Dear customers, suppliers and friends,
As we come to the end of the year, all that remains is to thank you for your support and custom throughout the year.
This year, we added many new sewing products to our range, both online and in-store, and we hope that we can continue to supply fantastic products for you at competitive prices in 2018. Products included sewing kits, glitter fabrics and great branded products from the likes of Fiskars, Prym and Dylon (a comprehensive 2018 product list can be found here). We had an AMAZING response to our flash sales, where many of you saved in our online shop throughout the year- keep an eye out for the next one in early 2018!
2017 was a great year for William Gee in the media. We featured on BBC Radio London and several magazines and press articles, including a double page spread in Sewing World Magazine. We continued developing our mobile site, improved our checkout process, introduced an in-store loyalty card programme, and we even gave our shop windows – and warehouses – a big revamp to ensure that you enjoy coming into William Gee and getting a close-up feel of the products you love.

One of the biggest achievements this year was promising to keep our prices down. We do everything we possibly can to ensure your costs are as low as possible, whilst not compromising on service. Speaking of which, we managed to keep to a next-day delivery service on 97% of our orders, which we are extremely proud of!
