Betty Virago is an independent craft business based in Leeds, West Yorkshire, with a big heart for helping women gain confidence through crafts.
We run weekly craft and textile groups in Leeds for anyone who wants to learn a textile based craft or wants to find a welcoming group of people to craft with.
We sell our own handmade products on the Etsy platform and help small crafters on the road to setting up their own online stores and we work with groups across the country who support vulnerable women, running craft workshops and designing craft kits and ideas for charities to sell.

The word Virago means a woman of a warrior spirit and we believe that we can use crafts and making things with our hands as a way to empower women in difficult situations. We do that through our Quilts of Hope project, which makes quilts filled with messages of hope and love for safe places that support women escaping street prostitution.
