Thornbury Women's Neighbourhood House are hosting a series of seminars for women interested in starting craft business in September.  The course will be facilitated by local women who are successfully running their own craft business.

One of the guest speakers is the lovely Liz Jones the creative mind behind Betty Jo Designs and Find, Make, Do

Liz designs and creates unique, one-of-a-kind jewellery and time pieces.They are all crafted from funky vintage lino,recycled laminex, gorgeous pre-loved buttons and pretty embroidered doilies and tapestries that someones grandma lovingly stitched.  Liz transforms these forgotten pieces of domestic bric-a-brac into keepsake brooches, pendants and clocks with the memories loving attached. All handmade with LOVE in Melbourne, Australia.

You can find out more about the craft seminars, dates and times here.  If you would love a Betty Jo creation for yourself and be the envy of all your friends, you can buy a one off creation here or here.  Oh, and Map 29 will be presenting at the seminar too.


  1. Great idea! You'll both be great presenters. I don't know Liz but replied to an email from her just yesterday! ;-)
