I would like to thank everybody who has supported the shop in the 5 years I have been open in Brundall. It has been a wonderful experience and I hope I have helped many people to start or continue their sewing journey.
Order received today, I am very happy with the fabrics. Thank you for a super service.
Hi thanks very much for the fabric, it’s really lovely. I’m amazed it arrived so quickly with the post being so busy at this time of the year.
Great service again! Here’s wishing a very merry Christmas.
Perfect. Thank You.
Just to say a fab thankyou for my order for the Moroccan Bazaar range which arrived safely this morning. I had been searching for ages for some of the out of print fabrics from the range. Your shipping was so quick too. Thanks again, Teresa
Thank you so much for sending me the fabric I ordered so promptly, so pleased with it.
The snowman panels came. I wanted to let you know they are even better than their pictures. Thank you for your help.
I am very pleased with the curtains you made for me, and thought that you would like some photos of them. Those of my friends who have seen them have been favourably impressed with them, and the quality of your work. Thank you once again.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for yesterday’s workshop. I really enjoyed myself and I am so pleased with my cushion.
Thanks for a great beginners course Gilly. Hubbie’s comment when I got home with my finished skirt was ‘wow it doesn’t look homemade!’ I’m taking it as a compliment!
I just wanted you to know that I’ve got the blinds from Sue and I’m absolutely delighted with them. Thanks for all your work. They will look perfect. I’ll send you a couple of photos once that’s done. Thanks once again…..I’m a very happy customer. Alison Keen
Great item and great service. Many thanks!
I would recommend Gilly’s workshops to anyone, she puts everyone at ease and is a really good teacher. I really enjoyed the course and will be doing more with her.
Good morning, just to let you know I have this morning just received my fabric order, the fabric is lovely and very good quality and well packaged, your service is fantastic and I would recommend to family and friends. Enjoy your day. Kind Regards Linda Taylor
Thank you Gilly I just loved the sewing cafe last night 😊 everyone was so friendly and put me at ease and as always you were lovely! All I have wanted to do today is sew! Thank you so much xxxxx
Great course for beginners. It definitely helped me to gain the confidence to try and make items at home. And it’s great to know Gilly is always there to offer help and advice.
Excellent service, thank you, lovely fabric
Hi Gilly, thank you so much for the beautiful dresser, you have made it into a stunner, I love it and so many thanks to you and your husband for bringing it round in the freezing cold.
Hi there, thanks so much for the patchwork cushion workshop yesterday. I really enjoyed it!
I would like to thank you for a most enjoyable and inspiring session (Tilly & The Buttons Denim Dungaree Dress Sewing Class).
I look forward to booking another course with you in the future.
Gilly has done an awesome job making us two sets of curtains. They are absolutely fantastic everyone who comes to visit mentions how fab they are. Thank you very much.
Hi Gilly – Thank you for a wonderful evening last night making the Christmas placemats. I really enjoyed the evening you are such a lovely lady and so helpful and patient. I really enjoyed the company of the other ladies.
Many thanks for the very prompt and efficient delivery of my recent order for 8m of Makower Spectrum Claret fabric. I have been searching everywhere for this colour but no-one else seemed to have sufficient in stock. I am delighted with my goods – and with your service. Thank you very much once again.
Best wishes, Pam
Thank you for my recent order of 2 metres of lilac stretch denim.
The fabric is of high quality and very substantial. The colour is vibrant and does not bleed when washed nor did it shrink. Stretch is minimal (which is great for me). Would recommend the fabric and the company. Thank You
I will also be posting a review on The Sewing Place forum recommending you to others.
Gilly is great, helpful and has a lot of knowledge and patience. Check out her workshops.
I went to GillyBee’s shop in Brundall for a sewing workshop. The workshop was run by two lovely ladies who are both very talented at sewing. I went along with 5 other children aged between 7 and 12 Using a needle and a sewing machine, I made a 5 flagged bunting out of fabric. It was an extremely exciting afternoon and I felt incredibly proud of myself and the bunting that I had made. As a result, I signed up for another course which is coming up soon which I am really looking forward to.
Hi Gilly, hope you’re having a good day. Just want to pass on our thanks for last nights course, both John and I found it very enjoyable. Your workshop and teaching are very good, and you definitely have some beautiful fabrics. We’re both looking forward to next week.
I thoroughly enjoyed this beginners sewing course. I have learnt sewing techniques that will carry me through my sewing journey. I met some nice people as well.
I LOVE my curtains, thank you so much. They hang so nicely and the quality of them is wonderful, thanks so much for your hard work!
I thoroughly enjoyed the course – Gilly was so patient and explained everything really well. The skirt I made turned out beautifully and I definitely feel like I could manage one on my own now!
Just wanted to say a big thank you for such a fun afternoon. I learnt such a lot and managed to produce something that quite surprised me given my total lack of artistic ability!
You made it fun and were so very encouraging to us all
Gorgeous fabric, great service and definitely recommended!
I just wanted to say that my friend and I enjoyed our Saturday sessions with you so much. We do plan to get together and book in some more so looking forward to the summer and can start looking at summery prints. Keep up the fantastic work and hope to see you and the lovely ladies in our workshop again soon.
