Very late opening this thread this year for various reasons that you know about but lots of pictures have now been received and should be posted over the next few days. Many more will appear in the Blanket Room 2017 which will be opened shortly.

Thank you for sharing photos of the wonderful Gogos of Siskonke. They do a fabulous job!!

Hi to Themba....and thank you so much for all your hard work.

Wonderful photos of the gogos at work.

I am delighted to see Themba's smiling face, it's not easy picking up parcels, for sure.

I love seeing the Gogos. How wonderful for them to be able to socialize and chat and work and help us out. God bless them every one. I really mean that.

Notes from the KAS Barn:

Viv and Ath with the most delightful finger puppets. They are from Sue Ferry and Knitting-for-Others.

So great to see. Wonderful work from everyone’s donations!

So great to see you Molly.  Glad to see that my big blue bags are being so recycled.  l will have to tuck something special for you in my next parcel.  Hugs!!

Few more pics from the KasBarn :

The toys and puppets are brilliant.  Some people are incredibly skilled.

I agree with Joan....loving the stacks of colourful squares, too.  :))

Wonderful handmade toys and puppets and the colourful blankets and piles of squares. A bonanza day I would say !

This week at the KAS Barn:

Opening day at the KNIT A SQUARE barn today. An enormous amount of post Yay but it cost us about R4,600 [318USD] to collect it and that’s only for one week. There must be someone out there who can approach the CEO of the Post Office about this handling fee for Charities.
We celebrated Vivienne’s birthday today.
There was a full house of volunteers and piles of beautiful squares. Thanks contributors.

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
