Black Harris Tweed on loom

Highland Wool Festival

Saturday 24th May.

We have a stall at this event - a "must" for anyone interested in wool and wool products.  There will be stalls selling all sorts of things from fleeces for spinning and felting through to finished products.

In addition to our stall, I will be teaching a class in Celtic Knotwork Embroidery. This class will run from 10am to 12noon.  booking is essential, so please visit the Highland Wool Festival website to book your place.  At the class you will learn how to design a simple Celtic knot and to embroider it with hand stitching using wool yarns on felt and tweed.

Art Around the Firth

13th to 22nd June

We will once again be participating in this event - a trail around the Beauly Firth taking in several artists studios and galleries.  Visit their website for details of other venues and opening times.  During that event we will keep our normally opening times, except that on Wednesday 18th June we will stay open until 8pm.  Half-hour drop-in feltmaking sessions will be on offer throughout the week.

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.
