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 April, when the sewing and haberdashery community nominates its favourites. 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.

This is your chance to let us know what your much-loved brands and products are in the sewing world. Readers who completed the online form will automatically be entered into our prize draw. We will now shortlist the top choices in each category.

Once we have received your nominations, we’ll count up all the responses and pull together a shortlist of the most popular nominees in each category. We will then unveil the list and give you the chance to vote for your favourites.

You will now have the chance to vote for your favourites from the shortlisted companies. These awards are highly valued by the biggest names in the industry as they’re voted for by you! Cast your vote and you’ll automatically receive our exclusive capsule boxset download.

Look out for a future issue of Sew magazine, where we reveal all of the winning and highly commended designers, shops and brands in this year's awards. This issue will hit the newsstand in late 2021.
