About

Nicole Daksiewicz

Nicole is a designer and quilter living in Indianapolis, IN. While she has been sewing from a young age her introduction to quilting began just a few years ago. Instantly in love with quilting, it became her favorite creative outlet and marked the beginning for Modern Handcraft.

Founded in 2011, Modern Handcraft is a quilting and sewing blog where Nicole shares design inspiration and sewing tutorials. With all of her projects the focus is always about modern designs and expression through color.

In her shop she shares many one of a kind creations ranging from home goods like pillows and quilts to screen prints made in collaboration with her husband Jerome of Nomo Design.

You can also find some of Nicole’s work on the Janome blog where she is currently a Janome Maker. She also has many tutorials on the Sizzix Design Team blog, Therm O Web blog and The Sewing Rabbit where she was previously a design team member. Nicole has been featured in many sewing and quilting publications including Love Sewing, Quilt Now, Modern Patchwork and Love Patchwork and Quilting.
