I would like to wish all my customers a
Happy New Year.
I have been spending the holiday season away from the sewing machines. Mostly I have been in "domestic mode" cooking meals for millions of people, changing bedsheets for the constant stream of overnight visitors etc. But in between all that, I have been sitting a the computer working on the new Anna Macneil catalogue for 2009. I hope to have it completed within the next two or three weeks when it will be uploaded to the website. This year it will be in two different formats - an interactive one which you can explore within your web browser and a simpler one that you can download and print off.
Prices are having to go up - the cost of Harris Tweed has risen sharply over the last year and my other costs are rising too, so I can't absorb these increases. However, until I get the new catalogue completed, you can order at 2008 prices.
The photographs are of a scarf I made recently. It is hand made felt made as a lattice, with the fringe tassles incorporated into the felt. I made a matching scarf ring which fastens with a small magnetic catch, and also a co-ordinating brooch. More details will be on the website soon.
