Dal Botha has been quilting for 26 years. She started out as a traditional quilter concentrating mainly on hand-, rather than machine work. She is an accredited quilt teacher and regional quilt judge with the South African Quilters’ Guild.
Dal has lived in various countries around the world and has been involved in quilting in each of these. She has benefitted greatly from exposure to different cultures and has gathered experience in the use of varied techniques from contact with international quilters. She utilises these in her relatively new venture into fibre art and enjoys the challenges of breaking free from patterns and creating original work.
She has participated in exhibitions in South Africa and Singapore and her work is in private collections both in South Africa and abroad.
