In 2013, Willim Kotzé opened the Vereeniging branch where he focused on machine sales, services and repairs. He also started Quiltsew’s quilting division. In 2015 he moved the Hazyview branch to Vereeniging as Johan and Magda retired for a more relaxed lifestyle and in 2016 Maria joined the shop full time.
