and Sewing Tutoring
Sewing is a wonderful skill
and a great way to spend time.
I have classes for regular sewists as well as beginners, from junior school age upwards. There are many opportunities to sew with me in person at my studio in Maidenhead on weekly classes and specialist workshops. I run an educational sewing blog as well as very popular Facebook and Instagram accounts and a YouTube Channel.
The sewing classes at GillyMac Designs range through patchwork, quilting, dressmaking, bag making, and homewares. Similarly, the children and teen classes make the most amazing items for others, themselves and also to enter (and win) national competitions.
Once you have attended class you will be invited to join the uplifting online GillyMac Club where you can learn more from me and take part in our regular sewalongs and demonstrations.
Follow a GillyMac Project or if you’d prefer, bring your own projects to work on.
Junior and Teen Classes
All the Junior and Teen GillyMac classes encourage an appreciation of textile art in many forms.
Most clients want to focus on improving a specific skill or they may have a new machine and would like to go through all of its functions.
Gill is an award-winning teacher, who teaches from her studio in Maidenhead, England as well as nationally at the Festival of Quilts and other events each year. Gill splits her time teaching weekly classes to children, teens and adults and designing new projects to share with her sewing community in person and online.
GillyMac Designs Sewing Classes are a warm friendly environment equipped with the latest tools to help you succeed with your sewing goals. Gill teaching style is relaxed and informative and her studio classes are always fuelled by her home baking.
Once you have taken a class with Gill, you will be invited to join the free GillyMac Club. The club is an uplifting community of home sewists who meet in person and on line to share projects, tips and pictures of their creations and to learn further from Gill and each other.
When sewing with GillyMac your confidence in your own ability will grow whilst Gill helps you achieve each of the sewing goals you have set yourself.
