08 Jun We’re finalists at the Mollie Makes Handmade Awards 2015!
Excited to have been shortlisted for this years Mollie Makes Handmade Award. Woop woop!
I first came up with the idea nearly a year ago and it’s been lingering in my brain for a while and evolving over time. I mentioned the idea to Nick Hand who is a co-founder of and runs The Letterpress Collective after meeting him at 2014 Do Lectures where I was a speaker (see the 20 min video of my talk here). I thought it could work really well to stitch through card that had been letterpress printed and these two old traditions of letterpress and embroidery combined to make a contemporary kit would not only celebrate these two crafts but also tell a new story.
I’m going to be honest and say that I really hope we win. The prizes look really useful and include a choice of mentoring, coaching, website analysis or photography tuition from the super-skilled Blogtacular team, plus a feature in Mollie Makes.
Wish us luck!:) We find out at the end of this week eek x
