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 Facebook page 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

Latest Updates 13/02/21

Firstly an update on my classes, after talking to Fairkytes and members of classes, we have decided that they won't now be starting in January. If circumstances allow they will start after Easter 2021. Please check back here in March or my Facebook page for the latest updates.

New venture of Laura & Sarah Designs has started (LSD - Laura is still complaining about the name! Was going to be Duck & Tortoise Designs!). We have just added another design to the Etsy Shop, Square Love Blackwork Design. This goes with a Coloured Blackwork Circle Design and with the Coloured Blackwork Autumn Leaf Design. We are working on more designs, the next one will be out soon!

Another new "Rambling" - "Romantic", just published (they are getting longer, much longer!) as well as updates to the Facebook feed. My book has also featured in the July edition of Today's Quilter as one of their "Fresh Picks"

Wishing you all a much happier and better 2021.

From us all at Tortoise crafts.
