Community

It’s great to sew, but often you will want
to sew in the company of others.

At GillyMac Designs there is an uplifting community of fellow sewists who meet regularly in classes and online. Our Facebook and Instagram pages are full of the latest projects, tip and a dedicated post every Friday shining the spotlight on a member of our community. In addition, if you take part in a GillyMac Class, have been to one of her talks or taken part in an online challenge, then you will be able to join the GillyMac Club on Facebook. This is a closed group where there are regular Sew-a-longs, demonstrations, ideas, and patterns and even more importantly you will get to meet and stay in touch with fellow sewing enthusiast online.

Below you will find some of the latest pictures from our super active and very friendly GillyMac Sewing Community.

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.

Creating simple quilting diagrams gives everybody some ideas to get them started ... I really like to provide this for every class I run - otherwise it feels like the teaching is only half done.

Phew! I haven’t quilted with a walking foot in ages ... but I was asked to do this one on my domestic machine with a walking foot.

This is the Quilt this term for my Weekly Classes.? The quilting video and notes I’ve just made are for them. My Sweet 16 makes things so easy, but of course, the classes can’t access it at the moment 😷. It was good to go back to basics.. BUT I’m definitely going to make another of these and enjoy some improv free motion all over it !

Video and notes released to the weekly Meridian team in the next couple of days 💕

Estelle - this was for you 👊🏻
