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 24/10/20

New venture of Laura & Sarah Designs (LSD - Laura is still complaining about the name!) has started. We have just added our first design to the Etsy Shop, a Coloured Blackwork Autumn Leaf Design. More to follow!

Just to let everybody know that my classes at Farikytes will not be starting as they usually do in September. The situation will be reviewed on a regular basis and when I know anything more I will update everybody. Still no news on this!!

Another new "Rambling" - "Love & Hate", 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"
