Betz White is a designer, author and "green" crafter who combines her whimsical color and design sense with a love for repurposing. In 2005, Betz left her former career as a children's wear designer to pursue a new love: creating one-of-a-kind items from second hand materials. Her line of home and fashion accessories sells online and around the world and has been featured on Martha Stewart's television show, in Country Living, and CRAFT magazines, and on numerous craft podcasts.
Her first book, Warm Fuzzies (North Light 2007) is the go-to book on recycled felting. Sewing Green (STC Craft 2009) is Betz’s second book taking repurposing to the next level. Introduced for Summer 2009: Betz White Organic Textile Collection! Betz uses her apparel industry background for good by designing an exciting new fabric line, printed on organics.
