Covid 19 Lockdown

Due to the current and ongoing pandemic in the wake of the Covid 19 Coronavirus Sealy MacWheely is closed for the forseeable future for in-store shopping, workshops, Knit’n’Natters and events. The online shop remains open but this is liable to change at any time in line with governmental guidance and there will be a delay to parcels being dispatched as Royal Mail is currently working at full capacity and I am limiting trips to the Post Office wherever possible. 

Although Ashford products are currently still available please get in touch using the Contact Me page to discuss purchases before ordering to ensure that your wheel, loom or accessory is in stock and able to be shipped.

Thank you for your support and understanding and stay safe x

Sealy MacWheely | Spin. Knit. Create. Shop!

Sealy MacWheely is Kirkintilloch’s Local Yarn & Fibre shop stocking a range of beautiful squishy fibres for spinning and felting as well as a wealth of stunning hand dyed yarns by some of the most talented indie dyers in the UK. In addition to this the shop also showcases a selection of local arts and crafts and a wide range of top-quality accessories for the budding knitter, crocheter and spinner!

The shop is also host to regular Knit’n’Natter sessions and craft workshops in the dedicated community space – open every day for drop-in help or just a cup of tea and a blether!

It was in the January of 2011 that I, Katie Seal, received my first spinning wheel. The first thing my childhood friend said to me that day as she gazed upon my shiny new Ashford Traditional will forever remain with me: 

What are you, like, Sealy MacWheely or something?”

I thought it was the stupidest thing I had ever heard. 
It stuck.
