20th South African National Quilt Festival


For the first time we will have a shop at the National Quilt Festival of South Africa.

Read below more on the festival.



INTERCHANGE – threads connect. South Africa holds a national quilt festival every two years, in different cities around the country.


This will be the 20th Festival, to be held in Gauteng from 17 to 23 August 2019. The venue is Heronbridge College, Fourways, Johannesburg – on the border between the two big cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria.


The Festival is ‘by quilters for quilters’ and proudly hosted by the Golden Rand Guild for Quilters and the Jacaranda Quilters Guild.


This is where quilters from all around the country get together, as well as from abroad. We celebrate quilting in all its forms: enter your work in the national competitions, view magnificent quilt exhibitions, learn from workshops and lectures, and shop for all things quilting from South Africa’s specialist retailers.


Stay with us for the week or visit daily.
