Betty Hamilton has been involved with sewing and textile arts for over 65 years and is one of the best loved sewing teachers in the Yakima Valley. She received her degree from Yakima Valley Community college in home economics and continued her education at Central Washington University in pattern drafting. Betty also worked closely with Debbie Goello of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.
Betty taught sewing classes in Seattle, and after returning to the Yakima Valley she managed Bernina Sewing Center where she taught sewing and quilting classes to adults as well as children. She loves teaching and has endless patience with children and adults (who generally need it the most). She is also a prolific and artistic quilter.
