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.

IF you are interested in keeping your creative brain going, consider signing in to QUILTING DAILY. This is a daily email article/page/few paragraphs/"newsletter" edited by Pokey Bolton, editor of QUILTING ARTS. There are ideas about anything and everything to do with contemporary quilting and sewing, ideas which could inspire and "enthuse" you. Even if you are a conservative quilter, you may just find some new ideas which can stretch you. If you are having a bad day and cannot face the page of inspiration, you can just ignore it or delete it. It need not become an intrusion, but can remain a few minutes of creative challenge and inspiration during a tedious day/night of work, chores, etc, when there is no time to get down to quilting itself. There is no charge whatsoever for this daily email service and you are not obliged in any way to order the books, magazines etc which are sometimes advertised. To get a taste of what is on offer, google QUILTING DAILY. Should you choose to subscribe, you can click on subscribe and follow on from there.
