Beyond Measure has been shortlisted for a Craft Business award!

How exciting!  I entered this a few weeks ago as I thought it would be nice to be part of something that acknowledges all the hard work that goes into running a small business.   The awards are sponsored by Association for Creative Industries and recognise all types of businesses, including retailers, manufacturers and publishers.

I was delighted to find out that I have been shortlisted for the ‘Best Independent Retailer’, which is voted for by the public. Now I won’t lie, I am up against some pretty big names and other fantastic independents, so every vote will help.  Which is why I am asking you, wonderful customers and readers, if you have been happy with the goods or service you have received from Beyond Measure, if you would please take a few minutes to cast a vote for me.  There are several categories to vote in, but my category is up first so easy to find. You can vote for me here.

Voting is open until 31 January 2018.  Whatever the outcome, a massive thank you in advance for any votes but above all for all your support and positivity over the past year.  It is the customers who really make a business and you are definitely the best! So a huge thank you to everyone who has ordered from me or been to see us at shows.  It’s great to see the business grow over the last few years and I am really grateful for your support!  Here’s a little pic of me and Katie at Nottingham Yarn Festival in November. Katie has been a great help this year and I think she might have enjoyed some of our wool show road trips too I hope.

Wishing you the best of Christmas holidays and a wonderful 2018!  See you in the New Year,
