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
Cheers for now,
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.
Aussie Hero Quilts (and Laundry Bags)
PO Box 248, Cherrybrook,
CPL Wanda Quilt 8765432
Sydney NSW 2890
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. I personally love viewing the
photos of those projects dispatched – so inspiring.
If you are using a
AHQ supplied prepaid satchel please kindly use the AHQ address – also for your
own packaging – if a parcel is Returned to Sender it is likely we can expedite
its journey to the recipient from Sydney.
Quilts (and Laundry Bags)
PO Box 248
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.
Clarissa, Alex, Courtney, Lisa, Kylie, Catherine,
Jan-Maree, Chloe and Veronica
