We chat to Laura, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to knit a Winter Pansies blanket.

I am a designer/maker living in the South East UK with my husband, young son, and dog. I work as a creative designer & consultant and get to spend a good portion of my time working as a craft author. After studying an English & Creative Studies Degree, I completed my post graduate studies in Journalism and am former Editor of Craft Business magazine, the leading UK trade publication. I launched Sew magazine, a UK monthly contemporary stitching title, in 2009 and continued as Editor until 2012, leaving to pursue my freelance career. I am passionate about textile design and enjoy all aspects of knitting, crochet, sewing and everything in between.

How did you find CO+K and why did you join?

I found it by accident on the internet, and thought it looked quite interesting.

What projects are you currently working on?

I am always working on knit and crochet designs, with usually 5 or more works in the queue. But the last few days, I have been designing Christmas Ornaments using paper tubes from paper towels.

We're at the BFI London Film Festival, being inspired by Keira Knightley and her new film Colette.

Come behind the scenes at Spiced for a #KitchenTour and see David's kitchen in New York.

The huge island in the middle! When we first moved into this house, the "island" was a small, movable cart with a cutting board on top. That worked for a year or two, but when we decided to install granite countertops, we also added a much larger island in the middle. The granite for the island was cut from the same piece of stone as the rest of the countertops, so it matches the kitchen perfectly. Plus, it gives me a ton of room to spread out and work on recipes!

Come behind the scenes at Iris Impressions Art for a #CraftRoomTour and see Iris's art room in London.

It's so personal and my safe space. Everything is set up to allow me to create my art easily.

We head to Malaysia to meet #FeaturedMember Harmini who believes in creating magic through art!

How did you find CO+K and why did you join?

I found CO+K while randomly browsing through some artsy blogs and immediately fell in love with it. There was so many cool ideas I absolutely had to try and contribute as well. I liked the idea of an arts and crafts community that was easy to use.

What projects are you currently working on?

More dreamcatchers! The ideas and themes just keep flowing through and it can't stop! I'm always really excited about the next one I create because I never know how it turns out.

Paper Dandy's Horrorgami

Shelf 41jdy8ncx5l

We chat to Marc a.k.a Paper Dandy, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to make a Haunted House!

I’m a kirigami artist and design director. I started making kirigami about 3 years ago. It makes me feel like a kid again. Kirigami is cutting and folding paper. In it’s simplest form it’s making a snow flake from paper to more complex architectural replicas.

Come on a #KnittingNook tour of Nikki's house in the woods in Volcano, Hawaii.

It's peacefulness, it's inspiration. I came from the city back to my hometown of Volcano, Hawaii, and every day I find myself taking a deep breath of gratitude. It's a smaller space, but it feels more expansive, particularly since I can work anywhere!
