Just before Christmas we were very excited to hear that our new Embroidered Rabbit Egg Cosy had been shortlisted for the Gift of the Year Award 2018 in the Design & Craft Category. This category consists of products that are designed and made in smaller studios with the personal touch.
This meant that as soon as we returned to the studio after our Christmas break we had to make and send three special samples of our cosy to be viewed by the panel of judges.
Running for over 40 years the Gift of the Year Awards aims to find the most original and innovatively designed products that could be given as gifts. Our cosy will be judged on several criteria including the WOW factor, quality of manufacture, and customer appeal. Just reading the long list makes our palms sweaty!
Based on the judges scores, one overall winner will be chosen from each category, with two or three products being highly commended. We are incredibly honoured just to be shortlisted and will be keeping everything crossed when the winners are announced after the awards ceremony at Spring Fair on Sunday 4th February.
