Craft retailer and shopping TV channel, Create and Craft, are honoured to partner with Aceville publications to support the 2018 British Sewing Awards; a well-established event that is voted for by SEW magazine readers.

The 2018 British Sewing Awards nominations have been cast, and it’s now time to for sewing enthusiasts to cast their votes, which can be done on the SEW website, here: www.sewmag.co.uk/awards. Everyone who votes will be automatically entered to win one of five fabulous prizes, courtesy of Create and Craft:

- A Butterick EB6100 computerised machine
- A sewing bundle worth more than £500
- A Singer One Plus computerised model
- £100 credited to your Create and Craft account
In addition to the reader votes, this year SEW have also enlisted a panel of expert judges; Frances Tobin, Stuart Hillard, Hannah Read-Baldry and Wayne Hemingway MBE, to help choose a selection of the winners.
Voting is open until 15th November 2018. Once the voting stage is over, the ultimate runners-up and winners will then be presented with their awards and the finalists will be featured in the March issue of Sew magazine, on sale in early 2019.
