Hi I'm Jo Westfoot, the owner of The Crafty Nomad.  I love to sew and quilt and generally 'make stuff'!  On my website you will find free tutorials, patterns for sale and my blog which catalogues my sewing and crafting journey!

I've spent the last three and a half years (Jan 2014-July 2017) teaching sewing classes locally.  From July 2017 I'm moving away from teaching to focus on quilting and patterns.

A little bit about the company name.  Why 'The Crafty Nomad'?  My family and I lived overseas for about ten years in a few different countries.  And it was whilst living abroad that my love for crafting and sewing flourished, thanks to some crafty friends!  I started blogging whilst away so the name seemed a good fit.  Although now back in my native land I decided to keep the name, and also use it as the business name as it describes my crafting journey well.
