Hi Cassidy. A very warm welcome to you from the East Coast of Canada!
My name is Gloria and I’m one of several Moderators on our Square Circle Forum. My job is to put together our monthly newsletter - KAS Snippets. Each month I pull together photos and information from the forum and our members, along with requests from our team in South Africa - sort of a KAS-at-a-glance, so to speak. You should receive notification near the end of each a month with a link to the current edition. I hope you will enjoy catching up on all the KAS news!
One of the many great things about Knit-a-Square is the photos our volunteers in South Africa take and share with us - photos of our squares on the sorting tables - photos of our squares in blankets - and best of all, photos of our squares in blankets wrapped around the beautiful children! We actually get to see our work in action!
You will be welcomed into any of our discussions so come on in and put your feet up, grab your yarn and hook/needles and enjoy. You are among friends.
Hi Cassidy, A warm welcome from the Netherlands. My name is Anneke and I am responsible for making the monthly squares list. On this list you can see when your parcels arrive at the KAS Barn. Also I have created a Discussion page "Squares List" with clear instructions about how to prepare your squares, hats, handwarmers and toys and instructions about how to send your parcels to South-Africa.
Welcome to KAS Square Circle, Cassidy. Do you like to knit or crochet or are you one of those awesome people who can do both! !? I like to knit best but I am trying to crochet my first Grannie Square from a library book right now. I live in Vancouver on the Pacific Ocean. This is a great site full of wonderful people working for a great cause. People here are so positive and willing to help. Welcome! Arlene
"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.
