Scottish Summer


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!   

New Workshops

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  I am always happy to answer any queries on email 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,
