Diane Rose, theamazingquilter.com
Program: Sewing without Sight
Diane is the only known totally blind quilter. Vision-impaired with glaucoma all her life, Diane became blind as a result of an accident in 1984, a mere four days before she was to undergo a cornea transplant. Not only has that condition not slowed her down, Diane has used it to serve as a means to motivate others to achieve their true potential. "The way I look at it, if I can do what I have done without sight, how much can you do?" Her quilts hang in the homes of many famous people including George Bush and Dolly Parton.
No Workshop but Friday will be a sew day for silent auction items.
