About

An Heirloom in the making

Tweed and Tartan reflect the landscape and people of Scotland.

My Granma taught me to sew when I was about 8 years old and I've been sewing ever since, but it was only when my children were born that I discovered and fell in love with patchwork.

My children are all grown up now, but what started as a hobby soon turned into a business. Since setting up Puffinpatchworks in Edinburgh in 2010 the business has gone from strength to strength. From new design ideas to teaching, I will embrace any change that engages people with fabric and patchwork.

I first started using Border Tweed in my quilts and cushions a few years ago after a customer was looking for a good home for a stash of tweed she had found in her Granny's attic. In exchange for this tweed treasure, I made a 7' square quilt that keeps them warm in winter and adorns the wall in summer.

The stash is nearly gone, but I make trips to The Borders to various mills to source scraps. I also use off-cuts of tartan from kilt makers in Edinburgh, which was why PlaidPerfect was set up in 2018 to make all things tartan. I've started small with the pincushions, but I've too much tartan not to go larger!

I hope you like my designs and who knows what you will see over the next few years...

Thank you from Magghi Mclean
