Behind the scenes AW16 photoshoot  I thought that a behind the scenes photo of our new collection photoshoot would give a taster of what's to come.  Despite the monsoon-like rain that we have been having here in the North East of Scotland for the last few weeks, we managed to get out to the beautiful dunes of Balmedie beach for our Autumn-Winter 2016 photoshoot. It was great to see our new designs coming to life on models Amy and Callum who did a fab job through shine and rain! I'm looking forward to showing you the final results in a few weeks time when we launch the new collection. With thanks to John for his photography skills and to Laura who produced a natural make-up look for Amy and also took this image.

The view from Blair What a great time we had at our pop-up-shop at Blair Castle FEI European Championships last week.  The largest pop-up we've had yet, we were able to launch our new winter 2015 collection which received a great reception. We even had room for a clearance area which proved very popular. We were delighted that so many people appreciate that our collection is made in Scotland and uses natural, high quality materials...the smell of "real wool" was commented on by many!  If we met you at Blair, welcome to the website!

fresh ideas   Every spring time The Croft House is a hive of activity as we work on our new collection. I love this creative process. Pouring over beautiful shades of yarn as we mix and match colours for a new scarf pattern. Choosing between wonderful samples of Harris Tweed fabric. All set to the whirr of a sewing machine as we trial new product ideas.  Watch out later in the year to see what we come up with!

Holly Festival We’re delighted to announce that we will be holding a Christmas pop-up shop on the weekend of the 13th and 14th December.  The location is at the National Trust for Scotland’s Drum Castle at Drumoak on Royal Deeside. We will be located within the castle as part of Drum’s “Holly Fest.”

If you are in Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire, why not come along between 11am-4pm and enjoy the fun?  This family friendly event has lots going on.  As well as lots of gift-buying opportunities there are holly wreaths made from holly from the Drum Estate, the Elves toy factory and other activities for children.

 

We hope to see you there!

Haddo 14 This weekend we brought The Croft House to Haddo House, a National Trust for Scotland property near Ellon, Aberdeenshire. For a November weekend the weather was glorious with lots of families enjoying the grounds.  It was great to meet those of you who came along and to see some familiar faces.  We often have items at fairs which aren't currently available on our website.  If you can't find what you are looking for just use the contact page to get in touch and we'll try to help out!
