CPSA is pleased to announce our new corporate patron, Crafter's Companion!
Crafter's Companion is an art materials distributor, providing everything from drawing supplies to crafting supplies and everything in between. They have websites based here in the United States as well as the UK, making it easy for so many to access their much-needed art supplies.
Speaking of education, instruction is obviously important to this company. They have CD/DVDs for sale online, and the Crafter's Companion Blog is a goldmine of inspiration, ideas, and tutorials. From card making to decorative box construction, you will find enough projects to last a lifetime.
Crafter’s Companion’s main reason for joining is to promote a new line of colored pencils, Spectrum Noir. These wax based pencils come in 120 colors, but they are uniquely packaged in 5 separate tins of 24 colors. There is no duplication of color in the five ranges, which are Primaries (a balanced mixing range), Essentials (secondaries and variations), Marine (mostly blues and browns), Florals (reds, yellows and purples) and Nature (landscape greens and browns). Look for these pencils and a range of accessories to reach your favorite stores very soon!
As our newest patron, Crafter's Companion will donate awards for CPSA shows and products for door prizes at our annual convention. We very much appreciate their patronage.
These folks have a wonderful organization and a creative atmosphere. Let’s all welcome them to our colored pencil family!
