Bowled over by colour, creation and technique at the Dias Quilters’ Guild Spring Show

The Dias Quilters’ Guild Spring Show has become an annual event in the lives of the quilters and this year the event took place in Walmer, Port Elizabeth in early October, giving members the opportunity of displaying the quilts they have made. The public had a chance of naming what they viewed as the best quilt on show-it could not have been an easy task! The creativity, the colours, the stories told in each piece… knocked our socks off!

The Dias Quilters’ Guild was founded in 1986 and has hosted National Quilt Festivals in 1992 and 1998. It is one of the five hosting Guilds for Festivals. Members are from the Port Elizabeth and surrounding area. Members receive monthly newsletters two weeks prior to Guild meetings. Regular demonstrations are held at meetings with guest speakers, vendors and comprehensive library for use by members. Charity quilts are made annually and The Spring Show is used as a public awareness programme to showcase the work produced by the members during the year.
