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

Latest Updates 20/09/21

A lot been happening here at the home of Tortoise Crafts.

After a rather mad rush, knowing we had to get it done for August, we have published Book Number 3 – Quilted Postcards - The Christmas Edition. As soon as we finished book Number 2, we started on Number 3, and I do mean we. I may be the designer and maker, but I couldn’t publish the books without Tony, doing all the photography and then putting it all together (all the technical stuff!!) and Laura going through and making sense of my writing and correcting my terrible spelling and grammar.

I hope that you are enjoying my weekly Quilt Stories about the many quilts that are around our home! every week a new story will be added. On number 12 now! There are also my Rambles for you to read, the latest one is "Turning Of The Seasons".

On Laura & Sarah Designs @Tortoise Crafts, there will be more patterns coming very soon!!! To add to those that we already have available on our Etsy store. BookshelfVintage Sewing Machine, Square Love Blackwork Design.  a Coloured Blackwork Circle Design and the Coloured Blackwork Autumn Leaf Design. As well as other Patchwork designs.

Finally for this update, Fairkytes are to start classes again on the 28th September. There will be a minimum number of 8 and a maximum of 12 for the classes, so they are asking if anyone is interested in joining my Patchwork & Quilting class, would you please contact the Fairkytes Office on 01708 456308.

Remember that I regularly post on Facebook and Instagram.

From us at Tortoise Crafts, happy creating.
