Dianne S. Hire

Dianne S. Hire, a 20-year transplant from Tennessee to Belfast, Maine, is an award-winning fiber artist, quiltmaker, teacher, lecturer, and international exhibitor. Dianne pushes boundaries! She inspires students to go beyond themselves to a place where they’ve been before.

About her jump to appliqué—it was something she really didn’t know much about when she began. She states, “My goal is to inspire creativity in much the same way as I’ve done for straight and curved piecing. The wonderful task of taking a traditional quiltmaking element to a slightly new design plan, bending toward a whole set of what ifs, and allowing minds to wander.”
