Gill Biography – Gill Wiki
Gill is one of the home sewers on the eighth series of The Great British Sewing Bee on BBC One. She is a Public Health Intelligence Analyst in Doncaster. Gill first tried sewing when her husband bought her a machine three years ago – it was love at first stitch and she’s never looked back. She taught herself to sew, starting with a headscarf from a 1970s duvet cover (which she’s yet to wear out in public).
She would describe her style as “Audrey Hepburn-inspired, if you squint and don’t look too closely”. Gill makes clothes for herself and her two stepdaughters and she’s also made menswear including pyjamas for her husband and a three-piece suit for a work colleague. She’s even branched out to making a dog coat for her greyhound rescue Maureen.
Sewing gives Gill a break from her job as a public health intelligence analyst, but she insists that her love for numbers helps her in her sewing. “Analysing data daily, spreadsheets and sewing, it’s all numbers,” she told Great British Sewing Bee.
She is 44 years old.
