As a committee we are working hard to make this quilt festival an experience beyond expectation – one that will show and inspire the diversity within the quilting community and excite visitors to broaden their own quilting horizons. As COVID forced us to make some changes and reduce risks, we have decided not to host any international teachers for this festival as travelling to South Africa is very uncertain.  Sad, but thank you for understanding. Luckily we are blessed with many good local teachers!!
