Shop re-opening

Following government guidelines and predictions, we hope to be able to re-open on Tuesday 27th April. You can follow us on Facebook or Instagram for all the latest information about this.

Memory Quilt Squares

If you are busy making (or have made) quilted squares for our big memory quilt – thank you! Please keep hanging on to them and we’ll let you know here and on Facebook when you can bring or send them to us.

Ordering from The Peacock and the Tortoise

We are happy to take orders for fabrics and haberdashery. Please order via email on letting us know your phone number and address and being as clear as possible what you would like. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible to confirm your order and take payment over the phone.

Please be aware that not all the fabrics on the website are in stock: unfortunately as we are not in the shop, we can’t take deliveries.

Business for sale

After building up her successful business, Trudy is hoping to take a well-earned rest and is selling The Peacock and the Tortoise, a going (and growing) concern. If you’re interested in buying the business or would like to find out more, we are happy to send out information. Just email us on Thank you!
