About

Art School Drop-Out turned craft addict . . . turned maker/designer :)

I work from my home in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland where I'm surrounded by beautiful panoramic views of moorland and sea. Whilst bringing up my children I've been combining my small home-based textile crafts business with a part time clerical/admin job which keeps me disciplined and perhaps a little more organised than I would otherwise be!

I've been selling my handcrafted wares online for a number of years now and have also sold locally and at craft fairs. I'm proud to create well made and original items which are handcrafted with care in my home.

"Everything I sell is handmade by myself - I'm a 'one woman band'!" :)

Born and raised on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, I briefly attended art college on the Scottish mainland but soon returned to the islands of my birth, where I felt more inspired to live and work.

Harris Tweed is one of my favourite fabrics - I love the depth and richness of this beautiful woven fabric which originates from this part of the world. I'm also passionate about traditional, domestic crafts such as sock knitting, lace knitting, fair isle work etc, and am constantly trying to update my skills in these areas.

Always happy to respond to any enquiries about my products so please feel free to contact me!

    I'm a self confessed fabric and yarn addict from the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Taught to knit and sew by my mother as a child, I've always loved to experiment with different fabrics and textures. I'm in my element surrounded by tweed & yarn! x
