Request List 31 May 2021

 

Hello all,

With another lockdown for many of our volunteers I am very mindful, as always, of the importance of keeping in touch with each other, whether it’s friends and family, acquaintances or work colleagues.  Opportunities for face to face catch-ups, reunions and gatherings are limited for some.  It’s times like this when I am again very thankful for  and value the moments of e-connecting with our wonderful AHQ volunteers around the nation…..engaged in stitching, embroidering, quilting, piecing, writing emails and letters – how ever you volunteer for Aussie Heroes your time, effort and commitment is so hugely appreciated….looking forward to hearing from you today and for more connections with our deployed troops away from home, abroad or on ships.

Cheers for now,

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.
