Denise has been sewing everything from baby booties to wedding gowns for
over 35 years. While she loves sewing in general, her real passion is quilting.
Designing, piecing, and longarm quilting bring her as much joy as snuggling up
with a finished quilt!
Her love of quilting led Denise and her husband to begin longarm quilting in
2011. They opened a retail quilt shop a few years later. Selling Handi Quilter
longarms with Pro-Stitcher?, allowed them unlimited potential when helping
customers finish their quilts.
As a former Handi Quilter retailer, Denise has enjoyed the privilege of teaching
many quilting classes. She especially enjoys teaching Pro-Stitcher computer
classes, and adores playing with rulers!
Denise and her husband live in Southern California and are the parents of 5
children. All of their children know how to sew, and several of them also quilt!
Denise?s quilting studio space includes an HQ Amara? and HQ Infinity? with
Pro Stitcher. She is excited to be a Handi Quilter educator so she can share her
love of creating with fabric and thread. She firmly believes that if she can do it,
you can too!
