Weekly Dispatches 31st August 2018


Hi Everyone!
Well it is the last day of winter and I am hoping that all the sewing has you a great mood to head into Spring!  It is Father's Day here in Australia this Sunday, so spare a thought for the Fathers who are separated from their kids and the kids who will miss seeing the Fathers on this special day that happens once a year.

So far for 2018 we have sent off 996 quilts
Bringing our total since we started to over 9777 quilts

So far for 2018 we have sent off 2079 laundry bags
Bringing our total since we started to over 18,675 laundry bags

Don't forget the names are shown below the work.

I missed seeing all your amazing sewing last week, but you have made up for it this week for me, with beautiful stitching.
Have a wonderful Fathers Day on Sunday

See you Round like a Rissole

The Annual Thank You Dinner is coming up......

Have you booked your Tickets for the Dinner yet??


It is that time of the year again... time to think about booking your tickets to our dinner again.  Actually, time to book tickets for all the functions on the weekend.

Can you please help me and spread the word.  The dinner is open to quilters and others who sew and contribute to Aussie Heroes but we would also love some recipients to come. Please share this post around and let people know it is on. 

We still have room for all events though I believe that the Tour of the Australian War Memorial is almost full, if not already fully subscribed. Unfortunately the tour will not include the Centenary of ANZAC Quilt. I was hopeful but it seems that can't happen on a weekend this year.   Next year I will look at having a tour of the AWM on the Friday afternoon.

There is plenty of space on the Tour of RMC.  Don't miss this.  There is so much to see and the history is wonderful!  You will love it.  

If you are interested in joining me for a "Beginners Brunch" please email me with the words "Beginners Brunch" in the Subject line of your email to make it easy for me.  I look forward to meeting you there. 



Ticket sales 

We are using an online Ticketing service this year and that makes life MUCH easier for us.  Please follow the link to book your spot for ANY of the events... even the free ones. Do not email me and ask me to reserve places for you as I am not able to do that. Any questions, let me know.

Tickets are available here 


Till next time.... keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
