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.

Those two monkeys are just too cute for words. Love that you put them together on a square.
It just shows you how one picture square can brighten up a blanket.
I am A-GOG!! These pictures really relay to us looking on just how much and how very conscientiously The Barn volunteers can turn mountains around. I have goosebumps in fact. What a monumental team effort. Every stitch sent with love and handled with such respect.
A M A Z I N G!! Thank you all. X
Wow, so many gorgeous blankets. Love all the beautiful picture blankets Sandra made, they are sure to delight the recipient.
Lovely to see all the toys and those cosy fluffy hats look so soft and cuddly!
Well done everyone for clearing the decks, even if they got filled again with the new post!
Oh Amy & Estelle
What a great way for me to start my day. I am so happy and very relieved to see that both my parcels arrived on the same day. The first was posted November last year and the other May this year and both arrived on the same day. Hopefully they will be out the door and given to children pretty quickly. Let's hope the backlog of mail is working itself out with Customs etc.
Sandra your blankets brought everyone to a standstill yesterday. It was one magnificent blanket coming out of your bag after another, thank you so so much. There was a lot of post from Aussie yesterday and we were delighted to see how well yours and Susanne’s were packed and secured with masking tape as they travel such a long way. As your blankets are so special we thought that we’d like to keep them for our Christmas distribution. We try and make these a bit smaller so that each child is presented with a similar package….just loved your Christmas trees!
Wowee, my blanket only took 2 weeks to get to SA!!! It is the one beneath the blanket of Cath Riley and Amy's squares. Thrilled to say the least:)
Estelle was back in the Barn on October 19, after a much deserved holiday.
Here are some amazing photos and a great recap of the activity today.

Thank you for sharing Amy.
My pleasure...looks like it was a very busy and productive day in the Barn.
The volunteers in SA really amaze me with the amount of handmade items passing over their desks and piling high around them, and all with happy smiles too. Hats off to you all. I'm very impressed!
Lovely to see so many Beautiful blankets and toys. Mum and I both adore the little doll with his change of outfit, so cute. I love all the bright and beautiful granny square blankets too.
