As we are waiting out the cold of a Canadian winter and chilly early spring, my mind goes out to the little ones who are facing the coming winter in South Africa. 

Let's warm them, and the hurting world, stitch by loving stitch.

We have another fantastic issue of KAS Snippets for everyone.

The Barn and The Blanket Room reopened after a long holiday break.

Leanne has started Season 3 of KAS Podcasts.

Our January theme has given us so much eye candy...thanks to all our contributors.

We have good news on the financial front, as well as photos from the last distribution from 2021.

Happy reading:

Hi all,

We have a group from LaSalle Comprehensive Community High School in Montreal that is interested in making squares for KAS as a community service project.  Is there anyone out there that could act as a local contact person?

Here is the school website:

They reached out via Facebook.

What a treat it is to have Gloria back in the editor seat for this month's issue of KAS Snippets.

She has filled this edition with lots of color and wonderful stories.

If you are looking for a gift for a loved one or yourself, she has a marvelous list of ideas from the KAS Shop.

We have had some distributions, Christmas color have been blasting The Barn, and this month's theme has been a huge success.

Check it all out on the Forum:

The latest edition of the KAS Snippet has been posted on the Forum.

We look back to October 2008 when KAS was first formed at a family reunion in Australia.

Be inspired by this month's theme - Waiting To Be Chosen.

Check at the discussion about themes for 2022.

There is even more interesting news about KAS, so check it out.

The KAS Snippets for August has been posted on the Forum.
This issue is filled with lots of information from August. We also have a new blanket in our Memory Blanket Discussion. We take a visit to May of 2015 when our monthly theme was PJs, our Theme for the Year 2021.
We highlight a gift for all of your knitters, and have great news on the financial front.
Check it out!

KAS Snippets is now live on The Forum.

We highlight distributions from the end of June and those few that have been made in July.

Our monthly theme - "Around the World", is a discussion you do not want to miss.

Leanne has produced two incredible Podcasts, you can listen to them while you are making items for KAS.

There are photos, videos and comments from our members or about our members.

KAS Podcast - Season 2, Ep. 12

In this episode, Athelé tells us about three distributions that she and Estelle managed to do before the latest level four lockdown occurred. Blankets, beanies, hand warmers and toys were handed out to vulnerable children in the settlements of Hammanskraal and Lion Park on behalf of our generous knitters around the world.

Much of the focus in the conversation is on what it feels like to be caught between one’s own comfortable lifestyle and the suffering of others. This is a “slice of life” episode, providing a window on the many difficulties our volunteers have to contend with and what, ultimately, makes the work so rewarding.

Castles And Picture Squares

Season 2, Ep. 11

Marion Davies lives within sight of the historic Conwy Castle in North Wales and shares with us her passion for crocheting picture squares to incorporate into the beautiful blankets that get distributed to orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa.

She also tells Leanne about an unfortunate craft-related injury she sustained and how she manages to avoid further disruptions in her crocheting of squares. We can all learn from her experience. To be unable to knit or crochet for an extended period is extremely frustrating, especially when you see photographs of what others are producing on the forum!
