Request List 14 September 2020

 14 September  2020 Request List  


Monday!! !  And here’s this week’s Request List.  So much to choose from, such lovely themes to describe in fabric, unknown destinations to imagine, acknowledgment of service to express in colour and stitch.   I love putting the Request List together, thinking of the recipients and where these amazing quilts and laundry bags will end up – it’s all up to you, the amazing Aussie Heroes volunteers.  I hope there’s a choice on this list that you’d like to sew.....I am looking forward to receiving the emails accepting the interesting themed requests.

We are still creating colourful and cheery laundry bags to send off to the ADF team deployed on Covid Assist.    If you can, please put together this week a fun and fabulous  laundry bag for someone serving.  We’ll send you the address for dispatch and would love to see a photo in return to add to the Weekly Dispatches blog post! If you’ve not sewn an Aussie Hero laundry bag before but would like to give one a try here’s the link to the Instructions on the AHQ blog > http://aussieheroquilts.blogspot.com/p/laundry-bag-specifics.html 


Any queries you might have, please don’t hesitate to contact via the AHQ email as per usual with any queries and we will assist you from there.  We may not know the answer but it will be our pleasure to research and get back to you.  You may find your query is answered by me or perhaps Alex, Catherine, Courtney or Lisa. We will be ‘on duty’ in rotation.  I do wish however to bring to your attention the link to info regarding posting off your laundry bag or quilt  - click here for up-to-date info > http://aussieheroquilts.blogspot.com/p/posting-information.html.  If you have a quilt underway but are concerned you may not complete it by the ‘post by’ date, please let me know;  an adjustment may be available. Don’t forget to take a photo of your completed craft, email to AHQ with the name and PMKeys of the recipient and we can include  in the Weekly Dispatches blog and also add to the tally of quilts and laundry bags sent off to the troops.
 
Don’t forget, if you look at today’s Request List and need help choosing, please feel free to get in touch to discuss, we will be ready to reply and offer guidance by email. If you need a crest etc  we may be able to post  embroideries / printed fabric images or email some of these to you. Helpful info may be gleaned here 

http://aussieheroquilts.blogspot.com/2019/07/information-post-for-those-that-sew-for.html    I look forward to seeing the photos of completed quilts and LBs when they are ready to post off.
 
I will respond to your emails when you respond to select a quilt or laundry bag to sew.  But please don’t delay, make your selection, send your email through, say “Hi” J and let me know what you’d like to sew this week.

I am looking forward to connecting with you. 

Cheers,
Clarissa
Working with Alex, Courtney, Lisa, Kylie, Catherine and Jan-Maree...and the team  of other wonderful  AHQ volunteers.

Priority Quilts 

Requests  8 - 25 are our priority items this week and need to be in the mail by 8 October or even earlier if you can manage - thank you!!!   Can you help with these?  And a huge shout out of thanks to all the magnificent volunteers who took on a priority quilt from last week’s emergency call out.

 
You may be aware of postal delays holding up timely delivery of mail.  Despite that problem, the post by date for all items on this list is 19 October  please or earlier :).  If you cannot make that date, please let me know. 
 
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, thank you.  But by and large the post  by date is relevant to the address we are given for the time frame of the deployment, and bearing in mind that mail is not on a daily or even weekly basis for many of the recipients.
 
FOR ANY NEW VOLUNTEERS
 
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…  
 
Decoding The Columns
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
 
Please let the Admin crew know if you have any other questions.
 
Cheers
