about dancing flower crafts

Made with love for and from the Outer Hebrides

About us? We would much rather talk about the spectacular Outer Hebrides, but here is a little bit About us. Dancing Flower Crafts was born from a passion for creativity lead by inspiration from the natural world. Our Home is the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.

The Outer Hebrides is a magical place; it is wild, rich in wildlife, culture and history, breath taking landscapes, peace and tranquillity, and there’s no place on earth like it. It is inspiring, challenging, wonderful and part of us.

Conservation, countryside management, outdoor recreation, community and environmental education is my background and the sector I worked in for many years. My love of the outdoors is the source of my inspiration for my craft designs, and when I’m not sewing I’m outside exploring the magical Hebrides.

I design and make all my own crafts, and I rarely make more than one of an item. Harris Tweed® is much more than a cloth, it is steeped in history and every fibre is part of the Hebrides. Harris Tweed is a cloth which deserves a lot of love, care and attention to create unique crafts. 

We are very mindful of environmental issues and where ever we can we do not use single use plastic, wrap our products in recycled materials, use biodegradable postage bags, reuse cardboard boxes and we use as many locally sourced materials as we can.

We have two little Westies who love nothing more than running at full speed across the beaches of the Hebrides.
