Galleries and Events

Additional Ready to Ship galleries are up as well as the beginning of Chianto by Sheila's Custom Work Gallery. It's amazing how many photos are collected over the course of 20 years of custom design work including everything from bridal and formals to competitive performance apparel.

That's right Chianto by Sheila (and Chianto Crafts and Clothing) celebrated 20 years of custom work on May 1, 2018. Watch for rotating specials during the remainder of 2018 and into 2019. Also keep an eye out for competition specials - Chianto by Sheila will be set up in the vendor area at Skate Winnipeg's Summer Open competition July 28-29, 2018 at the Dakota Community Centre South Rink in Winnipeg - vendors will be located in the gymnasium on the main floor.

Cha Cha Dance Dress

The initial photos in the Custom Work gallery exhibit only a small sample of the variety of custom performance apparel designed and produced over the past 20 years. Custom work is created based on a client's music, a theme or element idea or something as simple as a colour scheme. All design, development and production are completed by Sheila in Chianto's home studio. See Custom Designs to start your custom order.

Two new Ready to Ship galleries have been added this month - first up is the Women's Skating Dresses. All dresses have been designed and produced in Chianto by Sheila's Winnipeg studio. Each dress is only available in the size indicated as all Chianto skating dresses are one-of-a-kind creations. Sizing and measurements are included with each dress description. Dresses are shipped as pictured - additional crystals or embellishments may be added. Contact for a price quote on additional features.

Sleeveless Dress
Hockey Fleece Blanket

The second Ready to Ship gallery is comprised of polar fleece Blankets and Pillows with a variety of sport, activity, Canadiana and themed appliques. All products are designed and produced by Chianto. Blankets are perfect for watching events/games at those cold arenas or on the sidelines of your favourite field. Both items make excellent gifts for your favourite athlete, coach or sports enthusiast. Special orders are available in team or club colours as well as other sports and activities - please allow additional time for production of special orders.
