The Sewing Studio

Magazine editor Denise Wild started out teaching her friends to sew, and before long she was teaching her friends' friends. Her network of students led her to create The Sewing Studio, which now proudly teaches the seamstress arts in New York and Toronto. She and her staff impart methods for bobbing and weaving colourful threads through linens, taking students from beginning steps to advance endeavours such as creating their own skirts, handbags, and party dresses. Denise and company lead lessons in a bright and intimate classroom setting, helping participants learn to alter their own clothes or re-create treasured designer duds by hand. The Sewing Studio also nurtures aspiring fashionistas through after-school programming and week-long intensive sessions. Over the course of five days, guests can brainstorm, sew, and model their own garments or drop by for a workshop on creating dresses and kevlar body armour for American Girl dolls.
