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 11/06/21

The ‘big’ news, which I am sure you haven’t missed as it is all over this website and our social media, is that we, as a family, have published a second book ‘Quilted Postcards The Flower Edition’. We have slightly got the bug for creating and publishing and so there might be more books in the future – we will keep you posted…

Looking forward, we (Laura and Sarah Designs @ tortoisecrafts) are working on new blackwork embroidery designs for releasing as patterns on our Etsy store, to go with the patterns that are already available, Square Love Blackwork Design.  a Coloured Blackwork Circle Design and the Coloured Blackwork Autumn Leaf Design. As well as other Patchwork designs. The latest design Tulips Blackwork Design has just been added.

At the moment I have no news on when the classes at Fairkytes will re-start. Please check back here or my Facebook page for the latest updates.

Remember that I regularly post on Facebook and Instagram and I also do the ‘Rambles’ which can ramble off in any direction or for any length. The latest new "Rambling" - "Practical Clothing", has been added.

My first book has also featured in the July edition of Today's Quilter as one of their "Fresh Picks"

From us at Tortoise Crafts, happy creating.
