Hey there,

I’m Mari, a maker living outside Raleigh, NC with my husband and two dogs.  Craft is a way of life for me – in addition to the fiber arts, I handcraft felt floral arrangements and do a little graphic design for fun.

Wait a minute… you’re not Betty?

Nope.  Betty is more of a persona – a little old fashioned, a lot practical, sweet but a little salty.  I’ve known a few Betties in my time who take no shit but do no harm. Bad Betty is still a lady, but she’s a tough old bird and she’s not going to put up with anyone’s nonsense. She’s kind of a bad ass.  

Bad Betty is who I want to be when I grow up.  You know what’s also bad ass? Knitting.  It’s not just for grannies.  I’ve been knitting for over 10 years now.  Knitting is as much a part of my story as Betty is.  Hence, Bad Betty Knits.

Thanks for stopping by!

XO, Mari
