Welcome to my web site which includes a gallery of my work and my shop.

Paypal is the method of payment for purchases from the shop.

Enjoy browsing the photographs and let me know if you have any questions I can help with here is a link to my contact form

If you would like to have an item individually made in a specific colour or yarn please do not hesitate to be in touch. I would be delighted to make that special item for you.

I  exhibit my work in the Weft Studio in Pittenweem thanks to owner and well known teacher of weaving, Jan Shelley. Examples of my weaving are also available in Gracefield Arts Centre Craft studio and The Art Room within the Old School Brooke Street, both in Dumfries. The Mustard Gallery in Langholm and the 17 Reasons Gallery in Moffat also stock my work.

As a member of Handmade in Britain I exhibited in the Somerset House Arcade in December 2013.

You will also find me as Dorothy Stewart Handwovens on Facebook. I try to post there quite frequently so please come and visit the page and maybe ‘like’ it ! It is a public page so you do  not need to be a member of Facebook to view it. I post pictures of items on the loom as I am weaving and write short notes about the designs and the yarns.

Hopefully you will enjoy a visit to my site. Please feel free to leave comments on any of the pages in the comments boxes, it is always great to have some feedback on what I am doing.

I have been selected to exhibit at the Craft Scotland Summer Show in Edinburgh during August so please pay a visit to the lovely venue, White Stuff in George Street. The Summer Show is on from 1st to 23rd August. I will be there in person on Friday 15th and Tuesday 19th August. A wide range of crafts from makers across Scotland are on display and well worth a visit.

During the Pittenweem Festival from 2nd until 10th August I will be exhibiting in the Weft Studio, venue number 54 down by the harbour. I hope to be there in person all week and look forward to meeting regular visitors and hopefully some new ones too !

Thanks for visiting

Dorothy

      Hi Eva, how lovely to see you here ! Many thanks for your lovely comment about my weaving. I am not nearly as technical as you and I don’t play much which I know is bad !
      I think people enjoy the gallery but not many people buy scarves on-line, I think they like to see and feel them for real !
      Thanks again
      Dorothy

    Hi Dorothy

    I was wondering if you do custom handwoven baby wraps. I’m after a replica (or as close to it) of an existing wrap. I can send as many photos as you need
