Sue, I do love coincidences ! We live 8 hours north of Toronto so don't visit there very often. If you are walking in the Barnard Castle area you might run into my husband's cousin walking her Golden Retriever, Duke.
Hello Sue, so glad you have joined us. Every few years we visit your area from Canada. We have family in Staindrop and Barnard Castle but all we've seen of Darlington is the train station :-)
If you are looking for patterns please check the KAS Pattern Book for garments and squares for the children. We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years old.
Also visit “Helpful Hints” [see menu bar above] for information about: Questions you may have (FAQs) and how to navigate the forum
We have monthly challenges that you might be interested in joining. This month we are focussing on long-sleeved garments for the children to wear during their cold winters. Click here to read all about it !
At the same time we are running a second challenge: KAS Reaches Great Heights for the Children has us making squares to reach the height of Table Mountain in South Africa. That is 178,000 squares ! Click here to join us by adding your squares and a photo, if possible, to the total.
If you are interested in joining any of our challenges, please note: Your parcel does not need to arrive in South Africa before the end of the challenge month. Many of us use sea-mail and find parcels take between 6-10 weeks to arrive. Since parcels are arriving all the time, please use the most inexpensive way to send. Whenever your parcel arrives, it will be appreciated.
Making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and help the children. Plain Janes, as they are affectionately called, are the backbone of KAS. Since a blanket is created with 35 squares sent by people around the world, squares are needed all the time.
We would love to see photos of your work. Click on the photo option in the tabs above and follow the prompts.
"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
