Take over the Denyse Schmidt Quilts studio with a group of friends or co-workers for an inspiring day. Learn Denyse's intuitive Improvisational Piecing technique, while enjoying a completely unique, one-of-a-kind experience with your friends, family, or work colleagues. As a group, you will create ample blocks for a full/queen size quilt. After the workshop, we can take care of assembling the blocks into a quilt, quilting it and shipping the finished quilt to you for an additional nominal fee. All special events and parties can be "tailored" to your needs. Click here to see DSQ’s first group effort workshop quilt—a quilt made by many hands from over a year’s worth of Improvisational Patchwork classes. If you prefer to host the event closer to home, that works too! Email us to schedule an event, or to get more information.
