This year has been bananas. Truly unreal. We've worked harder than we ever have to make our dream of an awards show fitting of the talents of inspiring handmade businesses a reality. And can we just say we have absolutely been blown away by how much support we have received from amazing folks like you?
That said one of our big dreams for the show was to honor a handmade artist who had history of kicking butt in business and making things with a Master Maker award. Someone who was blazing the trail for other handmade artists to make the cool things they make. And we couldn't be happier to announce...
We will be honoring embroidery artist and kick ass business lady Jenny Hart of Sublime Stitching with our Master Maker award at our awards show!
Jenny is a pioneer in making embroidery modern and fun, with designs like famous rockers, robots and tattoos. As the tagline for Sublime Stitching says, "This ain't your gramma's embroidery." She has had such an impact on the art form that she has some of her work up at the Smithsonian (how cool is that?). Her talents as an artist are only rivaled by her entrepreneurial savvy and generous spirit in supporting the handmade community.
So, it is only fitting that we honor Jenny for her many talents with the Master Maker award and are excited that she we will be at the awards show on April 26 to accept the award! Get your tickets now as event seating is limited.
