About Denise

Denise-Wild-LoveSewingMeet Denise Wild! Denise started sewing at the age of 13, and took it from hobby to career in 2004. That’s when she launched North America’s largest sewing school (while working as a magazine editor at Canada’s largest fashion magazine), eventually opening multiple locations in Toronto and New York City.

Just ten years later, she sold her company to the global leader in craft publishing, F+W Media. Denise is also the founder of LoveSewing magazine and the founding editor of BurdaStyle US magazine.
