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.
Such good news that things seem to be getting back to normal. Post Office, here I come!
Estelle's wonderful report from May 24...
Excellent, thanks a lot for this update ✔️
Thank you for your photos. But I´d like to remark that a rabbit from TWO COLOUR THEME is mine not Beryl´s.
Thank you Karla for correctly identifying this precious bunny.
We do make mistakes, and really appreciate it when our members recognize their work and let us know. We always try to get the identification correct. We are so sorry for mislabeling this two toned bunny. We will try to do better in the future.
That´s O.K., Amy. I know you have a lot to do with parcels and such mislabeling happens.
So sorry Karla and that’s such a super bunny. When I don’t open the parcels I’m never 100% sure who they come from thanks for letting us know, now we link your name to the finished blanket.
So happy for you to get a glimpse of your beautiful work Ada.
It is so fun to see our work arrive in The Barn? Many thanks to Estelle and the volunteers for sharing these images with us.
Your squares are a treat for us Ada…I love the cheeky crocodile! The children will be over the moon when they see these blankets.
The month of May ended with a large post and lost of fun in The Barn.
Three cheers to Estelle and the crew.
Thank you so much for this coverage. I could see a parcel I had mailed amongst the first pile, and I'm overjoyed to see that you have shown Pat's blanket. She's unwell currently and seeing this picture has lifted her spirits..... ✔️✔️✔️. The colours and variety amongst every tableful is a delight to behold.
