Dias Quilters’ Guild was founded in 1986 and is based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa
We are affiliated to the South African National Quilters’ Guild.
Our current membership stands at 170. We have members from Port Elizabeth and surrounds and always welcome new members.
Our goal is to enjoy and share our love of quilting.
Our guild has proudly hosted National Quilt Festivals in the past, the last Festival, “Siyadala” was held in 2017.
The guild meets monthly on the 1st Saturday of each month from February to December. We meet at Victoria Park Grey Primary School, 1st Avenue Walmer, Port Elizabeth at 14.00.
We welcome visitors who will pay a Visitor fee of R30.
It is important to note that all meetings are currently held in line with strict Covid protocols and numbers are controlled according to prevailing Lockdown restrictions.
Spring Quilt Show:
We annually host our Spring Quilt Show in September/October. Sadly due to the Covid pandemic, this will not take place this year.
We are however happy to advise that we will be hosting a “Virtual Spring Quilt Show”. All quilts entered in the show will be exhibited on the website from Monday 4 October, together with all the prizewinners.
