Denise has been with Hamels for over 18 years. She started off teaching classes many moons ago but these days she takes care of the figuring and cutting of all our Block-of-the-Month programs, Quilt Clubs and the majority of the kits we offer. On more than one occasion Denise has been heard reciting Queen lyrics “Another One Bites the Dust” when she’s completed packaging a new set of quilt kits for the store.
Denise has been sewing since she was 12 years old. Her sewing space is an extra bedroom in the house that has been vacated by children that have grown and moved on. Currently her favourite technique is Englsh Paper Piecing so it’s no surprise her most highly recommended quilting accessory is her Kay Buckley’s 4″ Perfect Scissors which work perfectly for cutting out all her tiny fabric pieces when she is working on her latest EPP project.
Besides quilting her hobbies include scrapbooking, cross-stitch, camping, spending time with her grandchildren and more recently her new pet piggies Wiggles and Giggles.
