Over the past 25 years, she and her husband Rob, a teacher in Ajax, have been Whitby residents and have raised a son and daughter. Denise is a partner in Kutaways, a company that makes custom outerwear for people who are wheelchair bound. Denise has always enjoyed working with children, in both sports and creative arts, and watching them develop and achieve success. She has had as many as 48 children enrolled in her sewing classes and has seen many children graduate from the program.

Esther Campbell has been a Whitby Fabrics employee and a teacher in the Junior Sewing Academy for many years. She, her husband Paul and their 2 children are longtime residents of Whitby. Esther moved to Canada as a teenager from Yugoslavia where she had learned to sew as a young girl. Her father was a tailor in Yugoslavia and she often helped out by removing the hand basting in men’s suits. She graduated from Sheridan College in Oakville as a graphic designer illustrator and worked in this field for 12 years until moving to Whitby. Esther loves fashion and design. Her creative ability and sewing skills have proven to be a wonderful asset to both the store and the Junior Sewing program, where she has watched with pride as many of her young sewers have graduated and continued their sewing while pursuing higher education.
