Portrait No 5 – Nancy, Crafter & Quilter


Today I had the pleasure of meeting Nancy who is a passionate crafter working from her home. Her creativity is reflected in her home and when I saw the Audrey Hepburn canvas I just knew that I had to photograph Nancy in front of it !

Nancy is the third person on the project with a textiles degree and makes a whole range of beautifully crafted items from jewellery to rag rugs, doorstops to quilts and lots of things inbetween ! The variety keeps Nancy’s passion for her hobby turned business alive and stops it becoming a chore.
Like everyone I’ve met so far Nancy’s hobby turned into a business so that she could leave an unfulfilling job. She now sells her products at craft fairs and online.


Nancy’s business is called N5nsy’s Craft Boutique and her website is, she can also be found on Facebook with links to her Etsy and Ebay shops.
