is a lot of planning to do if we are to achieve completion of 75 or so quilts and laundry bags in time for the Games in October.   Being a voluntary organisation, we work slower than most businesses and given that I am moving house around the time that the team is announced the more preparation the better.  I have had a large number of people contact me and express their willingness to be involved.  If you would like to put your name down to make a quilt or laundry bag please email me and indicate your preference. Details will not be announced until closer to time but more information will be passed on as it becomes available.

Priority items

No’s 2A and 2B are required to be in the mail no later than then end of February.  Let’s see what we can do.  If need be we will post these to the recipients at home but it is always better if they receive their quilts whilst on deployment.

Post by Date

The post by date for ALL items other than the priority requests on this list is 19 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.
