We've been busy giving the CO+K office a makeover this month with the help of Zazzle, who let us design our own custom fabric and sent some office supplies for us to get creative with. Learn how-to sew a handy sewing machine cover, customise an animal ear phone case, reupholster some shabby office chairs, turn a whiteboard into a calendar and sew an embroidery hoop sewing kit.

Come behind the scenes at Vikalpah and tour Sahana's master bedroom craft space in New York.
The favorite thing about my craft space is, it is spacious and have enough daylight as it has two large windows side by side.
PixieFey recreates the quirky style of Penelope Garcia from TV Show, Criminal Minds.
Penelope Garcia has a fun, quirky style that I love. Knee length dresses and skirts teamed with cardigans and big, bold accessories. Often changes her hair colour sometimes adding bright streaks. Wears some amazing spectacles.

We head to St Joseph, Missouri to meet Lee Rose, a ska-gypsy who takes her craziness out on art and crafts!
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I had idea for several projects which when I searched other crafting websites didn't turn anything up, but I noticed consistently when I was searching the internet that Co+K had something like what I was looking for. Between that and the ability to save the projects I liked, I was hooked! Now I'm on here more than anywhere else.
What projects are you currently working on?
I've been trying to find a way to blend my art-painting with my love of crafts by adding fibers, cut-outs, embossing, stamps and stitches. I'm teaching myself to bookbind. And between all that I've been making up a new curriculum for classes to teach at a new venue.Read the rest of the interview »
