Hello Voyager

Discover Scottish Crafts on the Grand Scottish Textile Tour

I’ve been thinking about Scotland this week. Romantic, vast green landscapes, cozy Shetland sweaters, heavy tartan blankets, and even vegan haggis (it looks awful, but is surprisingly tasty!). I’m thrilled to announce that we have a date for The Grand Scottish Textile Tour! We are heading over May 26 – June 4, 2022, and I hope you will join us.

To get you in the Scottish mood, I’m sending you two short videos to watch below. I love getting a glimpse of an artist’s process and these are two snippets into the life of craft makers. One features James Donald, a weaver based in Edinburgh.

Scottish Weaver James Donald stands at his worktable, which is filled with colorful woven creations.

The other is a feature on basket maker Catherine Davies, who makes her gorgeous creations out of willow, as well as creating a magical garden.
