The delightful Cyndi and her family share their stone and thatched cottage weaving studio. She shares her story of how she became involved in weaving and demonstrates her skill. An inspiring story and lifestyle. Beautiful gifts to buy too.

Cyndi Graham is the most exuberant and fantastic person who truly loves what she does and literally throws herself into her work. After asking her parents if she and her family could move back in with them, she set to work restoring the original family manse across the street from their current house. She creates products from scratch, showing us how wool is carted, spun, and set up for mounting it on the loom for weaving. Her loom is quite large and emanates from 1884. It has been passed down thru the family. What else that’s unusual is that most looms only have four pedals while hers has six. This ensures that she can create more complicated patterns than normal. While she does the weaving, her sister sows the loomed material into masterful creations such as jackets and capes. This adventure in the creation of material and finished products is not to be missed.

We happened along this wonderful studio 3 years ago during our 2 week trip around Ireland. It still sits so clearly in my mind. Wonderful atmosphere, the craft of weaving in such traditional means with extremely old looms was fascinating. A highlight of our trip and Cyndi was so generous with her time.

Old history books and teachings speak of cottage industries, well this takes that to a new level. Yes its an old style cottage with a tatch roof selling traditional Irish wares. Its not cheap tat from China or thurd world countries. When you pass by it to view the lighthouse stop off if its open, well worth it.

Cyndi's place is an absolute must in Donegal, especially for those looking for unique, one of a kind gifts (scarves, bags, hats, coats). I went with my parents who loved learning about her craft and seeing her vintage loom. Her cottage is also located in a very picturesque part of Donegal and is worth the drive out there. Her place was one of our favorites on our trip!

Cyndi's workshop is just fabulous - see for yourself the skill that goes into weaving - lovingly blended colours and textures. You will not be disappointed.

First of all, the drive is beautiful. Second of all, Cyndi is lovely and her work is amazing!! We spent quite a while shopping and chatting while she worked, and of course, we bought ourselves some gifts. The cottage she works in is lovely as well! Do stop by!!

My wife and I visited Cyndi Graham's small delightful thatch roofed studio, a beautifully restored 100 year old cottage. As an architect, I was interest to see it, especially the thatch roof which is neatly done and secured with chicken wire over the thatch and tightly fastened at the end gables. If you have an architectural interest, by all means visit this little studio. The best is inside, weaver Cyndi and her loom, and the beautiful weaves she makes. Truly a treasure to visit if you are going to St. John's Point.

The Donegal Tourist Information suggested driving St. John's Peninsula and visiting Cyndi Graham's studio. What a treasure! We enjoyed our demonstration and browsing her lovely thatched shop! Don't miss an opportunity to purchase some of treasures straight from her loom, instead of the highly commercialized gift shops! If you are short on time, turn around here, as it is quite a drive to the point.
