I so want to get more money to KAS for distributions. I want to know how I can get some forum members to buy my Wool-Girl and the Balls of Wool books and cards on tassiestore.com and I will send them the books and send all of the money to Ronda.
Some forum members have sent me money and I send the books to the children and the money to KAS South Africa.
I certainly don't want to be in competition with the KAS Shop. Let's know your thoughts.
This is the latest info available re posting of parcels,as far as I know ........
"Tentatively we say yes, but one has to bear in mind that Africa is Africa! However, when there was the lengthy postal strike earlier this year - even with parcels piled sky high, nothing went astray. We have discovered our parcels are being diverted to another PO in Bryanston - please use same postal address for now!"
Can we send squares to South Africa yet? Thank you
POSTAL SERVICE SITUATION IN SOUTH AFRICA
Following the newspaper report from South Africa with regard the Bryanston Post Office, I asked Ronda if it was time to call a halt to sending parcels, here is her response:
To be honest I would say "yes", Pam - I am more worried about the current situation than I have ever been during any of the PO strikes ! Nobody seems to know what on earth is going on - the newspaper clipping sounded reassuring but I cannot see them being able to resurrect the Bryanston PO - not for a LONG time, anyway.
In the meantime we cannot seem to trace our parcels.
I will go to the Bryanston West PO again on Monday and let's hope they have something for us to open on Tuesday.
But given the levels of post that we were collecting during October, there could be a MASSIVE pile of KASpost SOMEWHERE in the pipeline !!!
Contributors may become understandably annoyed if we let them keep sending parcels at great expense, while there seems to be a possibility that we ill never get to the bottom of things now, and the system really does appear to have collapsed in certain areas already.
It's tragic that KAS is personally involved - many of the POs are operating, only a few have been allowed to lock their doors and literally go into hiding.
Not sure how you could word it - the whole thing is unbelievable, unworthy, bizarre !
THEREFORE, UNTIL THIS SITUATION IS STABILISED IT IS BEST IF EVERYONE STOPS SENDING, UNTIL WE ARE ASSURED THAT THE KNIT-A-SQUARE PARCELS ARE SAFELY FLOWING INTO THE HANDS OF RONDA AND THE TEAM. PLEASE CIRCULATE THIS MESSAGE TO ALL FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
Hi to All.....Important info, please click on this link......
Yes, Tricia, pretty hard to knit when the temps are in the 30's and 40's.
summer knitting can be a challenge with sweaty hands and all. I often switch to sewing for "dress a girl" but an excellent time to get end of season wool. Dont forget the Op shops, double bounty as you are donating to a cause at the same time.
LOL, everything 'comes back in fashion'....eventually.....lol.
HI Bev Jeffrey, no number 5, but first for this couple. This daughter in law has been the only one interested in hand knits, apparently they are very vintage
Sure is, Tricia....making a difference, one square at a time. :))
Is this your first grandbaby?
