Hi Wolf Pack!

Hi Wolf Pack!

I’m Isla, administrator at The Make Den, shop manager of The Woven Wolf and lover of all things crafty. My interest in sewing and design started when I was young, copying outfits from Archie comics in grade school and chopping up thrifted clothing in high school. When I was 20 I decided to learn how to sew for real with the help of Irene Stickney and The Make Den team.

Since then I’ve started a vintage clothing company, and began working for the team that helped me learn how to sew. Working here has allowed me to create everyday, and refine my sewing skills from some of the best teachers in the biz.

Stay tuned for updates about things I’ve made in class, student success stories, and crafting alongside our video tutorials, and more.

I can’t wait to share my passion with you!

The Woven Wolf takes years of experience from our team at Toronto’s Make Den Sewing School – and brings it to the larger creative community through amazing interactive online tutorials.

We are making it as easy and fun as possible for people to learn a new skill from anywhere at their own convenience and pace.

Some people feel like sewing is a skill which is out of reach and too complicated to learn on their own. Our goal is for The Woven Wolf to change that, as a fresh, clean and concise improvement on out-dated and confusing instructional videos or books.

Our classes will appeal to anyone from a complete beginner to a master craftsperson with the most comprehensive and relevant online sewing packages available. We provide easy to understand demonstrations and explanations, plus tons of downloadable resources to enhance the learning experience.
