Dias Quilters' Guild - Quilt Show 2022 Cancelled

It is with regret that I have to inform you that during a special virtual meeting held at 19:00 on 14 June 2022, the Committee of the Dias Quilters Guild, made a unanimous decision to cancel the Dias Quilt show planned for 5 – 9 July 2022.

The reasons for the cancellation are the following:

  • The National Quilt festival will be held from 4-9 October 2022 in Stellenbosch
  • Insufficient quilt entries for the DQG show
  • Insufficient bookings for workshops on offer
  • Vendors cancelling participation in the show
  • Post COVID pandemic with recurrent waves, economic challenges and current fuel prices
  • Unpredictable loadshedding and severe drought in Port Elizabeth

The committee further decided that the Dias Quilters Guild will host a Spring Show in 2023 and every two (2) years thereafter. 

A show will not be hosted in the same year as the national festival.


Workshops presented by Angie Weiswange, Erina von Gordon and Macky Cilliers will go ahead as planned, but with the venue changing to Skatkis Lap. 

Claire Wallace will present all her classes at Terrence Urban’s house.



We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience that this decision may have caused.
