2023 Winner Highlights: Kirsten’s Quilt

Kirsten’s Quilt in Hedehusene is our 2023 Regional Prize Winner for Denmark.

We asked Kirsten about her store, staff, and the impact of our contest.

Can we share some history about the store?

It started as an online shop in 2004 and then opened as a brick-and-mortar shop in 2008 to supplement the online shop. Today, it is basically a one-person-run shop.

The shop also has classes with local and renowned international instructors.

The owner, Kirsten, loves brights and batiks and works hard to provide customers with a great selection of quality fabrics (including a huge selection of batiks), threads, patterns, and notions.

Store owner: Kirsten Ekdahl

For those that have not seen the store, please describe it.

The shop is about 2,500 sq. ft., and the classroom is approximately 1,700 sq. ft. It is in the countryside (Hedehusene) close to Copenhagen.

The shop is on an old farm, where the stables have been converted to a shop, and the classroom is upstairs in the old hayloft.
