Ded­i­cated Har­ris Tweed for care home

The Oban Times - - Districts -

HAR­RIS Tweed He­brides has teamed up with Bethesda Care Home and Hos­pice to de­sign a unique Har­ris Tweed.

The de­sign is a bright sea blue win­dow pane check. The Bethesda cre­ative sewing team will trans­form the fab­ric into a range of ladies and gents ac­ces­sories which will be sold to raise funds for the or­gan­i­sa­tion, which pro­vides care and pal­lia­tive ser­vices on the is­land.

Brand de­vel­op­ment di­rec­tor Mar­garet A Ma­cLeod, said: ‘Har­ris Tweed He­brides was de­lighted to as­sist with this project. Whether it’s the care home or the hos­pice, all of us at the Shaw­bost mill recog­nise the im­por­tance of this fa­cil­ity within our lo­cal com­mu­nity and the amaz­ing com­mit­ment of the Bethesda team.’

Bethesda’s head of fundrais­ing D R Macdon­ald, said: ‘We have a num­ber of tal­ented vol­un­teers who have been mak­ing bags, purses, cush­ion cov­ers and dog coats over the past few years with fab­ric kindly do­nated by Har­ris Tweed He­brides and we felt it was time to have our own be­spoke Tweed. With the help and en­cour­age­ment we have re­ceived from staff at Har­ris Tweed He­brides, par­tic­u­larly Mar­garet Ann, we are de­lighted to launch the Bethesda Har­ris Tweed.’

Ac­ces­sories made in the new Tweed will be avail­able from the Bethesda Shop, Bay­head, Stornoway, over the com­ing weeks.
