I think the Exmouth store is staying so you may be all right?

Ann, I was intrigued enough by Panters to look online. Is this bad news for you?

Sandra and I went to Hobbycraft today, thier own brand acrylic yarn is £2 a 100 gram ball, but they are carrying Womens Institute premium yarn at £2.20 per 100grams, but this is on a 3 balls for the price of 2 , whereas their own brand has no discount.

christinre I am not sure if panters is a west country chain they also sell clothes crockery and bed linen as well yes I know poundstretchers my nearest one is 11 miles away and an hours bus ride so I don't tend to go there that often

Comment by ann clements yesterday

also postal strikes hold up parcels as well,and they have had a very bad one just recently,

Comment by Brenda Ash yesterday
Hi Linda, yes, I do the right things! I don't mind too much because I like to think if they are stolen then maybe they still somehow get to children in need.( I put tee shirts and gloves in too).
I know poverty is a terrible thing, and makes people desperate, so I will carry on.

Brenda so glad you are continuing to send squares. It can be disheartening when your parcels don't appear on the list but it has probably arrived and the squares are already in a blanket keeping a child warm.

When I organize the lists I notice the UK always has a large number of Anonymous/unidentified parcels.  Your parcels were probably caught in this Anonymous pile....labels come off, new volunteers misplace the slips/forget to record the parcels.

I'm assuming you are including the Packing Slip with your parcels ?  

For those who aren't familiar with the Packing slip, here is the link:


Comment by Brenda Ash yesterday
I presume water is quite precious and blanket washing isn't a priority, it's just a personal choice for me. Having said that, at least 2 of my parcels never arrived, (they weren't on the list) last year so maybe using lenor or is too tempting!!!!! I will carry on though!

I just had another look at RKM. My favourites have been the Woolcraft Aran in lovely colours. It's strange how the same make varies from shade to shade - I love the colour of Matador, a really bright red but the nicest ones to knit with I think are Pink Marl and Kingfisher.

I've never heard of Panters Ann so perhaps it's a West Country chain? One name that came up frequently whenever this has been discussed before is Poundstretchers. Lots of us have to hurry past there (and my local branch is about 200 yards from where I live.)
