Cooperative Press maker survey
Hello! If you weren't directed here from the Cooperative Press mailing list, welcome! CP is an independent book publisher specializing in fiber arts and craft business titles. We are expanding our product lines in 2017 and would love input from the maker / creative community so we can focus our efforts on what interests people most.

Our team (authors, freelancers, staffers and more) have a very broad range of talents and skills so it's tough to narrow down! We would love to do ALL the things, but that's just not possible.

As a thank you for your help, we will be giving everyone something for their time, plus one random participant will win a $100 Amazon gift card.
