Welcome to the USA, Lina. So glad you will continue with KAS from this side of the ocean. There are KASers in the Princeton area and hopefully they will see your post. You can also post it on the Facebook page. I am just outside Philadelphia so not so far from you!
Thank you for posting Pam. I know this confusion is not helpful on any front. Let us pray that it will pass soon and all packages are accounted for.
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.
Hello USA KASers!
Just moved to the USA from Switzerland and looking forward to continue knitting squares on this side of the Atlantic. One question though : any KASers in the Princeton, NJ area? Already posted a comment in a related discussion thread, but just in case someone else sees this...Cheerio!
Welcome, Diana! We are so glad to have you with us! Go to the section above and click on Discussions. There are numerous sections you can read that will give you a wealth of information on mailing. The directions are pretty specific. You will find your customs forms at your local post office. Each package must have one. If the package is under four pounds, use the small form. Use the larger form if more than four pounds. But do go to the explanations above and read all the sections.
Welcome, Diana! We are SO glad you joined us. You will find the customs slips at your post office. There are two kinds. If your package is under four pounds you will need the small size. If your package is larger, you will use the larger form. There is a section on The Forum giving all the mailing details you will need. Scroll up to Discussions/Categories and look for the mailing section.
I am new to this...live in Central California and have a small package ready to go. I keep hearing about customs slips but don't see anything. I've got the packing list inside and the label for the outside. What else do I need? Anyone able to give me an estimate on cost to send to South Africa? I'm new to international shipping. PS So excited to be part of this awesome effort. Hope to improve my skills so I can add some other of the patterns to my packages. Thanks for letting me be part of this.
Yes, Kristie, it's now o.k. to send squares to Ronda.
How is the postal strike going? Can we mail squares to Ronda?
We must be certain to remember to give a round of applause and a salute to our KASsisters in the UK who, while we were raising money for our blanket pack goal in the US, had a blanket pack drive of their own to help Ronda and raised in the UK an admirable sum of 1,159 pounds. Hip, hip, hooray and well done!
