Received the laundry bag, I can't thank you enough, very Australian and very fitting.
Myself, and the rest of my Platoon here are very grateful for the time and effort that you put in, it certainly doesn't go unappreciated, and the craftsmanship is quite amazing.
I am the Platoon Commander (Lieutenant) here with about 70 people under my command, I can tell you that all the guys and girls eagerly await the arrival of their Laundry Bags or Quilts, and no one is disappointed.
Thank you again,
I just received my awesome new Seattle Seahawks Quilt.
Thank you very much, I couldn't have asked for a better quilt - It will be with me on all my future deployments.
Could you please pass on my many thanks to Gale C and Jenny D for a fabulous job!
Also thank you for the Tim Tams, the boys and I finished them in one sitting!
Once again thank you for your support to myself and to all those that serve.
Have a great day.
I just wanted to let you know that I received my Quilt (made by Lynn and quilted by Belinda) and Laundry Bag today.
I love it, and truthfully, I feel like I don't deserve it....... I actually saw the laundry bag on your recent blog post, and did wonder if that was mine, haha.
I will send Margaret a personal email, but I just wanted to express my deepest gratitude for the work that your organistation does. I feel rather emotional as I write this.
I will take a picture of the quilt and post it to Facebook.
Again, thank you for the work Aussie Hero Quilts and Laundry Bags does. Receiving this package has truly made my day.
I needed to write to you for a plethora of reasons, first and foremost to tell you how humbled and proud I am to hear my colleagues and I are thought of at all let alone the esteem you and your amazing network at AHQ hold us in. I'm currently serving on my 7th deployment in the MEAO totaling around 26 months. Needless to say I'm very familiar with this part of the world now and in all my time over here nothing has touched me as much as the personal attention given to us by AHQ. I was first introduced to AHQ when I commented on the brilliant red and white Swannies quilt one of my staff had adorning his bed making it look homely and inviting rather than looking like a jail cell. When he explained where it had come from and the story behind it I was amazed.
I've obviously been in touch since and I now proudly show off an inviting room decked out with one of your quilts decorated with surfing scenes and a C130 silhouette. Absolutely fantastic as the photo attests! So, a huge thank you to Lynn and Robin for the quilting, and of course you for caring about us in the first place and certainly not least for the amazing personalized quilt.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart to you, your amazing team at AHQ and to all those who spare a thought for us. We'll be raising a toast to you on ANZAC day from afar.
Till next time...............keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
