Cats and quilts go together and, along with their associates, Tollgate Quilters Guild aim to prove this with a fun one-day exhibition of Cat-related and other quilts and wall-hangings at the Glenwood Presbyterian Church hall complex on June 22.

This is the culmination of work by members of the Tollgate Quilters Guild, Queensburgh Quilters Guild and the Cloud Nine Textile Art group. For those who love cats, don’t miss it. The event also provides a great opportunity to find out how to start patchwork and quilting.

Tollgate Quilters Guild and Queensburgh Quilters have been part of the quilting fraternity in Durban since the 80’s and both meet in the evenings.

There will be demonstrations and vendors selling quilt-related equipment and fabric. There is an entrance fee.

The exhibition will be open from 09h00 to 16h00 on June 22 and the Glenwood Presbyterian Church Hall complex is situated at 339 Esther Roberts Road, Glenwood, Durban. For more information about Tollgate Quilters Guild visit
