Note from Pam:

This week another 10 parcels had to be returned for re-assessment because people had placed values such as $50 on their parcels - South African Customs are desperate to raise funds and the bill for these ten parcels was assessed at $1300 ($105.50) - if these parcels do not come back with a reasonable assessment, they they will have to remain with SA Customs, who will most likely dispose of them, which would be a shame, and, a waste of some kind-hearted person's effort & postage.

Knit-a-Square is so strapped for cash, we simply cannot pay for parcels that have these estimated and inflated values!

Please tell as many people as possible the need for  the change of the parcel declaration to "BONA FIDE GIFT FOR CHARITY - NO COMMERCIAL" that needs to be on the front of all parcels, and, please please do not add a value of more than "I" on parcels - preferably "0"

We talk about giving “67 minutes for Mandela” every July 18.  Could we make it a donation to Pay the Rent this year instead?

Looking at the July, August and September Pay the Rent calendars we see more green (unpaid days) than pink (paid for days).  Ronda really needs our help over the next few months.

I know many of us are a bit short of cash right now, but if you are able to donate $10USD  (or more or even less), please sign up and become a  MANDELA MAMA

I  just posted my first Christmas squares in the July theme.  I thought my fellow Canadians might be interested in how they came about..  They are made with yarn purchased in Grande Prairie, Alberta, created in High River, Alberta, photographed in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and destined to be mailed from River John, Nova Scotia to the children in South Africa!

Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian KASsisters!  What a beautiful country we live in.  Each province has its own special charm and I feel very fortunate that I was able to see a little bit of each one throughout my journey.  

Also, thank you to each one of you who took time out to visit with me as I went through your area.  I arrived home on Tuesday morning with so many very special memories ... and I just can't wait to do it again! xo

Plusieurs membres de Knit-a-Square ne reçoivent pas les messages envoyés en nombre à tous les membres via le service  courriel du forum.  Nous avons essayé d’apporter une solution à ce problème sans succès.  Les changements à effectuer doivent venir des membres eux-mêmes plutôt que par le système Ning.

Les envois en nombre ont tendance à se faire stopper dans le filtre qui bloque les indésirables (spam). Si certains messages du forum ont ainsi été bloqués et vous souhaitez recevoir les messages de Knit-a-Square dorénavant, veuillez suivre la procédure ci-dessous :

  1. Débloquer les messages indésirables de  Knit-a-Square
  2. Ajouter l’adresse de Knit-a-Square dans votre liste de contacts. (mail@forum.knit-a-square.com)

Si le problème ne vient pas du filtre des messages indésirables, veillez à changer l’information sur votre page profil.

Have you seen the new MedLemon video about the Blue Scarf Project at


Ladies - let's get as much mileage out of this video as possible!

After you have watched it, please "Like" it.

If possible, leave a comment. You need a Google account to do this. If you don't already have one, signing up is easy - just follow the instructions that come up when you try to leave a comment and they ask you to sign in to your account.

This is a great video, but there is no way to easily find out more about Knit-a-Square because there is no contact information.

It is up to us to help this video go viral and to draw people to our website and to the forum. Any comments you can think of about your involvement with KAS and how satisfying it is, would be helpful. Also a thank you to MedLemon will keep them happy.
