The April 2013 Square Heart Award goes to:
Valerie Zalewski of Saint Vaury, Creuse, France
Valerie joined KAS just this past June 2012, and has already distinguished herself in many areas, especially at her efforts with
In her postings she describes her efforts to find new contributors to KAS in her area. It’s not always easy, but Valerie forges ahead, and is making progress! She has participated in a Christmas Craft Fair, had a radio interview, was interviewed for an article in the local expat paper “Creuse News”, and spoke at the local Anglo-French association, l'Entente Cordiale. Through these activities she has found new people interested in helping KAS, and I am sure she will find more!
As she says, “I sometimes feel I'm becoming obsessional about KAS, but I really think that it is necessary that I do everything I can to bring more people to make squares and things.”
These items include squares, cuddles and hats.
You can see photos of her creations here:
Valerie is translating the KAS patterns and other information into the French language – a huge job for which KAS is very thankful.
She is also an active participant in the forum, encouraging and complimenting other members.
Thank you so much, Valerie, for everything you have done and continue to do for KAS!
