DENISE STEWART has had an avid interest in many
kinds of needlework since childhood, and is especially fond of sewing.
She gained her early sewing skills at her mother's knee in her native Jamaica, and earned a Bachelor of Science
degree in Home Economics – Clothing and Textiles in 1985, at Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, Tennessee.
Denise learned to quilt in Fayetteville, Arkansas in 1986, where she served as
Secretary of Quilters United In Learning Together (QUILT). In
1989 while a member of the Belle Pointe Quilt Guild in Fort Smith, Arkansas, she began teaching quilting
classes using quick piecing techniques.
After settling in Columbia, Kentucky, in 1990 with her husband Jay,
she joined the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society and has served this
organization as President, Vice-President, Fund Raising Chairman and Long
Range Planning Chairman.
Denise has taught many quilt workshops at the annual KHQS Getaway and
for various affiliate guilds. She has also given instruction for the Kentucky
Extension Homemakers Association all over the state of Kentucky, mostly involving sewing.
She is currently offering
classes at her sewing studio in Dunnville, Kentucky for small groups of quilters who
want to get away to concentrate on their sewing.

Thread That Runs So True” in my
life has always been sewing. My
earliest memories include watching my mother and grandmothers stitching
clothes for my three sisters and me. I
can remember collecting the scraps to make doll’s clothes, or just to put
them into my “stash”. The stash filled
a box under my bed for many years until the summer of my senior year in High
School, when I cut all the scraps into hexagons for a quilt (still a “Work-In-Progress”
twenty-something years later). I completed
my first quilt the year after I earned a B.S. degree in Clothing and
been involved in quilting for twenty-one years, including teaching, judging,
serving in Quilt groups, quilting-for-hire and hosting quilters’
retreats. I find great joy in
selecting fabrics and working out the puzzles of construction, and I
especially enjoy sharing my hobby with others.
to be “spoolin’ around” for a long time to come.
