THE STORY SO FAR
Since moving to Orkney in 1998 and establishing a small tearoom in the conservatory of my house, the business then grew with the building in 2002 of a new Gallery/Workshop and the addition in 2006 of Appie's Tea Room. By 2012 I had worn myself out and so, sadly the tearoom had to close. As part of my recovery I discovered the immense joys of spinning and haven't looked back since. Fast forward 10 years and not only have I developed a passion for all things woolly, converted the tearoom into a house (in which we now live) but in 2021 my new studio/workshop was builit.
I hope you manage to find Appies - just look out for the blue signs on the Stromness to Birsay Road and make your way up the track to my little blue cabin on the hill!!!
(If for some reason (?????) your spouse/partner/friend is not interested in woolly things we have a lovely decking for them to sit out and admire the stupendous view - weather permitting!)
