We always have wide selection of woven, knitted and printed textiles and fabrics here in the gallery. We are so lucky to have a great group of makers based here in the Borders with a great take on what’s on trend, sustainable use of materials and a sincere approach to our continuing heritage here in Scotland..
We hope you, your family and friend have coped during this time of pandemic and that you are all well. We have lost some relations and pals over the summer and have felt the soreness of not being able to comfort and grieve with people properly. Our thoughts are with them all.
We reopened the gallery and started up our Big Tree courses four weeks ago. A bit twitchy still, to be honest, but were all in it I suppose,Just try and keep as sensible and as safe as possible. We’ve had to decant about 200 folks into 2021. But we do have new course dates up as well.
We are going to see how it goes for the next few months, see if we get through winter without another spike and perhaps some more footfall. We have never had an online shop as such in the past - may look at that. Our customers however still prefer to see and touch the work in the gallery. We are working on a "scratch and sniff" app with a local IT programmer ! Not that you’ll be able to smell much through your mask !
So that's us back open every day 10-5 EXCEPT THURSDAYS. ( we have been open seven days a week for the past 20 years decided to have a day off from now on.)
Come and see us and give us your craic. All the best Eoin and Belen.
