Oh dear..... Christmas is coming!
Over the next two weeks we will be concentrating hard on bringing the website up to date with lots of things for you to buy. Whether you are looking for little stocking-fillers or something special for your loved one, we will be able to help. If you don't see exactly what you are looking for, why not phone or email? We may well be able to make something specially for you and can often manage quite a short turn-around.
Postage - around the world
We can post any of our products to anywhere that has a postal service. The only limitation is weight as there is a limit of 2kg for airmail and all other methods of shipping are ridiculously expensive for small packages. To give you an idea - we could post you up to eight scarves in one parcel, or two of our cosy Hebridean Hoods, or one custom made coat. We are happy to give you a quote for the postage. Our prices on this website include postage within the UK. For overseas orders what we do is charge you the difference between the two postage costs and we send you this as a separate invoice.
New Product....... Sporran Bags
Rachel has designed and made some lovely new bags. These can be used as a shoulderbag, as a sporran or as a clutch bag. Each bag is fully lined, has an interior pocket, a magnetic catch and a detachable long strap. They can be made either with tartan or with Harris Tweed - or a combination of the two. The bags are trimmed with real leather.
The price is £115 including postage within the UK. You are welcome to call into The Workshop to see them.
In the past I have very occasionally sent out a newsletter. From now on, I am starting again with my mailing list as much of it was out of date. 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 left, 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.
