Elizabeth (Liz) Betts runs Quilty Pleasures, a quilt studio/shop based in her home town of Brighton and Hove. As well as supplying quilters with everything they need to make a quilt, she teaches workshops, writes for magazines and gives talks on the subject. She has a gentle approach to quilt making, believing that enjoying what you are making is as important as the finished result. Liz has a background in printed textile design and has so far clocked up eleven years of quilt making. She has had a research paper published in the British Quilt Study Group, and is a founding member of the Brighton and Hove Modern Quilt Guild. She has had a quilt featured in the In Spotlight Gallery at the Festival of Quilts, which then toured the UK at the Creative Stitches exhibitions. Her work is also exhibited in the Brighton and Hove Open houses, held every year in May.
