Opening Days in the
Knit A Square Barn 2021
...ending with full shelves.
Opening day at the KAS Barn is all about opening parcels and sorting the squares. Bundling the squares to be sewn into blankets and then preparing blankets for distributions.
We hope that 2021 will be a year of great success for KAS and all the children of South Africa that receive KAS blankets.

Episode 5 of season 2 featured an interview with Gloria Grandy and today's episode contains interviews with teachers from the Northern Cape who received blankets from Knit-a-Square. They share their feelings about the distributions and give some insight into the struggles that the children and their families face, especially at this time of COVID.
Thank you Leanne for letting us know about the technical difficulties and also how to access the podcasts via another door! I haven’t yet listened to today’s episode, but I have listened to your interview with Gloria. I really enjoyed listening in and feeling a connection to such an inspirational, caring KAS sister.
Through the forum we are able to get to know other KAS sisters who are kindred spirits, thank you Leanne for enabling us to hear them too. X
