We’re thrilled to have been able to chat with Emma Bridgewater recently - you can read what she has to say about turning a creative idea into a business in our May/June magazine - which, with more pages than ever, is brimming with ideas & inspiration and sound business tips.

The waiting is over, here they are, our craft&design Selected Award Winners for 2013, including our Maker of the Year, the Gold Award Winner who polled the most votes - our Specialist Judges had some lovely things to say about them all.
Many congratulations to our Winners and Finalists, this year's online voters had well over 1,100 designer makers to choose from, so it's an amazing achievement for them all.
Huge thanks to the thousands of people who voted, none of this could have happened without you! And a very special thank you to our lovely judges who all did a wonderful job!
