I’ve had the pleasure of attending Linda’s workshops and I can absolutely recommend them. Linda takes an absolute beginner and helps them to produce a simple item such as a felted flower. These are a few flowers that I made in one of her workshops. I embellished one and turned it into a brooch for a gift for a friend and used the others to make greetings cards.

You can also take one of her felting landscape workshops in which she helps you to develop a beautiful landscape picture. This is the first one that I did which I later embellished on the sewing machine and added beads and hand embroidery too.

Linda has a workshop on the Mull of Galloway (not far from the Lighthouse) and I recommend you stop by and view her work when you’re in the area.

You can find out more about Linda, her work and the workshops that she runs on her Facebook page. 

EIDT: Dec 2017. I arranged for Linda to do a felting session with myself and fellow members of Ballantrae Crafty Bees recently and I made this. I just love it and can’t wait to find the time to get onto the sewing machine to finish it off!

There’s so much in the news regarding milk prices and I hope that the peaceful protests in Kilmarnock, Ayr and other towns and cities produce positive dialogue between the farmers and the supermarkets.

Here at Balkissock Lodge, I’m committed to serving local, regional and Scottish produce wherever possible witch is why the vast majority of milk, cream and other dairy produce bought is either Rowan Glen (Newton Stewart) or Graham’s (Stirling).
