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.

Yesterday Deborah was able to come and help me catch up with some GillyMac tasks. For a long time now, one of my very happy places has been sewing here with Deborah.

Stabilising your quilt is the first step when we move from learning a design to sewing it out on a quilt. It is a super useful way to get started and you learn so much about your quilt as you do it. I have written a guide to stabilising a quilt in this week's blog. www.gillymacdesigns.com/2021/06/how-and-when-to-stabilise-a-quilt/ ... See MoreSee Less
