Stacy West of Buttermilk Basin

Stacy is a “make it happen” girl. She comes from humble beginnings and worked her way to being a respectful designer in numerous mediums. She is an artist at heart and is not afraid to step out of the box & try new things. She has designed rubber stamps, licensed her designs in the gift industry, and designed logos & identity systems for various shops in the past. She does not believe in failures… only learning lessons! She is inspired and most importantly, driven.

Stacy was a Martha Stewart American Made finalist, making it to the top 3 in the US in 2015, reaching almost 100,000 votes.

She designs, on average 100+ designs a year in various mediums including cotton, wool & fiber. Each month she releases between 7-10 at her shop, providing the customers with new designs/kits to purchase each month. Then the patterns go directly to the reps, to offer them to their customers.

She has been featured in various magazines including Simply Vintage, Quilt Mania, Better Homes & Gardens Special Interest Publications, The Wool Street Journal, Primitive Quilts & American Patchwork & Quilting. Her Bringing Home the Tree recently graced the cover of Keepsake Quilting, selling over 500 blocks of the months for them.

Buttermilk Basin ‘gives back’ to her customers with a FREE MYSTERY BOM. She currently has almost 1000 customers purchasing the kits monthly, with many other simply downloading the pattern. Her company is established both online & brick and mortar, and she sells her designs both wholesale & retail. She recently opened Buttermilk Basin, a 2,200 square foot shop where she hosts workshops, events & offers a variety of mediums including wool, cottons, yarn dyes, fibers, patterns & kits to her customers.

Stacy travels & teaches nationally on a regular basis to established quilt shops. She also brings in women from around the country (as far as Australia) to her WOOLSTOCK event which is a bi-yearly 3 day event held at the shop. She is the only teacher that teaches 2 days workshops, 1 day of ‘make-it take-its’ along with a trunk show, evening party, and more. She hopes to continue to grow this event and offer it 4 times a year.

Besides working as a designer in the quilting industry {which truly is her DREAM job}, Stacy is passionate about her family, her five cats, and all things vintage. Her husband, George, and their two lovely daughters, Hannah and Grace are her truest inspiration and the core of Buttermilk Basin. Each of them continues to play a role on the team! The cats—Wilma, Oliver, Bella, Oscar, and Henry—offer moral support from home.
