    What is the Martha Stewart American Made program? 

    American Made is a program that spotlights the maker, supports the local, and celebrates the handmade. We honor and showcase people who have turned their passion for quality craftsmanship and well-designed goods into a way of life. 

    What is the Martha Stewart American Made event?

    The American Made event is an annual networking and educational ticketed program in New York City, during which creative entrepreneurs, or those looking to turn their passion into a business, come together for informative, inspirational one-on-one conversations and panel discussions hosted by Martha, Martha Stewart Living editors, and innovators and industry leaders. It is also where we celebrate the annual Award Winners. Check back later for more information.

    What is the Martha Stewart American Made Awards competition?

    Each year Martha Stewart Living honors a group of makers, craftspeople, small-business owners, and innovators from across the country in four key categories, crafts, design, food, and style. They are recognized for their dedication to creative entrepreneurship and to building successful businesses and communities. These individuals earn the title of American Made Award Winner.
