“We specialise in knitted home accessories and some for people too! Designed and made in Scotland we offer unique designs and a made-to-order service. Made using Scottish yarns and locally sourced fabrics.” Black Rock Textiles
From the website: “Working from our studio, we take inspiration from the small pleasures in life. From tiny shells found on the beach to big skies. We find inspiration around us every day.”
“Our knitting and crafting group meets at ‘The Hospitium of the Grey Friars’ in Inverkeithing, locally known as ‘The Friary’, the best surviving example of a friary building left in Scotland.”
Who can resist these cheerful fellows?
“The group is free to all. The group’s aims are to encourage knitting and crafting and bring the community together.”
“I make hand crocheted items for babies, children and women. Mostly accessories, including hats, scarves and booties. All of my crocheted items can be made to order in a variety of colours, and to the suitable size. I will be taking orders on the day of the Arts and Crafts Market.”
Additional interesting information: Samantha will be introducing sample pieces soon based on original vintage crochet patterns from the 1960s. This collection will be available on a ‘made to order’ basis only.
