Hi! My name is Alannah and I am the sole person behind Gilby's Threads! I am a wife and mommy before being a business owner. I am married to my wonderful supportive husband, John, and together we have our beautiful daughter, Mila. Oh, and can't forget my fur pug baby, Bea.
I started Gilby's Threads (formerly Gilbys by Alannah) in October 2013. I have sewed on and off for 16 years and I thought turning my hobby into a business might work out for me. Thanks to a good friend who pushed me to take this leap of faith, Gilby's Threads was created. It has been full of ups and downs but at the end of the day, I wouldn't trade it for anything and I can say that I love what I do.
The company originated when my grandpa passed away in May 2013. He bought me my first sewing machine over 10 years ago and has continued to inspire me to do what I love. I named the company in memory of him (Gilbert turned into Gilby) and seeing a part of his name on every item I make makes me feel like a piece of him is all over the world.
I put a lot of hard work and dedication into every item I make and design. I love seeing pictures of my stuff on other people's kids. There isn't anything better than seeing your works of art being worn by people all over the world.
Thank you for taking the time to learn all about Gilby's Threads!
