Hi Laurie!

I joined the group last week and need to learn the "ins and outs" also. I am approaching it as an experiential learning process where I will make a few errors but that one step at a time I will learn. Welcome! And, maybe we can learn together.

Did I just join the US Group? I need "road map" for this site. I don't know what I am doing!!!!!

Welcome everyone!! So happy to see you on here. Thank you for participating in this wonderful project. The children will greatly be blessed by your work (as well as you will too).

I'm excited to be a part of such a concerned network of crafters working to make the world a safer place for children. I look forward to the journey we all will take together to accomplish this.

I figured out how to join the US group...yeah. I found out about KAS from the Lion Brand site a few months back and sent some squares with plans to do more. 8 x 8 so easy to do and when I see the photos of the children, I realize how something so small from me can help bring big smiles, but more importantly warmth to them.

I have a fairly strong connection with an Arts Council in my area and I am considering talking to the Director to see if I would be allowed to use their facility to have an event for Square Circle. Any suggestions?

Just returned from a mission trip to a village, Malale in South Africa. The pictures of the children on your website remind me of the children we worked with- and makes me miss them! My heart is with Africa and knitting is wonderful therapy. Looking forward to continue with the squares and possible hats and sweaters. We can attest it does get cool in South Africa at night! Thinking about starting and teaching some knitting classes for South Africa- if the timing works out! God Bess you for starting this project.

It is true that this is a huge learning curve. As soon as Kyla and I find out more about the intricacies of how this all works we will post a sort of general instruction. It is useful to know whether messages are private or public as you mention below Paulette. So great to see some of the familiar names in this place too. I hope this builds and builds.

I hit ADD COMMENT too soon. There was another message from you with my regular e-mail.

Paulette, this comment is still visible on the US pages...but I'm glad you mentioned that the x deletes things. I just added a comment, but didn't click on send to group. I think the moderators are learning how things work along with the rest of us. Rhonda

Comment by Paulette Pronk 15 hours ago Hmmm....I am not sure what I did correctly so soon but I see my picture by members....please help keep me in the loop so I can catch on...I love crocheting for the children....HUGS Paulette
