The past nine months have flown by once again. Chianto by Sheila continues to diversify its range of custom performance apparel with the addition of ballroom gowns to the portfolio. Chianto continues to provide custom design and production services for figure skaters, bodybuilders, fitness & bikini competitiors, dancers and gymnasts as well as a variety of custom swimwear and activewear.

Chianto by Sheila was proud to sponsor Skate Canada-Manitoba’s High Performance and Elite team uniforms for the 2012-2013 season. Congratulations to all those Manitoba skaters who qualified through Manitoba Sectionals held in Portage in November 2012 and to Kate Charbonneau who continued onto Canadians as a result of her finish at the Skate Canada Challenge in Regina this past December.

Chianto by Sheila was pleased to provide on-site seamstress services for the Skate Canada Challenge in Regina in December 2012 and looks forward to the opportunity to provide those services again in December 2013.

On April 27, 2013 Chianto by Sheila presented the second annual Chianto Award to Kate Charbonneau at Skate Canada-Manitoba’s 10th Annual Gala Awards Evening held at the Victoria Inn in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Unfortunately, Kate was unable to attend. This award is presented annually to the Manitoba senior level skater or skaters who have achieved the highest level accomplishment at a national level competition.

Chianto’s website continues to be a work in progress – additions will be made as time permits. As always, if you are looking for something specific, feel free to contact me at
