We chat to #FeaturedMember Chikjade_Design in Delaware who loves sewing and making handbags.
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I found CO+K by searching for easy patterns to see when I was first starting to get into sewing hardcore. I joined because it was a social network of like minded people who love to create and share.
What projects are you currently working on?
I run a business, so I'm always designing new handbags. I recently started making wallets, which was a learning curve for me. Took me awhile before I developed my skills to a point where I would be confident sending it to a customer, but I've been able to get there. I'm my toughest critic, so if I'm happy I know others will be too.Read the rest of the interview »
My name is Apollo and I’m a British/Russian high school student and illustrator living in the UK. This year, I'm applying to study Animation at uni, so we'll see how that goes.
In my spare time I enjoy playing Dungeons and Dragons and listening to podcasts, both of which are my biggest inspirations. I love having a story behind my work, so drawing things from my D&D campaigns is very rewarding for me.
As someone who wants to go into animation, I enjoy drawing my characters in exaggerated poses or with a wide variety of face expressions - currently, my favourite subject matter is goblins, because their faces are so expressive and fun to play around with. I also love character design, and making characters who are very distinct from one another is always a fun challenge.
I'm most active on my instagram, where I post daily, so check it out if you want to see more of my work (@apollinares).
Come on a #CraftRoomTour of Cathe Holden’s inspired barn in Petaluma, California.
My favorite thing about my studio is that it is welcoming, and creativity is accessible to all who enter.

Hello! My name is Krista Aasen and I'm a self-declared "housie". That just means that I love all things house and home related: crafting, decorating, DIY projects, and organizing. I share all kinds of home related projects on my blog, The Happy Housie, and from this grew the opportunity to create and write a book on one of my favourite DIY craft projects: unique ways to decorate wooden letters!
