What is a Cochenille Webinar...

In December of last year, Cochenille Design Studio started doing Webinars. We have done at least 3 or 4 each month since we started.

So what does a Cochenille Webinar entail? Well to begin with, if you want in, you need to be subscribed to our monthly email list, and keep an eye on your email for the release dates. Typically, they have sold out in less than 48 hours of emailing the dates and times.

What do you need? All you need is a computer with good speakers, and microphone will help. A mic is not required but is helpful to ask questions instead of having to type your questions in the chat area. It would be best to have a headset, as that will reduce the amount of feedback your computer produces and you won't have to be muted during the lecture. You can always use your phone to call in and have audio.

We use an internet service called GoToMeeting, and we send you an 'invite'. When you click on the link to the class, you may be asked to download software (especially, if it is your first time). You will need to allow it access.

We have also recently found out that for those on a Mac, an operating system of 10.5 or above is required.

You then simply log in at the time of the class (a bit before to make sure you don't have problems and aren't in a hurry). Then watch and listen to Susan as she gives her presentation. She does stop every so often to ask if there are questions, if there are, she answers them.

It's easy, not a scary process at all, even if you are allergic to new technology. If you have any questions please feel free to call Sonia 858-259-1698. Or if you have any subject or day and time suggestions feel free to email Here is a link to a list: April's Webinars
