Request List 30 November 2020

 

30 November 2020 Request List 

Good morning, Hello!  Can you take on a quilt or laundry bag request this week?  I enjoy getting gifts ready for family and friends not to mention getting the AHQ laundry bags I’ve been sewing packed with a bit of tinsel and Christmas extra. This is really getting me in the mood for sewing more knowing some of these dispatches will be opened by folk far from home at Christmas.  Let me now if you can manage a Request from this week’s list – I am looking forward to hearing from you!

A reminder , when  you are ready to post  the quilt or laundry bag you’ve created, please use the PMKeyS number given you in any correspondence. This helps the volunteer admin team keep a track of what’s been sent etc.  The PMKeys number is included in the address details we supply for your recipient e.g.  the 7 digit number in red below. It is unique for each recipient. 

CPL Wanda Quilt 8765432
TG 3456
AFPO XX
ADF
Sydney NSW 2890


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.

If you are using a AHQ supplied prepaid satchel please kindly use the AHQ address as the Return / From address on the reverse and also please hold on to the Tracking number – we’ve experienced mail delays lately (haven’t we all?) and having the Tracking number is very reassuring to keep an eye on the parcel’s progress in arriving at its destination.

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  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.


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”  and let me know what you’d like to sew this week.

Wishing everyone a super week of sewing. 

Cheers,
Clarissa
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 


Priority Quilts 

Requests  2-10  are our priority items this week and need to be in the mail by  27 December or even earlier if you can manage - thank you!!!   Can you help with these?    Covid Assist laundry bags are still in demand for troops on duty with tasks  including  border protection, hotel quarantine and testing.

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.
