Last year we were Wildcard Finalists in the Fiber Art category of this contest, and we were over the moon excited to have made it that far on our first try. This year we’d really, REALLY like to win!
Every year, the American Made Awards celebrate American makers in the areas of crafts, design, food, and style. This year we are again nominees in the category Fiber Crafts.
Here’s how it works. Martha’s staff chooses some finalists, and others are chosen by virtue of how much support they have. When you click on our Nominee Page, you have the opportunity to also click to share on Facebook or Twitter. That helps spread awareness of our work and shows support for our nomination. Then, if we are one of 500 entries chosen as finalists, voting begins on September 21st. Winners of the contest are awarded $10,000 in capital for their businesses, but more importantly, are given national exposure for what they do. Since we are committed to bringing a renaissance to rug hooking, much like as has taken place in knitting, we would very much appreciate your support.

Thank you so very much and happy hooking! – Beth & Jen
