Hi I am the lady behind bettydelights I am a textile artist and volunteer art worker.I have loved stitching all my life and started at a very young age .Thanks to my nan whom had a wonderfull sewing room filled with fabulous fabrics ,buttons and a table sewing machine.My nan used to make shoes for a living those industrial sewing machines must have took some working .I come from a famliy that has very much got a sewing background my Gran also had her own sewing machines and used to make toys mainly teddybears for a living My grandpa was a joiner who loved wood and creating so quite an industrious and creative family.

I love to make items that you would not normally be able to buy from shops which may mean some weird and wondefull bits and bobs may crop up from time to time .

I am at the moment very much enjoying handstitching…

I am at the moment very much enjoying handstitching. I have always enjoyed stitching by hand but I decided to make it my main craft.I am disabled so it often makes it difficult for me If I try to take on bigger things eg furniture in which I gave a go a little while back .Turned out lovely and enjoyed it but I must admit it was very difficult for me. So I decided to take on something a little less demanding on my body.

I have moments when creative mind takes over and I have ideas coming out my ears and I have to many ideas and not enough time to do them in .So occasionally I may stray from my usual path and something completely differant will appear in my shop haha but that is what being creative is all about.Mind you saying that I usually like and keep it haha but I feel it is time to make and let it move on .The house is getting rather crowded .I have a blog you can check out if you would like to see some of the things I have kept in my ecclectic bright home just check out
