Keeping It Local

As well as commemorating key brands and personalities, the International Craft Awards recognises and celebrates the smaller independent stores across the UK. The awards provide a channel for readers, and indeed the crafting community, to voice their preferences and communicate this to all the people who work so hard to provide them with their creative experiences.


I'm delighted by the record response we had in the 2017 International Craft Awards with over 26,000 votes. Thank you to everyone who helped to make last year such a record-breaking success.
