Embroidered cushions and homemade candles, crocheted doorstops and quilted bed covers. There's probably also bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens on Kirstie Allsopp's list of favourite things.

No doubt she could run up a dress and matching headband from a pair of Jacquard curtains as well, given her Maria von Trapp tendencies.

However, it seems her recent Channel 4 TV series, Kirstie's Homemade Home, and her current Perfect Christmas show, have given the craft industry in Edinburgh a bit of a boost.
