Bev, I asked at my local PO about delivery times and they said they guarantee that a parcel will arrive in the country of destination in 10-14 days, but it can take much longer for it to then reach the final destination, depending on the efficiency of the country. i.e. it arrives at a major port/airport in 10-14 days, but will then likely be taken by road to a sorting centre then sent out to the nearest collection centre, before finally being taken to the actual delivery address.

I asked, as I sent a parcel Airmail to Canada once and it took almost a month before the recipient actually had it in hand. I was getting really worried it was lost!

Thank you for this info, Wendy. I tend not to ask too many questions at my p.o. All they said to me was 10+ days, but they couldn't (or maybe didn't want to) say how many days the 'plus' was.  :))  Your p.o. sounds better informed.

 Thank you Anneke. Bev, the 5 parcels from Sandra, and the 3 from me were posted in early Dec, Jan, Feb and March ( not air mail).  Last week Little Libraries received 3 parcels in one day from me posted Dec, Dec, Feb and March and JBAY received my large parcel of Winter clothes posted in Feb.           my Africa theme parcel for Mandela Dayarrived just in time, so for next year I plan to have my Africa theme goodies completed and posted by end of this Dec. to be on the safe side.  I will label them  as being for Mandela Day, but save my photos until the Africa Theme month

I think that's the way to go, Susanne.....and I had had that plan in the back of my mind for this year, too. Problem is so many plans in the back of my mind....and I'm small-minded....LOL

Anneke, I noticed that in the French parcel arrivals, there were 3 from Retirement Home. I was just wondering if there were a way to find out where the parcels originated in France. I know thet 1 of my retirement homes had 1 package that they sent, but I don't know if that's the same as the home on the list.  Is there anyone in SA whom I could ask for more info?  I ask because normally I let them know when the parcels arrive.

I was happy to see that my last 2 arrived safely and ver quickly this time.

Hi Valerie, The 3 parcels are coming from a retirement home (most likely EHPAD Roux de Berny)  in St. Germain l'Herm 63630. Hope to have been of help.

Thank you, Anneke. That's what I was hoping to find out. This is a retirement home in the tiny village where my mother-in-law was born. I go spend several weeks in the summer with her there.  I'll visit the home and let them know that their parcels arrived safely.

Oh Valerie, that's fantastic news! The ladies from the retirement home will be pleased to hear that their parcels have arrived safely! And so many squares! Vive la France! Wonderful. So nice that you share that MIL was born there :-)  xoxo

The July 2018 Squares List is available.

  MONTHLY TOTALS

 

In July we received 12.250 squares, equal to 350 blankets.

In total 89.907 squares, equal to 2.568 blankets!

Only 80 parcels were received due to a postal strike. Luckily the strike is over, so might your name not be on the July list, in August a mountain of parcels arrived at Knit-a-Square, please click HERE to see a photo of the parcels and a message from Estelle and Ronda.

Many other items were received, such as hats, handwarmers, go-overs, cuddly toys and other goodies.

By means of this hearts square made by Bev Jeffery

WE THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS!

A message for Sue Gillman. Sue, I just noticed that there is a mistake in the column "Country". UK should read New Zealand. My apologies. I have corrected it now in the original spreadsheet.

good to see the number of squares going up despite the mini postal strike. Yay for the school!

Thanks Anneke it's fine. At least I can see my parcel of toys arrived [with a few squares for disguise]
