Request List 05 October 2020

5 October  2020 Request List  

Hello everyone - Happy Long Weekend Monday!.....and here's your Request List choice. Who's sewing this week? What will you select?   So much to choose from this week and I am hoping there will be a rush to pick up a project. Christmas is coming (yes, 11 and a bit weeks to go)  and whilst we can let's get quilts and laundry bags sent off in the AFPO mail and en route to our valued ADF recipients.

I may not be able to reply to your emails so quickly today - we've been visiting grandchildren in Canberra and driving back to Sydney today, so please be patient if I'm delayed getting back to you. But don't let that be cause for any hesitation to read through and find a project or two that ticks a box for your fabric stash. I hope to have a full e-in box with your emails offering to sew.

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 >  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. Likewise a reminder that little extra patience may be needed if there's a delay with request embroideries arriving in your mail box - across Australia and particularly in Victoria there's lengthy delays with expected post arrival. 

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. Our goal is to help you find a request that you will be comfortable with doing. 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    I look forward to seeing the photos of completed quilts and LBs when they are ready to post off.

As aforementioned 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. 

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

P.P.S.  Don't forget to check out AHQ on the Blog, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
