Welcome to the home of Lindsay Roberts, The Border Tart.
You'll see what I make and where to find it, BUT this website is overdue a major update and I am aiming to achieve that during WINTER 2016-17. This includes a new webshop with a wider range of my handmade goods.

I try to keep my Instagram, Facebook and Ravelry pages up to date with the fairs and events I am attending so please check there too.

And visit my workspace in Chesters if you like.

I am in love with colour, texture and pattern. They are an intrinsic part of my life; I focus on them everywhere.

I’ve been ‘making things’ since childhood, hands always busy with materials of one sort or another. Using simple tools - needles, scissors, carders, spinning wheel - I make my own intricate colour stories with fibres and fabrics, incorporating new techniques as I learn them and revelling in the process of experimentation.

Handwork is central to my practice. I incorporate a variety of techniques to create new work inspired by what I see and feel.

Textiles and paper are my favourite natural raw materials and ideas for combining them abound, ever more so since visiting India in 2012/2013...
