Hello and welcome to Crafts from the Cwtch (which rhymes with 'butch'). I'm Sarah, a yarn-crafter, 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 projects in various stages of completion!
In my 'spare' time (ha!) I love to read and doodle, taking photos of flowers, and I'm learning to play the ukulele which I'm not especially good at, but enjoy immensely. I love (all sorts of) tea, tulips, stationery and peanut M&Ms, but can't tolerate wheat.
I publish an average of three blog posts each week, which usually include tutorials, patterns, reviews and all sorts of yarn-related talk. Between posts I can also be found on social media including Instagram, Ravelry, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. I am a featured blogger on the inspiration pages of the Scheepjes website and also curate an Etsy page.
