The Craft Awards become The International Craft Awards. The greatest accolades within the crafting community are going global in 2015!

The 10th year of The Craft Awards, run by Crafts Beautiful and Papercrafter magazines was as big as ever in 2014 with thousands of crafting consumers nominating and then voting for all their favourites…

The Craft Awards are an annual activity and are now well established as a genuine and true mark of quality. The Awards are 100% nominated and then voted for by the consumers who really care about their creative hobby. The awards are the only consumer-lead crafting awards and create a process for the people using the products and brands to let the creators, producers, designers and retailers know who they think are the best of the best. They are the opportunity for those within the industry to have their efforts recognised while giving a voice to our valued readership and online community.

“The organic growth of the awards that we have seen over recent years, alongside the reach of online shopping has gradually given platform to more international brands and products, hence the re-naming of the awards to cement the inclusion of inspiring, market-leading, innovative and creative products and brands across the international crafting community” says Liz Tuthill, Awards Organiser.

Each year we assess and refresh the categories to reflect trends and any shifts in interest, last year saw the introduction of the Favourite Knitting & Stitching Product of which had a great response from consumers, the yarn brand Sirdar clinching the win with their Wash ‘n’ Wear DK Wool and scooping the Highly Commended Award was the Japanese brand Clover with their very popular Pom Pom maker. This year the introduction of the International brand categories will widen the reach and incorporate other brands from the US to the Far East, providing us with accolades for those brands and products that are used by our consumer reach.

‘We strive to maintain the avenue that we have created for the consumers to let us and the people, places and products nominated know what and who they think are the best and we take pride in presenting these to those that win, as a valuable and well-earned accolade. We have continued confidence in the process and every year we experienced a rise in the number of consumers voting for their favourites, making these awards the most popular and most sincere celebration of all those who have come out on top’ says Liz Tuthill, Awards Organiser.
