Welcome!

I'm Lindsay - The Border Tart. I'm inspired by colour (not just indigo) and pattern, I'm passionate about India, her artisans and textiles, and I value most highly all things made by hand. 

These forces combine in my own dyed yarns and small edition stitching kits. Making by hand brings so many benefits and imbues each piece with love. 

The items I create give you the materials to explore and enjoy the making process!

The India images are from my early 2020 trip. The others show block print fabrics I brought back, my indigo dyed yarns and unique boro-style and block print stitchery kits, 'hand stitched' gift wrap, stitchery greetings cards and a workshop sample together with Tiny Tins of essentials.
