Welcome to the blogsite of the Tollgate Quilters Guild based in Durban KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.

We are a diverse group with a variety of experience and quilting related interests and it is hoped that this will come through in the postings. This blog will feature different guild members commenting on their favourite quilty subjects and we hope that you will enjoy the variety of opinions expressed.

We encourage comment and debate but please note that this blog is moderated.

International Quilting Weekend and TV shows

This popped up on one of my lists so enjoy the weekend watching quilting TV!

“In honor of International Quilt Day (March 17, 2012), The Quilt Show (www.thequiltshow.com), will "open" all of its shows from the first nine series--that is, from show 100 through show 913--for the entire weekend of March 16 –18. This means that—for three special days—everyone will have the chance to view these 117 shows, for FREE.”  Please feel free to share this information with all of your friends. It's a fantastic opportunity to enjoy three days of learning and fun without leaving your home…all for free.”
