Heritage You Can Wear
Our on-site sewing studio is one of the busiest spots on campus, creating hundreds of hand-crafted treasures year after year. Most known for the art of kiltmaking, having a history of well over 40 years of experience, we create and rent traditional, regulation kilts in light, medium and heavy 100% wool tartans, shipped in special right from Scotland. Our master kilt-maker, Ann Cantwell, boasts over 20 years of experience at the College making one-of-a-kind kilts, each piece requiring at least 6000 hand-sewn stitches. She has created kilts for Canadian dignitaries, films such as Disney’s The Princess Diaries, and regularly ships fine, tailored tartan works all over the world. Along with our kiltmaker apprentice, Jenni MacLean, the two work year-round on both custom orders, kilt rentals, and items for sale in our Craft Shop.
Come by and visit our sewing room sometime to get a first-hand look at the elaborate process. Our distinctive kilts will make you shine on your special occasion. Whether it is for a wedding, graduation, special event or outfitting a pipe band, our superb craftsmanship and attention to detail will last a lifetime.
We are an independent, non-profit organization. Through the business of our Craft Shop and sewing room, we are able to continue our educational programming that all leads back to our original mission. Read more here!
