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.

There is so much detail in Nina's work. I love the plants and foliage - they add great depth to this piece. Her pals in the sewing group think this is too magnificent to be a table runner and should be displayed on a show. This was a project started as a series of free classes earlier this year. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•#gillymacdesigns #gillymac #freesewingproject #sewing #quilting #collagequilts #janome #janomeuk #janomemakes ...
