Dean Wilson says; “Firstly I’d like to thank everyone who voted for me. This is the second year I have won this award and the shows just keep getting better. The presentation of products and services via TV is a powerful, route to market. The channel has the ability to truly demonstrate and explain the features, functionality, and benefits of products, particularly when faced with complexity that the viewer may not understand. I also get the opportunity to work with the best craft experts in the business and it’s a pleasure to be able to inspire and entertain the viewers with their passion for crafting.”
Crafts Beautiful says; “The Awards are now in their 11th year and have a real importance and standing within the crafts industry and to be awarded GOLD is a genuine reflection of how much hard work and dedication it takes to be successful and recognised in this thriving marketplace.”
Create and Craft has also won GOLD for the Best TV Shopping Channel. The channel is renowned for the quality of their craft shows with live demonstrations from the country’s leading craft experts covering papercrafting, sewing, knitting, jewellery making and home décor. The award, which is voted for by readers of Crafts Beautiful and Papercrafter, two of the UK’s leading craft magazines, shows recognition of the channel and what it offers the viewer.
The award ceremony will be take place at the Craft, Hobby & Stitch International show at the NEC, Birmingham on Monday 22nd February 2016
