The Best of Craft Awards have evolved to become a renowned highlight of the crafting calendar, and the nominees for this prestigious occasion have now been chosen and shortlisted for 2019 by the dedicated readers of Crafts Beautiful and PaperCrafter magazines.  Recognised as a genuine mark of quality within the craft industry, the Best of Craft Awards prides itself in commemorating key brands and personalities as well as drawing attention and recognition to the smaller independent stores across the UK, authors and influencers.

This year, new categories have been introduced to reflect the trends for 2019, with additions that include Crafting Woman and Crafting Man of the Year, Mixed Media Must-Haves, Most Inspiring Craft Book and Most Reliable Adhesive.
