With just one day until winners are announced for the Best of Craft Awards 2019 (no, it’s not too late to vote on the industry’s most prestigious awards, but hurry!), we speak to Stephanie Weightman of Tattered Lace on her highlights from 2019 and a selection of her favourites from their Festive Collection.
After being narrowed down as one of your favourites, Stephanie is up for Crafting Woman Of The Year and Designer Of The Year and Tattered Lace is nominated for Best Brand For Crafts.
“I’m so thrilled to be nominated! The Best of Craft Awards mean a great deal to us in the crafting world – they show us that what we do is appreciated and that we’re going in the right direction. I’m overwhelmingly thankful for the support from members of the community and I hope you’ll follow us even further into the future as we keep innovating and creating. Thank you!” Stephanie Weightman
Highlights from 2019 included an ingenious concept for their Lemon Verbena Collection that allows you to cut unique matts that could include frames of varying sizes and thicknesses with total accuracy every time, a gorgeous Pastel Haven Collection (think soothing pastel colours perfectly suited to floral die sets) and the Raspberry Roses Collection, incorporating 3D Decoupage whilst being informed by past collections to mix-and-match potential between the dies.
