Hi Carol, have you considered making a direct donation to Ronda in South Africa? With the donation the team could buy the yarn that they need.  It would save you the frustration of trying to figure out what is 'wool' !

You can follow the instructions [found in the introd] for sending rent money directly to Ronda from the Pay the Rent for a Day discussion     http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/pay-the-office-rent-for...

Insert ‘funds for yarn’ in the message area.

Using the KAS South Africa donate button has the advantage of getting the money directly to Ronda as quickly as possible. 

I hope this is helpful !

Comment by Carol F Metzger on Sunday

The latest newsletter mentioned someone donating yarn by having it shipped from a South African source. I'd like to do this, but I found the online shops confusing. They do not all specify if the wool is what we call wool, from sheep, or if it is generic "wool" that can be other fibers in "Britspeak." How do I know if I am getting a good value?

Thanks, Helen, for your organizing expertise!

Thanks to all our fabulous Nifty Niners for all your much-needed and appreciated donations.  What a tremendous help to cover a whole week!

You are the best!

Pam has just posted the following message in the Pay the Office Rent for a Day discussion.



Ronda has done her best to reconcile the USA Nifty Niners total, and, we think it comes to 7 days! So will book 7 days in May that need covering.

Well done USA Nifty Niners - one whole week paid for, brilliant!

Okay again I've been out of the loop a little here lately, thanks.

Hi Penny, please do not get overly concerned, over 6 years only about 5 parcels have knowingly gone astray. There was another go-slow in the South Africa Postal Service in March which hasn't helped the situation! Ronda will produce the April lists very soon.

I'm a little concerned that the packages I sent back in February are not showing that KAS has received them? I hope that my packages were marked correctly? If not I will help with any extra charges. The packages I sent contained Micah' s pocket pals, and several cuddles. If my package was refused can you let me know? I know it's a bit to ask.

Thanks, Pam.  I am so literal that  I have to see it in a definite statement. 

Comment by Pam Antink on April 27, 2015 at 6:20pm

Yes Maureen, that sums it up. $0 or $1 is perfect - any more than that means KAS gets charged and therefore looses valuable cash that is used to keep things running in South Africa.
