I saw this British Craft Awards 2017 badge on my Instagram feed and by going to vote I found myself nominated in the Quilting blog of the year category!
A surprise and a thrill to see myself there alongside some other very familiar names...hi Jo, Lynne and Ali!
Even after a bit of research, I'm not totally sure what the British Crafting Awards are. They cover many categories, (sewing, quilting, paper craft etc.) and Immediate Media, who produce many craft magazines, are behind them, that's all I gleaned from Googling. I don't think there is an actual prize, rather the recognition that you are a part of the craft industry. You can vote for the category of your choice (or all the categories) here. It's relatively straightforward and there's a prize draw of Amazon vouchers for those who vote. Realistically, it may be a bit of a long shot for me but, who knows! I'll wait and see and it's lovely to be in the running.
