Staffin Business Directory goes live!

A POPULAR quilting firm in Staffin has become the first to be featured on a new online business directory.

The Wee Quilter, run by Wendy Higgins, has become the very first business entry on the Staffin Community Trust website.

The Trust’s directors saw the creation of a one-stop website which can promote the array of Staffin’s businesses and help the local economy attract new custom as a key objective. The website was only launched in September and there has been heavy online traffic since with thousands of hits from all over the world as the site is regularly updated with fresh content including news, project updates and historic photographs of the district.

Wendy’s business, which is run from her workshop in Trotternish Avenue, is featured in the via the Small Businesses/Trades menu.

It gives the story of The Wee Quilter and the bespoke goods created by Wendy which are sold in the UK and overseas.

Over the coming days and weeks the range of businesses and services which are available in Staffin will become clear as we add the shops, cafes, B & Bs, self-catering properties, visitor attractions, etc to the site.

The cost of featuring on the website is an annual £20. Anybody interested can contact the SCT development officer Hugh Ross on 01470 562 464 or e-mail
