Aussie Hero Quilts Requests 30 Sep 19


Hi all,

Badges, crests, silhouettes…..

Don’t be intimidated by the request that want the above, I can probably send the badges and crests to you and can also sent you silhouettes that you can print out and applique as is, or enlarge for extra impact.

Priority Requests – can you help??

Between now and Christmas, because of changeovers etc we are going to have a lot more priority requests than I would like. 

numbers 3-11 inclusive must be in the mail no later than 28 October, NO LEEWAY.  Please message if you can help.

The post by date for ALL other items on this list is 5 November 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.

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…  

The first column is the theme or preferences requested.
The second column indicates the gender of the recipient.
The third column is as follows.

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
F= female
M= male

The last column with the number is a simple registration number for me to use… it is only relevant for this week only and will change if the request is still on the list next week. Once you have received the recipient’s details you will need to use those to refer to the recipient from then on if need be.

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…. i.e. 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.

There are lots of requests in this list that call for badges, crests, logos and international flags. In just about all cases I can either print the required for you, can send you an embroidered version to piece in or whatever is needed is easy to applique.  Please don’t be intimidated by those requests… just ask if you are unsure. See the info below which will expand on some of the requirements.

Australian National Flag - you can buy panels at Spotlight – ask for them if you can’t find them.
Afghanistan flag – I can send you one.

Rising Sun, RAAF Crest, Navy Crest, Coat of Arms, RAEME 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 may be able to get it embroidered and sent to you to be sewn on the quilt or sewn into it.  Just let me know what words you want, what colour fabric and what colour thread… keep it simple please.   Also include your address in the email to save me time please.

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

We still need quite a few random laundry bags to be sent to Malaysia for our Rifle Company of Soldiers training there again… the postage is the same cost as sending them to me… they must be masculine or gender neutral… NOT feminine or flowery please.   You can fit 5-6 in a 3kg pre-paid satchel or 12-13 in a 5kg pre-paid satchel.. this is the cheapest way to send them

It would be an honour to receive one of your beautifully made quilts. This is my 3rd trip to the ME and 5th deployment, the previous 2 to Timor and the Solomons, so perhaps colours that could somehow reflect that? I am Army, RAAMC before transferring to AAPsych.
