Hi Susan, when did you send the parcels, how and how many? By airmail or surface mail?
My 2 parcels from May are not on the list either, following "track&trace" one should have arrived in July and the other one is still underway, (according to track&trace it is in a centre for sorting out parcels in South Africa) did not arrive yet - today - at the PO in Bryanston, while normally airmail parcels arrive in 10 days. Please keep in mind that there is always an administrative backlog at KAS, especially now that some months ago the preparations and the organizing of the distributions have started. Also, parcels can be "underway" for ages.
Anneke, I have received hundreds of photos this week, both for Sorted in Africa and Blanket Room. I am trying to sort them as there are duplications but there is a photo or two of a blanket made by you and received by either the 4th or 11th July - it's a commemorative blanket and appears in both batches of photos. I will post them all as soon as I can.
Susanne, I haven't actually recognised any of your goods amongst the photos but parcels are pouring in and as Anneke's hasn't yet been listed there is obviously a delay. Perhaps you'll see some of your work when I manage to post the pictures.
Hi Christine, Thank you so much for the information, much appreciated. One parcel did not arrive yet in Bryanston, it is somewhere in SA (e.g. at customs at an airport in SA), I am sure that one day it will arrive.
Please take your time to sort out the photos, I know that it will be a lot of work! xo
