Our second year at the Mollie Makes Handmade Awards! June 21, 2019 13:58 2 Comments
Last year Zoe and I had a fabulous time at the Mollie Makes Handmade Awards 2018 and we are ridiculously excited to be nominated again this year!
If you don't know Mollie Makes, it's a gorgeous modern crafting magazine and a bit of a bible for anyone interested in colour and creativity. Each year they hold their Handmade Awards, with categories like Best Workshop (the coolest category obvs!!) Best Small Business, Handmade Champion and more. The nominees get to go to a brilliant Awards Day with loads of activities, talks and things to do.
This is guests and nominees from last year out on our colour walk... can you spot Zoe and me? There's a few proper crafty slebs in there too! Everyone was so friendly and it was such a lovely atmosphere.
We were asked to do a presentation and PowerPoint didn't seem quite right so we made some massive crafty mood boards! It was blazing hot that day and as I carried them up Upper Street in Islington I kept worrying the glue was going to melt and everything would fall off! A couple of things did but it wasn't a disaster.
That year the award was won by the lovely Joanne Condon of Kyle Lane, who travelled from Ireland so made my journey from Muswell Hill seem like nothing!! We'd love to win this year, but getting nominated is enough of a boost that we'd be delighted even if we didn't.
If you'd like to see why we've been nominated... check out our current workshop! We're really pleased with the current programme, and as so many of them are sold out we hope you are too! All workshops are here
