Hello dear KasFolk,
After a gap of way too long, you will shortly receive the first ever Square Circle Video Ezine (that is if you are a subscriber to Square Circle). You can join here.
We have been thinking for some time about the best way to get you regular news of the work you do as it unfolds in South Africa, and now Zimbabwe, that does not tie up our limited resources.
This first video is a start. It's more efficient for Ronda to send short video clips and for me, shortly with the help of Leanne, to compile them this end, then the lengthy written ezines and coding that went to put the ezines of old together.
The other great aspect of the video version of the ezine is that You Tube is great for searches and will find us more stitchers, who I hope will join our ever-growing KasCommunity.
Please will use this discussion to give us your feedback (bearing in mind that I am an amateur film maker!)
Let us know too, your thoughts about what you'd really like to see in the future.
We look forward to receiving video from you too. Especially if you are involved in a knitting group, school or church. Using your iphone makes it so easy these days and all you have to do is send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it for you. The wonderful singing at the beginning and end is the Phiri Parish Choir of which Lindiwe is a member in Soweto.
With warmest wishes and grateful thanks for all you do.
Sandy and the KasTeam

Thanks so much for these links, Linda! What a colossal achievement for all of you involved!!
Thanks, Linda! Yes, the sewn-up blankets came from people like you from all around the globe. I was moved to tears every time a box arrived and I handled the blankets with awe and admiration for the women who stitched them and for the children who would receive them. Jackie Sousa from Massachusetts and her employer were key in mailing the blankets to Soweto. It was a team effort all around and I have such wonderful memories of the process and the presentation/concert. What a wonderful experience!
wow that moved me to tears what a wonderful dedicated group of people to battle to achieve what they do so glad i can play a very small part
