Cross Stitch

Welcome to our website

Isle of Skye Crafts was started 26 years ago in a small room that was once the spare bedroom in our house just outside Portree.I worked there designing my Cross Stitch until 2011 when I realised I needed to move. Over those years I created so many designs, including Celtic, Castles, Maps, Highland Cows and so many more I ran out of space and at the same time cross stitch was not the most popular hobby anymore. So, I purchased Over the Rainbow in Portree and made the big move into the Village.

Isle of Skye Crafts @ Over the Rainbow

The move to the village and a huge shop was incredably exciting and huge challange. I had so many things in the shop that I really knew nothing about so I had to learn very quickly. I was able to increase the wool and haberdashery side and tailor the gift side. My creative side came right out. We now have some lovely Ruanas and scarves from Calzeat, and a wonderful selection of Knitware from Glencroft, including the best selling Baby Sheepskin Booties, as well as jackets and scarves from Lochcarron. There are also some lovely hand knitted shawls and scarves made by me. I also I have some lovely Ink paintings of Skye and Scotland that I have done in Black and White, and also there are some done in colour. my creative juces just keep flowing...........
