Hello and thank you for visiting.
My name is Christine Fortune and I live in Sunderland. Sunderland is a city on the coast of North East England. It may not feature in any of the Most Beautiful Places in Britain books but it can be magnificent. It’s people may not be mentioned often in the history books but they contributed in many significant ways to the history of our country. This site is, in part, a place for my own personal recognition of Sunderland’s history and people.
In addition I have a passion for fabric art. My first love is quilting but I am drawn to all the possibilities there are to work with fabric. I’ll be including my own and other people’s work here.
Rota Fortune Design was set up in April 2016 when I decided my love of the city of my birth and my love of fabric art should be combined and recorded.
