A few months ago, I had some lovely people from Sweden visit me. They were working for a magazine and the photographer, Anders G Warne, sent me one of the pictures he took which I thought I would share with you. This was the first time my tweeds had ever taken a trip to the beach!
I was also a contributor on the programme Grand Tours of the Scottish Islands, which was shown on BBC1 on Monday 7th Sept 2015. It was an interesting programme but there were a few inaccuracies. For a tweed to be Harris Tweed, it has to be hand woven within the Outer Hebrides and all processing of yarn and tweeds, has to be done within the Outer Hebrides too – not just Harris. Also, my loom shed is at the back of my garden, not on my croft and I’d love to be weaving six hours every day – I’d certainly clear my back log quite quickly, but the reality is, I don’t. I’m only weaving part time at the moment.
