The March Snippets has been posted to the Forum. http://square-circle-forum.ning.com/forum/topics/kas-snippets-march...

In it you will find the latest information about COVID 19 in South Africa.  They are currently in a 21 day lock down, yes, the entire county.  This started on March 26.

We have updates from our March Theme, The Blanket Room and news from our sisters around the world.

We pray that you are managing the restrictions in your individual countries in regards to the Coronavirus.  This is a challenging time for the world.  Our stashes maybe getting smaller in light of staying indoors, and we know your hearts are full of love for the children in South Africa.  

Please take care and stay safe.

Update from Ronda about Corona Virus

Things are hotting up in SA regarding Covid-19 - the president due to speak in an hour or two and we suspect it will be the lock down talk. 

I have already asked a Lindi, Wandi, Mabel and Nani to make this Tues their last volunteer day until 5th May ... they wanted to continue but it’s not viable as most are using public transport in between times and that is where the most contact transmission will take place. So I’ll do the post tomorrow with Themba for the last time ... and deliver it to the barn ... and that will be the end for more than a month. I’m so sorry to give such bad news but if this virus takes hold in the high density areas it will cause total devastation.

Please do not send any post to South Africa until further notice.

Thanks to all of you for your support of Knit a Square.

WHO IS THIS??


WHY IT'S AUNT NELLIE, OF COURSE.


Every one has one, in some form or other. She's the hard-to-buy for person on everyone's Christmas list. She already has everything a person could want, she is allergic to chocolates and flowers. but you have to find a gift for her.


You can find the answer to this problem by visiting the Let's Talk Shop discussion here on page 8 and forward.

You will find some unique gift suggestions you might not have thought of. (if you go to the KAS Shop here you might even catch a glimpse of Aunt Nellie 'cause she shops there too, knowing that every penny spent in the Shop goes straight to the work of KAS SA).
