Handmade Community Superstar

Community is extremely important to us and the reason we started the Academy was to create a supportive place for people. As we began thinking about our awards for this show, we thought that it was important to honor someone who was creating the kind of community that is vital for people who have jobs that often require them to work in isolation.

We were not surprised at all that when we asked members on their ballot who they they thought was a Handmade Community Superstar, many of them had not only written in Lisa Cherry’s name, but also had paragraphs of praise for her.

WINNER: LISA CHERRY OF THE MAKERY
