Our boxes

At The Peacock and The Tortoise we know how much you love treat boxes and make-it kits. So we’ve developed a range of boxes that are sure to delight you or your friends.

“English Paper Piecing” Block of the Month box

English Paper Piecing is a hand-sewing technique where bits of fabric are secured around paper/cardboard templates and then sewn together to make a quilt. When the quilt top is finished, the papers are removed. This is a very old technique, originally employed to use up scraps.

What’s inside the “English Paper Piecing” Block of the Month box?

These monthly boxes contain all the fabrics and the paper templates to make the quilt top, the papers, the glue pen and all the instructions. It will come to you over a period of 10 months at a cost of £11 per month posted out. You can also buy the whole project in one go – this will cost £90.

Treat Boxes

Treat yourself or a friend with this surprise box. We have had great feedback on our Treat Boxes so far, and we offer spring, summer, autumn and Christmas treat boxes. There will be an Autumn treat box available in October and then our Christmas Treat Box available from early November. They are great value and fun – and always a lovely surprise.

What’s in a Treat Box?

It is always the best quality fabric, exclusive to the treat boxes first, has quality and interesting notions and haberdashery included and hopefully the two patterns will catch your interest too. The box value is always greater than the £25 you pay and it can be posted out to anywhere in the UK for £3. Never be without a project again!
