Knit a Square moved into what we loving call The Barn in 2015. It is located in Randburg, not far from our post office. This is a very large space that allows us to sort all the post, make blanket packs, stack blankets, and most important create our wonderful KAS cakes. Our volunteers show up on Tuesday morning around 9:00am and work their magic until about 3:00pm. Themba has already collected the post, and often times will make a distribution on Tuesdays.
Please know that the Barn is a success due to all our contributors, financial donors and volunteers. Without your ongoing support we would find it difficult to carry on.
Thank you all for everything.
Check in to this discussion frequently to see the latest news and photos from The Barn. Many thanks to our marvelous reporter, Estelle for bringing the fun of The Barn to us.
I am so glad that local squares are getting through!
We were so grateful to get the local squares Mary. It’s the first time since I have been at KAS that we didn’t have bundles for the Gogos.
More fun news from Estelle in The Barn on April 5.
So pleased to see that my blanket has arrived!!
I recognize some of the squares in the pink blanket held by Liz (?) as mine.
It's always fun to see what is going on in the barn. Thank you for all your hard work making our squares into blankets and distributing them.
On April 12 there was very little post, but our volunteers were very busy.
Please hold off on sending anything to The Barn until we get the all clear from our volunteers on site.
Here is the news from Estelle...
Lovely to see so any happy faces working together in the bars - and such wonderful blankets and squares!!
