Pop in at “A Peace of Art” on Main Road, Walmer.

“A Peace of Art” operating from No. 85 Main Road, Walmer, has been busily on the go since 2005. They are stockists of a myriad crafty goodies for mosaicing, scrapbooking, beading, wiring, decoupage and pewter work etc. They use these crafts and arts as tools to assist people in realizing their endless potential, simultaneously incorporating the teaching of life skills. We popped in to have a cup of coffee and a cake at their wee coffee shop in the garden and we were delightfully surprised. A peaceful ambience filters throughout the well-maintained store with a buzz of creativity oozing from the craft workshop areas. We took a peep inside the Quilt Shop which is also on the premises and we were impressed by the variety of colours and designs available.

In their own words:

“We challenge people to look beyond the logic of the left brain to a deeper understanding of authentic creativity, thus no space is left for rigid steps to be followed. We specialize in personal and professional leadership working individually with every person. This makes the classes fun and relaxing where one can escape the day-to-day worries and find peace and tranquility. From kiddies programs to understanding of the deeper self through making a to-take-home craft/art work, these programmes are presented every day of the week as well as on Saturday mornings. We love people, so come and experience a “peace” of our (he)arts. Bring your troubles, let us mix them with paint and make good use of it, sending you home with a new outlook on the routine and stress of everyday life.”

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

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.
