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.

Dear Amy, thank you so much for this inspiring BARN 2021 information page! What a great start and a wonderful surprise. The received blankets, squares, toys and other goodies are extraordinarily beautiful!!! It inspires me to make photos of my 2 blankets as soon as there is more daylight here! And I second Rebecca: and a huge thank you to all who were involved in the opening day!
Thank you Amy, for this most fabulous start to 2021!! A real lift to the spirits. xo
A huge thanks to everyone who has had their fingers in top gear opening, sorting and packing the blankets...heroes, each and everyone. xo
Thank you to all those who have continued crafting and have been able to get their parcels posted. The need is always there. xo
Barn news from Estelle on January 26.
What a fabulous pile of parcels to open! The RJSK will be happy to see that their parcels are once again arriving in SA. Thank you for letting us know, Estelle :)
The collective project from students and teachers in Croatia is heartwarming. With so much love coming to them from these dear crafters, the children can't help but be warmed by their gifts. Thank you to all who participated in this effort ... xo
Wow! Such a bounty of love and warmth from all corners of the world.
Thamks sooo much Team SA for working so hard to get as much sorted, sewn and distributed, as possible. Young Sheldon...what a star!!!!
Fantastic opening day! What a sight!! Kudos to all the SA team! And, please stay healthy.
Notes from Estelle on February 2, 2021.
What a heart warming cross section of bountiful goodies with so much colour, love and warmth unfolding. Thanks so much for these pictures. It makes my day actually - even more so as I see at least 3, if not 4 of my parcels have arrived too....High 5's to all you wonderful people! I'll be like Tigger bouncing around with excitement in case they get opened next week, or the week after, or.......it really doesn't metter, just so nice to see they're with you and on their way to the needy children.
I love these updates! Thank you, Estelle, for all the great "action" photos :) Such a colorful and warm-looking bounty from so many crafters from so many countries. Amazing!.
And thank you, Amy, for posting the pics here. I remember when you traveled to Africa :) You brought us back some super photos, as I recall ... xo
Thank you to all the South Africa volunteers, and the crafters worldwide. It is so inspiring and fun to see all these pictures. We know it takes time and effort to get the photos and post them for us, extra work for you, but we sure appreciate it. Hugs to all, from a Covid-safe distance.
The third picture down has some of my crochet squares, namely dark red and green mohair. Thank you, Estelle, for the mention, I didn't see them myself.
I love Amy’s LOVE squares now nestled in a blanket.Great to see another of my blankets held up by Ath.
Thank you all for what you do!
