I have worked with Molly on all three of my tartan designs, and she was fabulous throughout the process — from choosing yarns to comparing color samples, and so on through to the beautiful finished product. She is a font of knowledge, is always ready to make suggestions and answer questions, and her craftsmanship represents a rare standard of excellence. Not only is her weaving impeccable, but the items she creates with the fabric are also done to a fine finish: I have bought several pillow covers, tea towels, and a blanket from her, and they were all perfect. The cherry on top is that her pricing gives the customer incredible value. You just can’t find the sort of affordable small-scale tartan weaving she does anywhere else, and to me she’s worth her weight in gold!

…when we received the towels, our friend really liked them! It is interesting to see a person’s reaction to something that represents their heritage. Thank you for providing what must be relatively hard piece-work at a reasonable cost.

As a native Scot (now living in the US) I have become deeply familiar with all things tartan over the years and have always held the firm belief that ‘if it isn’t from Scotland, it’s rubbish!’ I cannot have been more wrong.

Whilst browsing various vendors in the UK and the US for an off the shelf fly plaid for my wedding (in a difficult to find tartan I might add) I, by sheer chance came across and will never look back. Molly immediately embraced the project of creating a custom fly plaid in Oliver (Hunting – Modern) with great enthusiasm.

Speaking from experience, for off the shelf fly plaids in good wool you are looking at maybe twice what Molly charges – for a custom plaid, woven to your own specification, it is three times as much, easily. The products are a magnificent steal and despite Molly’s generous price for the plaid, the final product I received from her is one of expert craftsmanship – it is simply brilliant work.

If that weren’t enough, every single interaction with Molly has been nothing short of wonderful. She has been incredibly accommodating throughout the whole process.

I have nothing but good things to say about Molly and her craft. She cares about her work and the customer. If you need any tartan accessory, anything other than a kilt, you would be a fool to go to anyone other than Molly, the Tartan Weaver.

I have purchased a good number of products from ‘Molly Manaugh, A Tartan Weaver’ and can say with some authority that the quality and workmanship cannot be matched! Molly is very easy to work with and always produces an individual work of Art. The old saying goes: ‘you get what you pay for’. In this case, a wearable piece of Art.

Thank you for your hard work on my MacLaren treasures. My mother will be so happy with the lap rug. I love mine too. I have received so many compliments on my scarf. I wear it every day! . . . You did a fantastic job and you truly are a master weaver!

I cannot tell you how happy I was to return home for one hour between the business trip to Portland and the DAR trip to Roanoke to find Deanne’s sash. It is beautiful! And she was so proud to have it. She wore it all three days. As soon as I have pictures, I will send them. Thank you for the beautiful workmanship but even more for your kindness.
