Request List 10 May 2021

 

Good morning everyone,

There’s been a lot to celebrate and also commemorate lately…..arrivals of newborns (including a new granddaughter for me), birthdays of those with significantly more candles on the cake, engagements of friends, weddings and sadly funerals too. I have delighted in receiving news emailed from lovely Aussie Heroes volunteers and in turn send my dearest good wishes of joy and sincere condolence to those touched by such moments.

These special times however also bring to mind the degree of separation from family and friends of our deployed ADF service men and women as they serve our beautiful country, of the occasions diarised but only shared digitally at best.  Items and messages sent from home are a thread of connection and help to lessen the ‘disconnect’. Likewise the colourful, personalised and comforting quilts and laundry bags we dispatch; just a small token of our thanks to those serving but immensely valued by the recipients together with our notes within to further bring news from ‘down under’ to their deployed location.

Catherine and I await your emails today – what Request can you take on?  Let us know! And your news too J

Cheers and happy stitching,

Clarissa

Essential info and weekly updates .....

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 one of the admin crew – we are here to support you.  We will be ‘on duty’ in rotation.

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 with the admin team.  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. Also, please use the Aussie Heroes P O Box address on your parcel in the event the parcel is Returned to Sender -  the PO Box is a safe place in the event of  any mishaps with postage.

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.
