Christmas Shopping

We will be trying to ensure that we fill all online orders placed before 15th December in time for Christmas.  We usually have to make things specially - I think people must be able to spy on our stock and choose whatever colour we DON'T have!  If you choose something we already have made up then you may be lucky but it is safer to try and do your Christmas shopping earlier.

Craft Fairs

We still have two craft fairs before Christmas. We will have a stall at Brodie Castle for the last weekend of November - 29th & 30th.  Not only do you get a chance to see and buy lots of lovely craft made products, but the various stalls are dotted all over the castle giving you a chance to explore parts that are not normally open to the public.

We will also be at Eden Court in Inverness - 5th to 7th December.  These two fairs are both run by Exclusively Highlands.

Latest Tweed

Last week I finished weaving a new tweed - it is now at Carloway Mill for washing and stamping with the Harris Tweed Orb mark. See picture left. I am not sure how quickly I will get it back from the mill - it just depends how busy they are, so I can't promise anything made from this selection in time for Christmas.

 

Shetland Angels

On these pages you will find information about who we are, where we are and what we do.  You can browse our online shop, find out about our feltmaking classes or look at pictures of our work. We have links to other interesting websites, including how our main fabric - Harris Tweed - is made. 

We use technology that spans the centuries - from a 100 year old Hattersley loom for weaving some of the tweed we use through to state-of-the-art embroidery machines and laser cutting machine.  But we do low-tech as well!  Everything is hand finished and we are often sitting with piles of hand-sewing to do.

Visit our online shop pages to see our full range of products - wraps, capes, cushions, wallhangings, bags and purses, Christmas decorations and more.  Prices range from as little as £3.50 to as much as you can afford for a large one-off wallhanging.
