The South African Quilters Guild is very proud to present a Travelling Quilt Exhibition entitled Inspiration, showcasing a collection of quilt art that will leave viewers utterly inspired. The exhibition will be on shown at the Oliewenhuis Art Museum from 6 to 22 April 2018. These beautiful quilts are diverse in design, rich in the use of colour, fibre and threads, stitched with boundless creativity and imagination and blended together in harmony. The exhibition will also showcase the finished quilts from The Pan-African Friendship Quilt Challenge which invited quilters from different African countries to be ‘twinned’ with each other. Each set of quilters produced two quilts – each quilter working on her own quilt and then swapping with the other thus adding to the design and increasing the size.
The South African Quilters’ Guild was founded in 1989 at the 3rd National Quilt Festival held in Bloemfontein and has been the co-ordinating body of quilting in South Africa since then. The SAQG is the national guild of South Africa, a non-profit association with 11 regional guilds represented as well as other affiliated quilting groups.
The Oliewenhuis Art Museum is located at 16 Harry Smith Street, Bloemfontein and is open to the public from Monday to Friday between 08:00 and 17:00, and on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays between 09:00 and 16:00.
