Belinda 
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 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 Serena 
I am the newest member of the BellaCrafts team, joining in August 2016. When I saw the position advertised on Facebook, I just knew I had to apply for my perfect job! 
 
I love all that BellaCrafts offers, from providing crafting activities and workshops to suit all ages and abilities in our beautiful barn to spreading our love of crafting at eternal events. Our small, friendly team are so passionate about working at the centre and always go that extra mile to provide a truly unique experience. 
 
I started crafting from a young age, selling at local craft fairs. I have definitely passed my love of crafts onto my two children who can’t wait to get my craft boxes out and to try something new! My favourite craft is card making, incorporating wire and beads. This has led me onto jewellery making in more recent years. I loved joining the jewellery making course at BellaCrafts a couple of years ago! 
 
So far my favourite day to work is Tuesdays because we start the day with a team meeting. This is great planning session to get us focused and inspired for the week ahead! 
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!
