I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Colette Patterns is in the running for the Martha Stewart American Made Awards.


This in itself is super cool.  It’s great to see small independent makers being recognised and rewarded.

More cool is the fact that, should she win, Sarai is giving the whole of the $10,000 prize money to her employees.



The thing is that it’s US who can win this for them. WE need to vote.  We can vote up to 6 times a day every day from now until the 22nd September.

And they need our votes.

Colette is currently in second place, being pipped to the post by a scrapbooking company.  Now, we can’t have that, can we?

So come on…click on this link and vote.  Today, and as many times as you can.
