Socially, aesthetically, politically, emotionally, artistically, philosophically - quilting thoroughly satisfies the soul, it is a means of communication, a spiritual and psychological bonding between makers. It is a means of story telling, a chronicling of histories, a series of tales of human love and sadness, triumphs and sorrows. It is an art. We can learn a great deal about quilts and their making by studying those that were made by generations before.
My name is Diane MacLeod Shink and quilting is my passion.
Recently retired as a Home Economics teacher, I now spend my time
teaching quilt making, restoring quilts, appraising and researching
historical quilts as well as making new ones for family and friends. In
1988 I founded the West End Quilt Guild in Montreal West, Quebec,
Canada where I currently live. I am a Quilt Appraiser certified by the American Quilters
Society (AQS), and a member of the Professional Association of
Appraisers-Quilted Textiles. I am qualified to appraise and set values
for insurance replacement or market value of quilted textiles.
