From The Angel to Fairies

Hello, and welcome to the new blog from us here at The Hebridean Design Company.

Over the coming weeks and months we will be posting regular updates about The Hebridean Design company, ourselves and our life here in Harris. We hope these will be of some interest to you, and if there is something that you would be particularly interested to hear about – please get in touch and let us know?

A husband and wife team, we moved to the Isle of Harris in October 2015 after over 20 very happy years living in North East England.

During this time we had very different careers – Doug as a Manufacturing Engineer and myself as an Operating Department Nurse. We started holidaying in Harris 15 years ago, and soon realised that we wanted to spend more and more time here. This led to us buying our home 12 years ago, and from then we spent all of our spare time here – visiting at least 5 times a year throughout the seasons.

Little did we realise last October that the next 14 months would see us start our own successful machine embroidery business! We cant thank all of our lovely customers enough for helping us get this far so quickly and we can only hope that 2017 is as kind to us.
