About us

The team

The boss Helen, of course loves knitting and all things hand made. She is colourful and full of exciting ideas. She is bubbly, passionate and warm and embraces new challenges with an incredibly positive attitude and with all her body and soul. She hopes through Haggis and Tweed to inspire more people to pick up their needles and get making.

Our creative director Caitlin (my daughter) designed the Tweed for our logo, makes many quirky stitch markers, updates our Social Media, all with an artistic eye.

Our artist Luca (my son) created Haggis, which as well as being our logo, will soon also be on sale as a badge and a greeting card.

Our checker Philip (my husband) loves order and keeps a careful eye on our stock, deliveries, orders, despatches etc. He is also our translator.

Our knitting guru, Varje, comes from Estonia and is a master knitter like her mother. She loves making shawls & socks.

Vicky our multi talented crafter from Sweden can not only knit but also crochet and sew to perfection. She has made our lovely project bags.

Finally our mascot is called Haggis and he loves to wear Tweed!
