Ever wonder what happens with all that mail that arrives in South Africa?  It goes to the KAS Barn where many volunteers SORT everything out to eventually be distributed to local children.

   Please check in here on a regular basis to see photos from all the activity in the KAS Barn during 2020.

Here are the first pictures of 2020 from the KAS Barn and our wonderful team of volunteers sorting, sharing and getting all our squares ready for blankets.

This from Ronda:

The first week, as you will see, we had Gabbi and Katlego (Matric students)
come and help us tidy up.  They lost a bit of focus after a while so Wandi
taught them both to knit, which was hilarious to watch !

The last few pictures from January 7, 2020.

What a great idea that the students can log their volunteer hours like this. We have similar programs in Canada but of course no KAS.  Thank you for all these photos. Very encouraging to me as I had to take a break for health reasons and am now starting up again with knitting squares.

Photos from January 14, 2020.

There were some delightful toys that arrived that a child of any age would enjoy.

Yarn makes a great slip in to any box as filler, and the gogo groups love seeing the new colors while they sew up our blankets.

Super!  The toys are enchanting and I love seeing the yarn slip-ins.

Thank you, Amy, for starting us off fresh in 2020.  It's always nice to see what's happening ... and arriving! ... at the KAS Barn ... xo

From Estelle on January 14 opening day.

Heather and Joyce visited us from Waterval Village today with about 4 big black bags of lovely blankets made by the residents. All the blankets should be posted on The Forum during the next couple of weeks.
Amy your emoji came out beautifully I think Heather had a lot of fun putting it together.

Our birthday girl, Audrey, with two Cath Riley’s she joined. They are fabulous Audrey and Cath.

Karla Bystrianská from The Czech Republic sent the two fabulous crocheted blankets/ squares

Lovely to see all the activity in the Barn again. Some beautiful toys and blankets, loving the granny square blankets.

Just wondering though, what does Ronda have on her head? I hope it isn't an over large hat!

It´s nice to see so many lovely toys and beautiful blankets. I am very happy one of my parcels arrived safely to KAS, too.

Happy New Year everyone.   It's great to see activity in the barn again.    If you are open the wool will come!!
