The KwaZulu-Natal Quilters Guild is a non-profit organization that will host the 18th National and International Quilting Festival in 2015 and therefore has to raise the funds to do so.

The Quilt Academy Workshops, held every second month at a nominal cost of R100, form part of the fundraising, as well as covering hall rental fees. The workshops are for all levels of sewers who now have the opportunity to learn many techniques taught by teachers with many years of sewing and quilting experience. These teachers offer their services for free otherwise the workshops would not be possible.

The Guild also teaches women and men from rural areas how to sew and use a machine in order to create work opportunities for themselves and thereby generate an income.

Quilt Academy Workshop dates for 2014 are:
January 18
March 29
May 24
July 26
October 4
November 22

The workshops take place from 09h00 to 15h00 at the Glenwood Presbyterian Church (entrance in Evans Road), Glenwood. Cost R100 per person. For more details as well as to book for the class and meals, go to
