With midsummer shortly upon us, I’ve a few new pieces online. Holding onto my Roobedo values of practicality and longevity I’ve used preloved fabrics and you’ll find red gingham Cowl tunics – crisp and cool with handy pocket in the seam. Also sustainable organic cotton denim, used for oh so comfy peg top trews and the return of the Pinny. I bought one of the last pieces of linen from the very last mill in Scotland as it finally shut its doors forever in May. I have cut and stitched with the utmost care, a tunic in old white. Simple, pure.
Did I say Scottish Summer?
|A year round favourite, Harris tweed Dressing Gowns are perfect for early risers sipping coffee outside listening to the dawn chorus. And you can now buy a hot water bottle cover to match! Choose your own colour of hand-stitch yarn – my newest shade is pink, making me yearn for cowries and thrift! Coorie coats are naturally water repellent, a go-to layer for all weathers – I’ve tested them! For starlit nights by the fire wrap up in a bothy blanket or make it a centrepiece at your picnic. |
Events / Open Doors
CLOTH#21 is returning over 2 weekends in August and I’ll be one of the online exhibitors. And I’ll be taking part in Perthshire Open Studios 3rd to 26th Sept 2021. It’s 10 years since I took part for the first time and I’m delighted to open my doors for the whole run – why not plan a trip to the Highlands and drop in!
My one-to-one sewing lessons are up and running (these have proved great gifts) and a few new workshop dates are live with Make a Top and a Day of Stitch. Details online and email me directly if you’re interested – numbers are limited to keep it spacious and keep us all safe.
All my work can be seen online at roobedo.com. I am always happy to answer any queries on email firstname.lastname@example.org or call me direct 07814704256 and read more of my general ramblings in my blog here>>
Remember to make the most of the summer days, whatever the weather!
Best wishes as always,
