Welcome To Tortoise Crafts

The Home Of Quilted Postcards

Welcome to my website

This is the digital home of my creative life, from Quilted Postcards & Quilts, to my hobbies of Knitting, Crochet, Weaving & Embroidery. In short all things Patchwork & Fabric!

Please take time to look about and if you would like to subscribe, then please do. I have a section just for subscribers where I have details of some designs that you can download.

I now have a feed to my Instagram & Facebook Feeds right on this home page, so you can see what I've been up to making.

However long you stay I hope you pickup and take away with you just a bit of my passion for all things fabric, thread & yarn.

Sarah
