Meet the Kilt Makers
Amanda, truly the godmother of the Kiltmakery. Amanda owns and runs Scotclans with her husband Rodger they have we have gathered a massive amount of Clan and Scottish Family information to help you discover your Scottish Heritage. They have travelled around Scotland to see endless clues to our history, castles, graveyards tell tales, some obvious, some hidden only being revealed as layers are pulled back. They have put together over 400 Clan & Family areas where we have maps, galleries and have gathered stories and news. And on top of all this she is also one of the top kiltmakers.
Nikki, one of our time served kiltmakers. She is also our very own font of knowledge when it comes to the history of the kilt and tartan giving very informative and entertaining talks on the subject. Nikki is also the Kiltmaking instructor here at the kiltmakery she has the pleasure of teaching all the lovely students that come through or doors and for some reason never want to leave.
Siobhan, A recent addition to the Scotclans team. A stunning hand sewer making her another one of our amazing kiltmakers. Along with Aga she is also a tailoress, specialising in designing, making and cutting patterns. She is an instructor at the Kiltmakery, giving lessons on measuring and pattern making and using sewing machines.
Julie, is one of those natural kiltmakers from the second she picked up a needle we knew she was going to be one of the best. She is also a very rare kiltmaker. Up until very recently it was generally accepted that left handed people could not make a kilt. Well she showed you.
Michelle, a beautiful hand sewer and our very own Highland Dancer of the Kiltmakery. Being in the Scottish Highland dancing industry for most her life gives her an edge in her kiltmaking. You may recognise her from the Scotclans website as she is our resident model.
Wendy, a beautiful hand sewer who in a former life was an architect so she is so precise with her measurements to the last millimetre. Her attention to detail is phenomenal. We are so lucky to have her as one of our kiltmakers.
Fiona, another amazing hand sewer whose kilts are perfection. She is also use to working with her hands as she is also a physiotherapist. Which is great as she looks after all of us here at the Kiltmakery making sure we’re stress free.
Lena, an absolutely beautiful hand sewer, knitter and crocher (and makes amazing chocolate cakes) there is no end to her talents. She has a calmness that you can see in her kilts. We are so lucky to have her as one of our kiltmakers.
