CRAFTober's First Joy of Crafting Show

I can't believe it's already CRAFTober! Seems like we were just celebrating Aloha Festivals! But here in Hawaii, there is always a reason to make a lei to wear or give away. So, our first guest shares the beauty of lei made from fresh flora and fauna.

Kuana Torres Kahele is well known for his musical talent and now he is sharing his lei making skills with  his "Make Lei" DVD.
Here, he shows us a basic lei made from coconut fronds while giving us some lei making tips! Kuana visited some of our stores in September and will be at the following stores in October:
Oct. 15th Kona Ace Hardware & Crafts from 10am - 12 noon
Oct. 16th Kamuela Ace Hardware & Crafts from 11am - 1pm 
Oct. 17th at Hilo Ben Franklin Crafts from 11 am - 1 pm.

The Holidays will soon be here, starting with Halloween! Do you have your costume yet? Well, here's a fun and easy idea that Alix from Market City shared with us. You can adapt it for adults and children. Do you know what it is? That's right, she's a piƱata!

And then we have our TeamHMSA on the show to share with us their new website and blog for Well Being. You should check it out, it's full of great information on how to take better care of your self in all different aspects of life, from food, exercise, mentally with CRAFTS and more! So awesome, we crafters always knew crafting was good for us! Learn more at

Lynelle, one of the crafties at HMSA made a photo collage letter for team member Moani. Great idea for a keepsake or gift!

So, I hope you can join us for this fun filled episode! Have a great week and Happy CRAFTober!
