Gigi Baay

New Orleans, LA

Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard

 

 

I met Gigi when I went to Uptown Needle and CraftWorks. They have days where you can bring your sewing machine and go sew.  She was there working.  I went because I had to make three (yes!) very complicated (for me) jackets for cosplay for my daughter and her friends.  I had never put in sleeves or made a jacket before. She was wonderful!  She previously had her own sewing business.  Now, she works at Uptown. She is also a quilter.  

 

Gigi is amazing.  She is positive, kind, and a great teacher.  She also was willing to join our Quilting Army.

 

Gigi went to Padcuah as part of our Quilting Army.  She is now running our first Sew-Along, the Gypsy Wife by Jen Kingwell.
