The MACS Quilt Challenge Yesterdays News – Tomorrow’s Promise will run in the Schreiner Gallery at the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg from December 12 to February 10.

This unusual exhibition was initiated by artists from the Midlands Arts and Crafts Society (MACS) to artists and crafters to make a quilt with a difference.

The Tatham Art Gallery has invited artists and crafters to repeat the challenge by making A4 size quilts using interesting and innovative ideas, ranging from paper to metal. The theme for this challenge is Yesterday’s News – Tomorrow’s Promise.

Submission date is October 31 and the quilts can be submitted at MACS House, 23 Haldane Road Pelham Pietermaritzburg, between 09h00 and 16h00.

There is no entry fee. Participants need to give their name, contact details, title of work and selling price. For all artworks sold, a modest commission will be divided between the Tatham and MACS. Each quilt must have a hanging mechanism. There will be no selection. However; spatial constraints may force the Gallery to exclude some of the work.

For more information contact Kobie Venter at 033 392 2819 or Jutta Faulds at 033 386 6500. The submission form can be requested at
