Denise Dowdrick

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 the 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!
