About Us

The Jacaranda Quilters’ Guild was formed in 1998. Read more history …

Members come from all over the city and from country towns as far as Bela-Bela and Polokwane. The 19 home groups are widely spread around the Jacaranda area and a library with books, magazines and patterns is available to members. Three friendship meetings are held every year and the guild publishes 3 newsletters per year.

Our aim is to promote quilting and related textile crafts to interested persons in the Pretoria area.

The Guild is affiliated with the South African Quilters’ Guild.
