Our regular hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10am till 4pm. Outwith these times we are happy to be open by appointment so phone or email if you want to arrange this. We will also be open on Saturdays 5th and 12th December, 11am till 3pm.
There is hand-sanitizer in the porch along with a selection of masks for you to buy or borrow. Only one family group in the shop at any one time please, but you are welcome to sit on our picnic bench while you wait, and if it looks like it is going to be a while we will come out and tell you.
We look forward to welcoming you.
If you are ordering by email or through this website, then the sooner you place your order, the better the chance of receiving things in time for Christmas. We will be closing for the holidays on Tuesday 22nd December, but for items to be posted please try and order by 15th at latest - even sooner for overseas orders.
We have now been wearing these tweed facemasks for a few months and they are standing the test of time. They have to be hand washed, or in the wool cycle of the washing machine and they can't be tumble dried, but they are very comfortable and now that the cold weather is here you will find that they are lovely and warm to wear, while still being breatheable. We are making them in both fine wool and silk tartans in addition to the Harris Tweed ones. You can see full details on our special offers page - click here. We can make them in any colour and provided you order at the same time, can make them to match any item from our range.
Very occasionally we send out a newsletter. 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.
In addition to all our Anna Macneil products we also have Mary's tartan corsets and dresses (for more information on this, visit her website - www.lochdress.scot ) and Ruth's ecclesiastical work for more information on this visit www.angelforce.co.uk ) or come in and visit. Occasionally you may find Ruth at her loom weaving tweed. There are all sorts of different things to see if you visit The Workshop.
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 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.
