My husband, Dave, will be performing at Sandi Pointe Coastal Jazz Bistro in Somers Point tomorrow night, Tuesday, Feb 18th, at 8 pm. If you can go, tell him I sent you! He is the piano player. Wish I could be there but it's a work night for me!
Sally...my husband is a musician and will be playing in OC at the music pavilion on the boardwalk this summer with Ed Wise and His New Orleans Jazz Band. Date isn't certain yet but might be in late June. Watch for us and come up and say hello!
Hello Sally, so glad you have joined us. Keeping the children in South Africa warm has brought together a world-wide group of caring knitters and crocheters. As the name implies, we focus on sending 8” x 8”(20 cm x 20 cm) squares to be made into blankets to provide comfort to the many children in need.
Looking for patterns? Check the KAS Pattern Book [see menu bar above] for garments and squares for the children. We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years old. This age group is in need of warm garments and blankets.
Please visit “Helpful Hints” [see menu bar above] for information about: Questions you may have (FAQs), how to navigate the forum and Postage information.
We have 3 challenges that you might be interested in joining. Until April we are focussing on long-sleeved garments for the children to wear during their cold winters. Click here to read all about it ! The February challenge is called Hearts and Red, White and Pink.Click here The third 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 from 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.
