    Inspiring and heart warming story of an incredible woman, she reminds me of our dear late friend Karen who was just like Diane, no challenge stood in her way.

    I’m sharing this with EVERYONE at my quilt group. We have several new members who are new to quilting. I think this will inspire them.

    Thanks SO MUCH for posting this.

    I agree, what a woman. How blessed am I to actually see the things I make. Very inspiring and humbling.

  6. What a remarkable woman and a truly inspirational story!

    My mother has been blind for the past 10 years and I have seen what the loss of sight can do someone. While my mother can no longer sew, or quilt due to her Alzheimer’s, I sit her down by me and still have her join in my quilting fun. And because of her, I am now an ardent supporter of making quilts for the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative, in her honor.

    I feel so very blessed to still have my mother, my own sight, and the gifts of my hands, and my heart to make quilts. But watching this video tripled those blessings!

    Thank you, Quilting Diane, for blessing us with your joy, your faith, your deep inner vision, and that fabulous attitude!

    I have spent a day at the beach in York Maine last week . I also took a sew as you go quilt class Saturday with Diane.
    Diane Rose is every thing you see on video. She is the real deal. At the quilt class people could not believe she was blind. She was sewing by machine,chatting with her blue tooth at the same time. She had a chance to try a long arm and she did great!
    I was so thankful that her friend Donna Viau from NH brought her to Maine so I could meet Diane!
