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.

Hi Everyone,

I have made a couple of blankets and some individual squares and am wondering what is the best way to post them to S.A. What is the optimum parcel size for us to ship and KAS to pay customs charges?

Many Thanks,

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.  One of the Podcast has an interview with Marion Davies from Wales.

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.
