The SAQG is the National Guild of South Africa, is a non-profit association with 11 Regional Guilds represented and other quilting groups that are affiliated to the SAQG.

About the SAQG logo

The SAQG logo represents the link between the quilting guilds. See the ‘link’ in blue and yellow on a white background, with the triangle shapes above and below, in the colours to the South African flag. The SAQG representative in each region acts as a link to the main National Guild.
