Kelsae Collars

Kelsae Collars

Sheelagh Milligan has been self employed for over 30 years doing dressmaking and clothing alterations.  She started Kelsae Collars 3 years ago after making collars for her two dogs......people liked them and said I should  sell them.

So now Sheelagh makes collars with matching leads and keyrings in traditional and quirky designs. They are made in her studio in Bridge Street, Kelso and are for sale there as well as at various events throughout the year and, of course, Facebook.

Ruth Bramble

Ruth Bramble

Ruth creates whimsical hand built figurative objects out of Stoneware. Her inspirations are generally drawn from the natural world around us - flowers, trees, the seaside, vintage fabrics, and antiques.

She delights in beachcombing for sand-washed items at low tide, and tries to incorporate the flotsam, such as driftwood, and rope into some of her work.

She is also passionate about rummaging through junk shops, and discovering old bric-a-brac objects to create various textures, and layering effects. Her favourite items are embroidered linen table mats, doilies, and wooden printing blocks.

Wood You Write With

Wood You Write With

A beautifully crafted pen is an ideal gift and for December and January one of our guest crafters prides himself on being able to offer everyone a bespoke writing tool.

Andrew Moyle, from Hawick, rediscovered a passion for woodturning a few years ago and now he is channelling his creative energy into making wooden pens.

His designs include a variety of ballpoint, rollerball and fountain pens, as well as pencils and gifts.

Products can also be made to order in a variety of shapes, colours and patterns.

He also works with acrylic and there are some vivid colours and textures available to choose from, guaranteeing that your pen will be unique and as fashion-forward as you dictate.

 All of his pens and pencils come complete with a presentation box and gift card informing you of its unique number and the materials that were used to create it, and have easily obtained refills such as Parker, Cross and Schmidt.
