A true passion for kiltmaking lasts a lifetime.  Our kilt-making apprentice, Sarah currently works at our #GNKhire store.  Sarah found kilt making by following in her family footsteps. Her granny, Irene, was a very talented kiltmaker who was brought up in South House Broadway before moving to Montrose.  Thank you to all kiltmakers, like Irene, for inspiring the next generation and preserving Scottish heritage. . . #EKA #GNKfamily #MadeInScotland #KeepItReal Keep It Real, Irene, Edinburgh, Scotland, Broadway, Bring It On, Passion, Store, House

I thought there was much more to kilts than just wearing them." Q1: Where did you hear about the course? I saw it online. It was on the Gordon Nicolson Kiltmaker’s website
