About the British Sewing Awards

One of the most important annual events in the crafting industry, the British Sewing Awards is run every year by Sew magazine. There are three stages to these awards: the nomination process starts in March, when the sewing and haberdashery community nominates its favourites in 26 categories. This is then shortlisted and put to a vote, along with bonus categories hand-picked by an expert judging panel. Finally, the overall winners are announced at the end of the year.
