There are the Grammys for musicians and the Oscars for filmmakers. Now crafters will have The Craftys for crafters. The team at CraftFoxes has put together an exciting awards event to celebrate the best in craft across the nation.

From April 28 to March 26, 2014, our competition will be accepting nominations for Craftys awards (you can also nominate your own work). This celebration of creators gives anyone the chance to win as much as $1,000 for an amazing handmade piece.

Categories include sewing/ quilting, knitting / crochet, best young crafter (under 18) and even best curated DIY Pinterest board. You can check out more at The

The list of celebrity judges is a passionate team of craft-fanatics, including Huffington Post's Brie Dyas, Brooklyn Craft Company's Brett Bara, Mark Montano (author of "Big Ass Book of Crafts"), Nick Jr.'s Lasette Canady, Instructables' editor Wade Wilgus and several other craft celebrities.

For those who vote on their fave craft, there's a chance to win one of the giveaway prizes from Red Heart Yarns, Blick Art Supplies, WeRMemory Keepers, or ILovetoCreate.
