More Information

We not only get to admire the wonderful creations of the members and to indulge in the library of quilting books, but we make sure every meeting is an opportunity to learn new skills. Our mission is to empower women so that they are able to reach their personal best.


Although Mary Espinell and Mathea Dirks started inspiring the ladies to do some quilting in 1983 already, the Flamboyant  Quilters guild was founded in 1991 by Mary Espenel and Mathea Dirks when Janet Hossack came from Canada to do a workshop in White River.


The name was changed to Lowveld Quilters Guild a few years later.


We have members from Barberton, White River, Nelspruit, Malalane, Badplaas, Sabie, Hazy View, Lydenburg, Komatipoort, Graskop and Waterval Boven to attend our monthly meetings every second Saturday. Our meetings are held at Macadamia Village Hall.During these meetings we have demonstrations done by our knowledgeable members, but it is also an opportunity to chat with likeminded people and to support the vender of the day. Members can indulge in an extensive library during meetings.


We are proud to announce that two of our members are doing the teachers accreditation.  A lot of hard work and dedication lies ahead for Jacky Arcel and Nanette Cox.


We are lucky to have Malinda Neto that does the Junior challenge at the Festival. Her students have always reached the top 3.


We make sure every member receives a newsletter once a month as this is our way of communicating with our members.


Our aim is to expand our membership and we welcome all hand workers. Our annual fees are R200.


We aim to empower and encourage the ladies to reach their ultimate goals.
