10th Clarens Quilt Festival

Winter in the Free State means Quilt in Clarens. The annual festival has grown from childhood to adulthood. It is the only annual quilt festival in the Free State and has grown over the last nine years from 7 to 330 participants.

The festival has a unique relaxing character due to the locality and the personal touch to everything.

This year there will be 7 classes every day. The classes are small and students get lost of personal attention. It is the ideal get away for the beginner quilter and those that want to quilt in a relaxed environment. Weaving and spinning have been added to this years programme.

The festival feeds all the senses: we listen to New ideas; we view the 200 and more quilts; the environment feed the soul and we can touch lots of new fabrics and gadgets!! Soup and sherry is our daily meal.

The 10th festival is from 14 – 18 July 2015 at the Martie Lotz Hall. Quilting groups are welcome to visit during the day and to support the suppliers.

The festival offers quilting, knitting, Tunisian knitting and crocheting. The teachers at the 10th festival are: Marie Strydom (quilting); Liezel van Aswegen (quilting); Louria Blignaut (crochet and Tunisian knitting); Dana Biddle (creative knitting and quilting); Julian Venske (quilting); Rove Mittermaier (quilting); and Glennis Brooke (spinning and weaving).

Kwilt in Clarens – 2015

Winter in die Vrystaat beteken Kwilt in Clarens

Kwilt in Clarens is ‘n ervaring vir al die sintuie – die luister na nuwe idees en tegnieke voer die oor; 200 kwilts bied ‘n fees vir die oog; die stilte en rustigheid van die omgewing voed die siel en die voel en vryf aan nuwe lapppies hou die hande tevrede. Die liggaam word gevoed deur warm sop en sjerrie.

Die 10de Fees is vanaf 14 tot 18 Julie 2015 in die Martie Lotz Saal in Clarens. Die fees word gekenmerk deur ‘n rustigheid – slegs 100 persone kan per dag geakkommodeer word.

Die fees sluit ‘n verskeidenheid van kwilt, hekel, brei en afgaanse hekel in. Die program bied iets vir elke kwilter – van beginners tot gevorderd. Vir navrae kontak Alae Randlehoff by 082 5772232 of e pos quiltinclarens@gmail.com.
