Welcome Margaret. You will love it here. I have bought the Bendigo wool too it is beautiful. I was lucky this week to find some good oddments of wool in an op. shop. Bev in WA will keep an eye on you from Australia.

Hi everyone, I am new to the forum. I live in the country and don't have a local wool shop so I purchased pure wool from the Bendigo Woollen Mills at $12 for a 200g ball. If you spend $60 there is no postage payable.I think this is good value. I have knitted my first 10 squares in Beautiful Blues. Just got delivery today of variegated wool for this months challenge and look forward to seeing how it knits up.

Hello all, I joined last week after meeting the lovely ladies at the Bendigo Wool show! I'm wondering if there is anyone in the Ballarat area who would be interested in having a local group?

Thanks, Joanne!  Very soon I will be adding a KasShop board to our Pinterest page.  My hope is, that by adding Pins of the various items we offer, some non-Kasfolk will feel a heart tug and purchase something even if they never make  a square or become members. We need to find as many ways as we can to bring more $$ into KAS

What a great idea to have a Pinterest page. Well done!

Thank you Maudie!!!  The more followers and re-pins we have, the better it is for KAS

Thanks Anne. I am now following all boards and I have repined a beautiful photo of the little girl with the doll onto my Wool-Girl board.

Hi Jennifer.

Here is another fundraising success  from Elaine (in Tassie).

 http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/high-teas-for-raising-f...

Also some of the ladies from the US and Canada hold fundraiser days through their church....and please do let us know if you have any successful fundraising events as we are always looking for ideas to help meet the postage costs.  :))

Comment by Jennifer J Sharman on June 17, 2014 at 3:36pm

Thanks for suggestions for postage fund-raising. We will see what we can do and let you know how it goes. Any other ideas would be welcome.

What do others do for postage?
