Ar­gyll Tapestry - the fab­ric of suc­cess

The Oban Times - - Feature -

Lizzie Camp­bell Pre­ston had the most amaz­ing first year at Ar­gyll Tapestries on the es­planade at Oban, fin­ish­ing on a high dur­ing a storm with cus­tomers brav­ing this to do their fi­nal Christ­mas shop­ping. Luck­ily no wa­ter came into the shop and the shop is set fair for the New Year.

Lizzie, trained at The Royal School of Needle­work, set up Ar­gyll Tapestries as a shop to sell hand painted tapestry kits and fin­ished works of her own and oth­ers. Ar­gyll Tapestries car­ries out restora­tion work and new com­mis­sions with one of the favourite’s be­ing a tapestry of much loved homes in­ter­preted by Lizzie from pho­to­graphs. Ex­am­ples of her work can be seen in the shop.

Lizzie is re­ally look­ing for­ward in 2017 to wel­com­ing back her won­der­ful cus­tomers from far and wide but es­pe­cially those sur­round­ing Oban and the Isles, catch­ing up on their lovely tapestry sto­ries, how they started off from en­cour­age­ment from grand­moth­ers, mothers and aunts and even a few fa­thers.
