I am pretty sure all of you have heard of Martha Stewart. She has been a driving force behind the craft movement in not only the United States but in the rest of the world. She has inspired many to take the plunge and pursue their dreams and start craft businesses.
Martha is now looking to find the new up and coming stars of the craft world. Along with the editors of Martha Stewart Living, she launched the Audience Choice Awards, a multimedia celebration of American artists, artisans and entrepreneurs.
So why are we telling you this? Well Heather Jones has been selected as a finalist and needs your help NOW!
Heather has been a supporter of Fat Quarterly from the beginning and has even contributed to the magazine. I am sure you all remember her amazing Anni quilt that featured in the Fall Inspired Special Issue.
Heather has won the Modern Quilt Guild’s Project Modern Challenge not once, not even twice, but an astonishing three times! And well deservedly too!
She has an amazing eye for colour. And her designs are always attention grabbing. If you don’t know Heather you need to run over to her website Olive and Ollie and find out about her right now.
We definitely think she has been rightfully recognised by Martha and her team. And now Heather needs our help. The winner of the award will be selected partially based on the number of votes they have received on the Martha Stewart American Made website. Voting is open now and runs through September 24.
Please could you all spare a moment to go over to the website and vote for Heather. Not just once, but as many times as you can between now and the deadline! You can vote once a day and every vote WILL make a difference.
