My Story......

How it all began....

Crafty Betty started out when I was in my 30's after being inspired to turn my garden shed into a sewing room. I was at the time working in the Art & Design department at a Secondary School a few years after completing my 2:1 Degree in Education at Lincoln. After deciding to leave the education system and try teaching privately, the business soon grew and I started selling handcrafted items too. I opened my first studio/shop which was a tiny little premises in The Buttermarket Newark which I soon outgrew. I moved into a former office suite in The Arcade where I had the space to teach classes and rent out two of the rooms to other Crafters. 7 years since it all began you can now find Crafty Betty opposite Newark Library in London Road Car Park in my own Sewing Studio, Shop & Tearoom.

I am very proud of everything I have achieved - it doesn't feel like a job when you do something you love!
