Square Circle Forum

This is the first time I am sending off hats and squares.  Labels have been printed off, but I am unsure where I complete the following.  Is this done at the Post Office?  Please advise.  

Many thanks and regards 


Fill in the customs declaration, listing 0 or I as the value.  Anything more incurs duties***

Hi Wilma.

Thank you for your upcoming parcel for Knit A Square.  :))

The customs note you can do at the post office, but please declare everything that is in your parcel as 'knitted squares for charity'....and put a zero value on the customs form, or a pound if your post office won't allow you to put zero. Please don't declare the hats as being hats, as they will then be classed as a 'commercial product' and Ronda will find herself paying fees when they arrive in South Africa. I know that may seem a little dishonest, but Ronda doesn't sell the hats, so it seems wrong for the posties to charge customs when they are for charity.  :((

I hope this clears it up for you.  :))

I always put "knitted goods for charity" on my parcels Bev. It covers a multitude of sins :)))

Thanks for the info, Joan. My post office can be a bit 'picky'....they won't even let me put a zero value, even though some members from the eastern states of Oz can, so I try not to give them any excuse to make it more difficult....lol.

Many thanks for getting back to me which is so kind and I I shall take your advice. Bev also responded.

Many thanks for this information which is extremely useful. I can now confidently send off the parcels.

Thanks again.

KAS supplied blankets, hats, handwarmers and toys to over 5,500 children in 2017.  If Ronda’s wishes come true, in 2018 even more children will receive the gift of warmth and love from around the world.

See how you may help!
