Featured Member Interview
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I actually can't really remember how I found CO+K. I want to say that I found it through watching Threadbanger, but I am not certain. It is actually because of Threadbanger that I wanted to get more involved in the crafting community and so I decided to do it through CO+K.
What projects are you currently working on?
Since I just moved, I haven't really been working on much. But before that, I was really into T-shirt reconstruction and did a number of those, many of which I haven't uploaded yet.

What does your craft space look like?
My craft space is pretty much my bedroom desk, which holds my sewing machine, and floor, which is my cutting space. I would love to show you pictures, but i recently moved and don't have it set up yet.
Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?
I probably use my sewing scissors and sewing machine the most. Second to those would be my hot glue gun.
What do you craft along to?
When I craft, I usually just turn on Pandora or open my Grooveshark playlist. But other times, I "watch" one of my favorite movies.
Annie's Most Popular Projects
My favorite type of craft is definitely sewing and dressmaking; I especially love remaking old clothing into something new.

If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?
If i could learn anything, I think I would want to learn glass blowing. It is such an amazing art, but is quickly dying out because of manufacturing.
Who are your crafting heroes?
I absolutely love Rob and Corrine from Threadbanger since they are the ones who really got me started. I also love Secret life of a Bionerd and Anne or Shine.
