Siyadala Quilt Festival

19th South African National Quilt Festival
Presented By
Dias Quilters' Guild
Port Elizabeth
3 - 8 July 2017

Welcome to the official website

Members of the Dias Quilters' Guild will welcome quilters from near and far at the beautiful premises of the Collegiate Girls' High School, the same venue which was used for the 1998 and 2006 festivals in Port Elizabeth.

The biennial Festivals are the meeting place of friends and likeminded souls. The aim of the dedicated Festival Committee is to host a festival for quilters by quilters. The Festival week will be filled with exciting workshops, interesting lectures, exhibition of spectacular competition quilts, fun filled evening functions and endless shopping at the vendor's stalls.

The most exciting news is that The Tentmakers of Cairo will attend Siyadala - We Create, their first visit to a South African National Quilt Festival. More news about their participation will be posted at a later stage.

As information becomes available, it will be posted on the official Facebook page 2017 South African National Quilt Festival, Port Elizabeth. Please "like" this page to be informed of news immediately.

Although the Collegiate High School for Girls offers excellent facilities for our Festival, it unfortunately does not cater for the needs of the physically disabled. Both the hostel and the school are double storey buildings with only staircase access. The Committee can be approached should you have special needs and we hope that we will be able to accommodate you. No smoking will be allowed in any of the buildings.
