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.
Wehey, a festival of colour thanks to such generous makes + volunteering. I spy your terrific tabletop-full of large picture squares too Amy. Glory glory all around ❤️
Here is Estelle's happy report from September 6. Sadly no post, but friends showed up to visit, work make deliveries and pick up items for distributions.
Thank you, and Well Done everyone!!
Post came into The Barn from far and wide. Here is Estelle's exciting report.
Wow that was amazingly quick…thanks for sharing our news from the barn. I’ve just added a few pics of Wandi’s distribution but no doubt you’ll get them all soon.
Delighted to read that parcels are getting through.
All super news. Love seeing the smiley faces. Thank you Xx
Lovely! So many cute and cuddly toys and colourful squares.
I also believe there may be 2 parcels from me in the first photo. There are 2 bundles wrapped in black plastic and mummified with tape that I think are mine. Good to see things are arriving again at last!
They are yours Wendy. Luckily for us we didn’t have time to open all the post…something to look forward to next week. We never know if there will be new post, it’s so frustrating as we are well aware of what should be arriving.
Ok, how cool is this - Jane Mack (in the US) is about the only person I (in Japan) know in real life on here. Neither of us knew the other knitted for Knit-a-square until today when our parcels arrived on the same day and you happened to mention both of us in this post! I sent her a message as soon as I saw, and we even had a phone call just to be sure. It made this a very good day for us!
The cardigans I sent came from my son-in-law's grandmother. I know they aren't what you usually collect, but we hope you can find someone who can use them.
Woah, that's great!! Small world sometimes isn't it. So happy you've reconnected ✔️
I was so surprised!
