Now is the time! Entry fee per quilt has been reduced to R150 in all categories

We encourage quilt-makers at all levels to exhibit the great quality and range of work that they can produce. You may enter up to four quilts, either individually or as part of a group.

PRIZES can be won in all categories.

Every quilt entered will be ON DISPLAY during the festival, inspiring visitors and evoking great pride in all those quilters who have work on show.

SAQG has modified the rules and categories to make it easier to compete.

      • There is a Youth Category.
      • You may now pay someone to do work on your entry in the Collaborative and Group categories.
      • In the Open category you may enter a quilt that you have made:

        • that you started in a class
        • is a replica of an antique quilt
        • using computer-digitized quilting
