Gill holds a weekly program of classes for adults and children and also offers one-to-one tutoring.

Gillymac Design Classes

The program of classes is updated regularly and whilst classes are often sold out quickly, Gill encourages you to contact her to discuss what is coming up and how she can assist you with your sewing goals.

Adult Classes

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.

1-2-1 Tutoring

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.

What My Students Think

It’s always great to receive feedback on my classes

"Absolutely love classes with Gill. They’re a lot of fun and Gill is a fab teacher, giving as much help as is needed. She is inspirational and I love looking at all the other projects she has on the go! I attend her regular Friday class as well as some of her workshops. I learned loads on Gill’s free motion classes, loved making the tuffet, the bags, piped cushions and a mixture of modern and traditional quilt methods. Highly recommend Gill’s classes!"
 “My daughter and friend have just started Teen classes with Gill, and they are loving it. They are hooked; they have such a lovely time – chilling and sewing. And I was so impressed with the finished zipper purse she brought home on her 2nd lesson!!! Wow. So glad we found the classes.”
“Just starting my fourth sewing class with Gill. I have learned so much in a few months. Gill is a knowledgeable, kind and fun teacher. I have done both dressmaking and quilting and I can’t wait to do more. I highly recommend taking a class with Gill. ”
“Gill is such a fabulous teacher with a funny sense of humor that makes being in her classes a real pleasure to all her students xx !"
“This lovely lady did a Summer Doodle Challenge, which was sewn up into pictures at the end of each week. Fabulous site. Learnt such a lot and had so much fun. I can now do curls, swirls, bricks, meanders, wiggles, stars, feathers and much more. Highly recommend Gilly and her website”
“I have just spent a very enjoyable, mentally stimulating summer following GillyMacs Doodle Challenge. 2018. Excellent teacher, very patient, and encouraging. Highly recommend.”
“Gill is a great teacher & makes everything seem achievable!"
“Love the classes and have learned how to make a tuffet, free motion quilting and can’t wait to do my dress making course next week."
“The challenge has been a fantastic experience. I am not a quilter, although I like machine embroidery, but this has given me so much confidence to take this further. Excellent teacher, facilitator, and encourager. In fact, all that you want in a teacher-thank you”
“It’s Gilly herself who’s such an awesome teacher, listener and caring soul. I had the pleasure for a weekend, learning the block “Storm at sea”. She is so talented and explains each move in a way you’ll remember. Excited about her club. ”
“Online courses with GillyMac are beautifully paced with clear visuals and instructions. GillyMac is a gem, she is calm, easy to listen to and totally supportive of all levels of ability. I didn’t know GillyMac before I started my first course but kinda got to feel like a friend. Fabulous FB support and interaction too! I learned much more than I came for. Thank you Gill ”
