I started the company in 2007 and have loved to see it grow. Crafting began as a passion for me and has become my lifestyle. I oversee all aspects of the business and really love implementing new ideas and projects. My favourite craft is Mixed Media; I've been to workshops up and down the country, really what could be better than an afternoon spent with paint! 
My favourite day to work is Friday, we always have a lovely group of crafty ladies and usually teach jewellery after lunch! I love all those sparkles! 
Meet Victoria  
Being my big sister, Belinda has always been a massive inspiration to me but seeing her start her own business from nothing was incredible. I remember the days when we would sit in her bedroom at Mum's house bagging sequins, sorting beads and designing cards and jewellery for her to sell whilst chatting and snacking like all sisters do. From there I've watched the business grow, a lot, from opening our first shop, employing staff, launching our own website and online shop plus offering activities and events across Hampshire. Throughout school and college Belinda supported me and I would help run parties and man events.  
At this point it was time for me to decide what on earth I would do with my future. Well what better opportunity than to join the team at BellaCrafts as a full time team member. In my role I plan the activities, workshops, events as well as choosing all the latest products.  
My favourite crafts are jewellery making and sewing, though ask anyone, everything I make ends up purple!  
I love working on Wednesday evenings when we are open until 9pm. There is such a lovely, relaxed atmosphere and I love teaching sewing and jewellery in these evenings when we can feel all cosy in our beautiful barn, sipping tea & crafting with like minded people.  
Meet Harriet 
I joined the BellaCrafts team in February 2014 after having my little boy , who now at 3 years old has been one of our most enthusiastic customers! 
What I love about BellaCrafts is the range of activities we offer, from parties, workshops and attending events - the job is different each day and it's really rewarding to see people learning new skills and honing existing ones. I love teaching workshops and sharing the skills I learnt studying Textiles at Uni; I especially enjoy my Monday Sewing and Textiles after School group I run - I've met some real little characters with some amazing talents - for chatting 
and sewing! 
As Activities and Marketing Co-ordinator I look after most aspects of advertising and design for the business and have loved watching it grow and being part of such an enthusiastic and dedicated team. It's a dream job! 
Harriet is currently on Maternity leave after the birth of her baby girl in September.  
I have been a part of the BellaCrafts family since July 2017. No two days are ever the same and working here fulltime is creative heaven! 
My day can consist of anything from making flamingos to Facebook posts, I love that everyday is a challenge and each day brings new faces through the barn door! 
Customers are most definitely my favourite part of the job! (Cute teeny BellaDoodlers in particular!) I love that I get to work with children and help them bring their creative visions to life! 
I am currently our marketing and admin coordinator, I love posting all the amazing things BellaCrafts are achieving on our Facebook page, giving our customers an insight into our super exciting business. 
I studied marketing for my degree, have a strong interest in the fashion industry and my crafts are often influenced by this! My craft portfolio consists mostly of paper based crafts. If you love scrapbooking, acrylic paintings and card making too then I am your go to girl!
