Welcome to my crafty abode in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland where I knit, sew and crochet to my heart's delight :)

I live on the 'wild and woollie' East coast of the Isle of Lewis, surrounded by lots of sheep and beautiful moorland. Brought up in a Gaelic-speaking household, I have lived here all of my life. Here I love to make and design my textile creations - Harris Tweed features widely in my work amongst other fabrics.  A bit of vintage-lace doily will never go amiss!

I also enjoy traditional, domestic textile crafts such as sock-knitting, lace knitting and fair-isle work - I hope to feature some more of these crafts when I can - please keep looking for new additions to my range :) Stock will be added to my Etsy Shop as, and when, I make it!

Please use the Contact Page for any queries re my products or anything else you would like to know!  Or simply e-mail me at: handmadeonthecroft@btinternet.com.

Thank you for visiting - and happy shopping!
