Cochenille "Proportioned 4 You" Design Challenge

Cochenille Design Studio would like to announce our first of many design challenges to come.
As part of the release of Susan Lazear's NEW book "Proportioned 4 You" we would like to announce a design challenge for our customers who have purchased this product.
From now until August 31st we will be accepting project submissions for original designs using one of the seven patterns included in the book "Proportioned for you".
Submissions must include:
• Up to 5 high-resolution images (submission of images will grant permission for Cochenille's use on our website and publications)
• Title of the Garment
• Description of the garment, the pattern chosen as your starting point, and how you created it (knitting, sewing, combination, etc.)
• Materials you used to make your garment
• One paragraph bio of you
The winner of our contest will be featured on the front page of our website for the month of October! You will also be featured on our Blog, Facebook and we will tweet your accomplishments. To make it even sweeter, you will also receive a $50 redeemable coupon code (one time code) for the purchase of Cochenille products. For those who own a business, this will be an incredible opportunity to advertise what you do.
All submissions will be considered and judged on creativity, use of materials and execution.
We plan to also build a slideshow of honorable-mention submissions.

Color-aid Color Pak

The Color-aid Color Pak

At Cochenille we offer an design aids to assist in your creative endeavors. The Color-aid Color Pak contains 314 colored swatches and small enough to carry with you in a bag or purse. Use the book to find the closest match when you see a color or color combination that you like. Each chip has a number on the back, which allows you to record the color.

As part of our current Special, Cochenille Staff has included the key ring and took the time to mix the colors in RGB and we make this available with the Color Pak purchase. Look up the RGB formula on this chart for any color in the pak.

 This is an excellent Design Tool for any creative project!
