About Elizabeth:
Elizabeth Dackson is a self-proclaimed fabric-aholic, with no designs on reform! Her sewing career began back in 2010 with a quest to develop a new hobby. Little did she know, she was starting a whole new way of life.  A stay-at-home mom to a very curious 4-year-old boy and wife to a workaholic husband, Elizabeth is also the voice of Don’t Call Me Betsy. The way she tells it, Betsy was her childhood nickname, a moniker she always despised. She happily passed it along to her sewing machine, started the blog and has been on a roll ever since.
