4 reasons to vote in the British Sewing Awards

Don’t miss out on the chance to vote for your stitchy favourites! The British Sewing Awards is run every year by Sew magazine, and they’re made up of three stages: the nomination process started in May, when you, the sewing and haberdashery community, nominated your go-tos in seven categories. This was then shortlisted, and we’re thrilled to reveal that the leading lights you’ve been loving and using are being put to a vote right now, along with bonus categories hand-picked by our expert panel. Finally, the overall winners will be announced at the beginning of 2019! Sounds like fun, right? If you’re not already convinced, here are four reasons why you’d be totally bonkers not to get involved!

Goodies!
