One family - hundreds of beautiful things .......

In this 140 year old building is where you will find a small family team designing and making a wide range of textile products. Click on the buttons above to go directly to our individual websites or continue reading to learn about all that goes on here.

If you can visit in person you will find all sorts of textile activities going on. Mother and granddaughter team, Ruth and Rachel work together in the family business Anna Macneil which was started by Ruth’s mother on the Isle of Lewis in the 1980s. We make a range of fashion accessories using Harris Tweed. These include hats and scarves, bags and purses, wraps and capes, wall hangings and cushions, keyrings and Christmas decorations. Everything is available to buy through the Anna Macneil website and we also offer a bespoke service.

Ruth also works with tartans, but in the field of Ecclesiastical Embroidery. She makes vestments and paraments for clergy and churches all over the world with her design theme largely Celtic inspired and usually incorporating tartan within her designs. Visit her Angelforce website for more information.

Rachel helps her grandmother much of the time but is also developing her own areas of specialism. She makes kilts for both men and women, and variations of the kilt style interpreted for women. She has a wonderful range of sporran bags which are available under the Anna Macneil label.

Ruth dabbles in many different fibre crafts but her passions are embroidery, weaving and feltmaking. At The Workshop she has a new 16-shaft floor loom with computer dobby and if there is a warp in place when you visit, she will be happy to demonstrate the loom in action. Ruth is also a feltmaker and often makes felt which she then embroiders in various ways to create wall art. She also teaches feltmaking and sewing. Visit her website Ruth Black - Textile Artist.
