It is confusing when post offices can't decide what the 'rules' are! 

We've had some expressions of uncertainty with regard to how much to declare as the value of a parcel.

Please go to our HELPFUL HINTS, and specifically POSTAGE INFORMATION for clarity.

Our December Theme


Elaine Jones (UK) has offered us a chance to do some serious stash-busting and use up some of our odds and ends, bits and pieces, leftover yarn.  She says, "Just think of all the space you’ll make and money you’ll save … just in time to go yarn shopping in the January sales!  Let’s do some stash-busting for the children ..."

On our Square Circle Forum, we share photos of our work, stay up to date with information from KAS S.A., exchange patterns, ideas, and inspiration, and generally just

have a lot of fun!


... won't you?

We've even been known to throw a party now and then in support of Knit-a-Square!  

Our guest list is growing, so why not join our PAY THE RENT Campaign and help put our calendar 'in the pink'.

We promise that all of our sweets are absolutely calorie-free!

During November Ronda and the Team have been very busy!  

220 parcels were received and opened and the total contents were:

and many other goodies (marked under column "Other" in the Squares list).


Because of the large volume of parcels, Ronda and the Team are unable to send personal notification of parcel arrival. Please check the Squares List.

Thank you for your understanding.

A BIG THANK YOU to the Team in SA, the Gogos

 and all the crafting volunteers around the world

 who make it possible to warm the children! 

We, your Forum Moderators, would like to thank you for your support of KAS, for your constant participation on our Forum, and for the love, warmth, and color you have added to so many young lives.  Without you, too many children would be chilly, our volunteers in S.A. would feel valueless, and your Mods would be miserable :)

From all of us to all of you,

A Very Merry Christmas

and may 2017

keep you in stitches!
