Hello hello! I'm Jo Westfoot, aka The Crafty Nomad. Welcome to my little corner of the web! Grab a cuppa and take your time to have a look about!
I am a quilt designer and contribute to magazines such as Love Patchwork & Quilting, Quilt Now and Make Modern. Want to see some of my commissions then click on the PRESS tab below.
I teach whole day and half day workshops and classes on modern patchwork and quilting techniques in north Hampshire.
I run a popular Bi-Monthly Quilt Pattern Subscription service: VIP Club. Every other month members get a new release pattern delivered to their door as Happy Mail! Plus support and video tutorials in an exclusive Facebook Group.
Some 'how to' tutorials are written specifically aimed at sewing beginners. Others are more advanced. I LOVE modern quilting, so you will find lots on here about that too!
I love sewing and generally making stuff! I spent three and a half years from Jan 2014 to July 2017 teaching sewing classes daily locally. So I have a great idea of how people learn, what they need to help them and what they like.
I’m the Chairperson and Co-founder of the Hampshire Modern Quilt Guild (UK), held in Hook, Hampshire on the 4th Sunday of each month, 10-3.30pm. For more information about that please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
