Celtic Threads: A Journey in Cape Breton Crafts


Now in Stores!

For more than sixty years, MacLeod’s life has been inextricably woven into the art and the craft of weaving in Cape Breton. An avid weaver herself, Eveline became an ardent student of the art and a teacher of the craft, tracing its roots from the glens of Cape Breton to the Highlands of Scotland and beyond.

In Celtic Threads, Eveline MacLeod shares her lifetime of research and collecting the history, methods, patterns and people of Cape Breton’s considerable tapestry of practical and ornamental weaving and other fibre art and crafts.
