Workshops were planned for 2020, but these had to be postponed due to Covid-19.
Let's hope 2021 is a better year for all of us and we can plan to be creative together.
The ethos of the business is to re-use and recycle as much fabric as possible to create unique quilts and cushions. So I use tweed and tartan scraps from kilt making studios, end of bolts from mill shops.
My next venture is to explore the art of Textile Pictures and to use all those scraps of fabric that I save - nothing is thrown out.
I will be designing and making Textile Cards and Pictures to sell online in my Etsy Shop PlaidPerfect
Puffinpatchworks - An Heirloom in the making...

Hello! My name is Magghi Mclean and I set up Puffinpatchworks in 2010 in Edinburgh to design and sell patchwork cushions and quilts.
I now live in the beautiful South West of Scotland in Galloway and use mainly tweed and tartan to make uniquely designed quilts and cushions. Using this wonderfully textured fabric I am able to reflect the landscape and wildlife of Scotland.
I love teaching hand sewing skills and in 2019 I set up a series of workshops at the Glentrool Gallery and Craft Shop to do just that. The students had a go at Embroidery, Sashiko, Applique, Block Printing on fabric to finally design their own Textile Picture. Everyone had their own style and the results were amazing!
