The Craftys are the annual awards that honor the best craft projects, bloggers, and designers. It’s like the red carpet for crafters. It even culminates in a live broadcast of the awards show from New York City in February, 2017. With categories for all of your favorite crafts, including sewing, crochet, jewelry, general crafts, and more, the Craftys represent the best and brightest in the crafting community. This year even showcases innovative new categories like baby crafts and “geek” crafts!
How can you participate? Nominate your favorite craft blogger or nominate yourself before January 9th, 2017!
Submit a phenomenal craft project with photos, along with your information or the information of your favorite blogger. Even if you don’t have a blog, your gorgeous project can still be a winner. If you usually only show your work to friends and family, this is a great way to earn some recognition for your creativity!
Are there prizes? Yes, of course! Each category winner receives $200, and a “Best in Show” award will receive $1,000. Also be sure to visit The Craftys website for giveaway contests from Red Heart Yarn and more.
Also, in case you were wondering, a lot of your favorite people are involved with The Craftys. Judges for the event include Yolanda Soto Lopez, Beth Kingston, Ed Roth, Galit Lebow, Marisa Pawelko, Marly Bird, Vickie Howell, Mark Montano, and Amber Kemp-Gerstel. HGTV’s Laurie March, world champion skater Tai Babilonia, and singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb will also be in judges’ chairs for this year’s awards!
Your favorite craft companies, including Darice, Red Heart Yarn, Tuttle Books, FaveCrafts, TueNight, Babble, FoodStirs, and more are also involved. It’s going to be a virtual party, and you’re all invited.
