We have now re-opened 

Our regular hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10am till 4pm.  Outwith these times we are happy to be open by appointment so phone or email if you want to arrange this.

There is hand-sanitizer in the porch along with a selection of masks for you to buy or borrow.  Only one family group in the shop at any one time please, but you are welcome to sit on our picnic bench while you wait, and if it looks like it is going to be a while we will come out and tell you.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

New Product....... Introducing "Brèagha", the latest addition to our family of hatsBreagha hats and pompom scarves

Mary has always liked hats with pompoms and wanted one to go with her lovely tartan coat.  So now we have Brèagha (that is Gaelic for beautiful, bonnie, pretty).   It is a sort of hybrid betweed our Morag style and our Eilidh, with the addition of a large pompom made with the same woollen yarn as the tweed.  It was a very successful experiment so we decided to go one further and make scarves that have pompoms on the ends.  We will be selling the hats separately (please email if you want one) but at the moment we are offering them as a hat and scarf set on our Special Offers page.   On  the right, Mary and Rachel are modelling the hat and scarf sets.

If you like the coat, why not have a look at our made to measure pages and get in touch. 

 

Newsletters

Very occasionally we send out a newsletter.  If you want to subscribe then click the little blue button in the top left of this page - or here .  This will mean you might get a newsletter once or twice a year.

 More useful perhaps would be to click on the facebook button and "like" our page as that tends to be where we post about things that are going on here, though even that is on an ad-hoc basis.

On the right is one of our buttoned wraps, teamed with an Angus hat.  You can just see some our our deep shoulder bags which are hanging on the wall, and the little toy dog is sporting one of our custom made dog coats.  The dresses on the rail behind are Mary's work - for more information on this, visit her website - www.lochdress.scot or come in and visit.      

On the leftRachel, Rachel is working her way through piles of Morag hats which she has cut out.   She only works with us a couple of days a week but she is getting to be very efficient and is a great help to us.

Below, Ruth is making some Callum hats.  We are really appreciating having the extra workspace though it is amazing just how quickly it fills up.  We are having to be quite disciplined about putting things away, and not having too many jobs in progress at the same time.

On these pages you will find information about who we are, where we are and what we do.  You can browse our online shop or look at pictures of our work. There is more that goes on at the Workshop - we have links to our other websites where you can find out about feltmaking classes, ecclesiastical embroidery or made to measure garments, among other things.  We also have links to shops that sell our products and other interesting sites, 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 a 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 £4 for a keyring to as much as you can afford for a large one-off wallhanging.

Privacy Policy

By now, anyone living in the UK or anywhere else in Europe is probably fed up to the back teeth with emails about GDPR.   In line with the new legislastion I have drawn up a privacy policy and it can be accessed from the menu on the left on the "about" menu button.  The important thing to say is that I don't share data with any other organisation and I only keep data that is necessary to conduct business with you - in other words, if you order something online, obviously I need your name and address so I can send it, but nothing is stored on this website, and I don't hold any financial information about you.
