The KZN Quilters Guild hosts four large quilt shows on an annual basis.

These shows showcase quilts designed and quilted by various quilters throughout KZN. The events aim to raise awareness of the craft. The guild also invites various speakers from within the community to give talks on various topics. The last meeting’s speaker was from the Alzheimer's Association, who explained how and what a sensory quilt would consist of, in order to keep their patients’ five senses active.

“This is how we give back to the community,” says a Guild spokesperson. “There are shops/merchants selling their goods, as well as demos throughout the morning. We have many visitors and all proceeds towards fundraising for the 2015 National and International Quilt show.”

Shows in 2014 take place on March 8; May 31, September 6 and November 1.

The shows take place from 09h00 to 14h00 at the Durban Girls High School, Glenwood (in Penzance Road). Visitors fee R35. For more information contact Pauline Law on 082 806 9149 or email on
