Diane Rose to Speak in Cullman
Diane Rose, the Amazing Blind Quilter, will be the keynote speaker at the Patriotic Luncheon, on Thursday, June 30, 2011 at the Cullman County Civic Center, beginning at 12 noon. She will also speak at a special meeting of the Heartland Quilt Guild, that same night, beginning at 7 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church in Cullman.
Diane suffered from glaucoma at an early age and became totally blind in 1984. With the help of a friend, she took up quilting in 1998. She considers her blindness, like her friend singer Ronnie Milsap, an inconvenience. Diane also cooks, does ceramics, and travels by herself. Because of her determination and wonderful attitude, she says, “I don’t like sitting still and doing nothing.”
Tickets to the luncheon are $25 and proceeds go to the Good Samaritan Health Clinic. The cost of the quilters meeting is $10. For more information, call 256-775-1389, ext 3 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
