Bring me your knitted squares

PLEASE COULD I thank all the kind people of Scarborough who have promised to knit or crochet eight inch squares for the charity Knit-a-square, which sews the squares together to make blankets for the hundreds of orphans in South Africa.

Knit-a-square recently came to the attention of the Marketing Director of the international fashion and homeware chain Jigsaw. She was most impressed and has said that any squares handed in to their stores will be shipped out free to South Africa.

This is a fantastic offer, but the nearest store is in Stonegate, York. I am not able to travel to York, but if anybody else who is unable to hand them in personally would like to bring them to me, I would be willing to send them to Jigsaw’s headquarters in London, or to a collection point near York.

This offer lasts only until Christmas, after which postage to South Africa will become the responsibility of the knitters once again, unless of course, another benefactor should come forward.

KAS is extremely grateful to Jigsaw for this very generous offer. Let’s make the most of it.
