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.

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.

Latest Updates 14/11/20

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, a Coloured Blackwork Circle Design to go with the Coloured Blackwork Autumn Leaf Design. More to follow!

My classes will not be starting this year, as we are in the middle of a lockdown, and by the time it ends then we will be in December, traditionally the end of term. If circumstances allow then Fairkytes are looking to start a class in January, but this does depend on many things. Please check back here or my Facebook page for the latest updates.

Another new "Rambling" - "Medieval Inspired", just published (they are getting 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"
