Make sure you cast your vote

By Mark Hayhurst 01 Oct 2019

Voting is open for the 2020 Craft Business Awards.

Make sure your favourites don’t miss out and if you have been lucky enough to be shortlisted then mobilise your support and get them to cast their votes.

Head along to the Craft Business website ( and follow the voting instructions.

The Craft Business Awards, sponsored by the Creation Station, are the biggest and most well-respected in the crafting industry, celebrating everyone from small start ups to the giants of papercraft, knitting, stitching, haberdashery, beading, jewellery and creative stationery.

Sarah Cressall, founder of the Creation Station, said: “We are thrilled to be a part of Craft Business Awards, creativity is such a vital attribute, and celebrating these amazing craft businesses, is in turn celebrating creativity.”

The Craft Business Awards categories cover everything from independent shops and products, right up to big brands. Each category aims to celebrate and recognise excellence within our vibrant sector.

Winning a Craft Business Award can mean a lot to you and your business. Not only will you receive your trophy at a glitzy champagne reception at CHSI Stitches in February, enjoying the chance to meet not just the Craft Business magazine team, but the entire Aceville craft department’s journalists, but you can also look forward to extensive coverage in Craft Business magazine and its accompanying website and social media.

Last year’s awards received over 26,000 votes and reached over 115,000 people.

Voting for the awards will close on December 13, 2019.

A glittering panel of judges will pick the best of the bunch in the Elite Industry Awards category.

Editor Mark Hayhurst said: “The Craft Business Awards are in their 15th year now. Not only do they honour the hard work everyone puts into their companies and products, but they offer a feel-good factor that make handing out the prizes a real highlight of the team’s year.”

The closing date for voting is December 13, 2019.
