Hello and welcome to Crafts from the Cwtch (which rhymes with 'butch'). I'm Sarah, a yarn-crafter, freelance designer, occasional spinner and newly converted sewist. I'm mum to two children and a Miniature Schnauzer, and wife to a workaholic. We live in a small village in West Sussex (UK), not too far from the coast, and surrounded by farmland. My studio - the Cwtch - is full of yarn, and many (many!) projects in various stages of completion.

In my 'spare' time (ha!) I love to read and paint, to take photos, and I'm learning to play the ukulele which I'm not especially good at, but enjoy immensely. I also love tea, tulips and tarot.

I publish new posts each week, which include tutorials, patterns, reviews and all sorts of yarn-related talk. Between posts, I can also be found on social media including Instagram, RavelryFacebook, Pinterest and TwitterI am a featured blogger on the inspiration pages of the Scheepjes website (I also design for them) and also curate an Etsy page.

You will find patterns, interviews and articles in various other places including:
More interviews and patterns are scheduled for publication in coming months.
