About Hare and Boathouse Creations. Handmade in Scotland.

Hare and Boathouse Creations. Handmade in Scotland.

Beautiful handcrafted bags, purses and accessories.

I live and work from home in the stunning countryside of Wigtownshire, South West Scotland. I am married, have one son and have a beautiful 9 yr old Border Terrier who is my best friend and with who I love to explore the countryside with.

I am a self taught sewist and Bagineer, originally training as a Florist I gained all my qualifications in Floristry and Design. Colour and design has been my passion for many, many years. In addition to Floristry, I had a sideline making curtains, blinds etc. for the homes of some lovely customers when I lived in Derbyshire. I love patchwork, especially paper piecing and you can also guarantee that I will have either an embroidery or a counted cross stitch project on the go too!

I have been running my little business, making and selling bags, for the last 5 years now and I have gained a fabulous reputation for the quality and uniqueness of my items. All are handcrafted by myself in my little sewing studio (or, for a more down to earth description, a spare room in our house!!!!!) I source all of my own materials and I work by myself so you can be assured you will always be talking with me, Julie, the owner of Hare and Boathouse Creations, should you make contact.

I take great pride in my work and everything I make is made with the utmost care and attention to detail and with lots of love. I can guarantee that the quality I produce is second to none. You can see more reviews on Facebook too.

I mainly use HARRIS TWEED or Cork to create my items but I often use many other materials too. I do like to upcycle, I have been known to use clothing, leathers chairs, curtains and I have even used ties. This means that many of my items are truly one of a kind and will never be repeated.

I purchase all of my HARRIS TWEED from independent weavers who all live and work from their homes on the Outer Hebrides. Each weaver has their own style and many colours and patterns of the tweed are very rarely repeated which again, means that you will be purchasing something as unique as yourself.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me. I hope I will become one of your 'favourites'
