Na Makua Christmas Craft Show

Just finished the Na Makua Christmas Craft Fair in Hilo and despite the rain, the turnout as usual was great as was the entertainment.

One of our big sellers was the Ohe Kapala bamboo-stamped silk scarves we offered for the first time this year, thanks to the classes Amy and I took from Dalai Tanahy at the Honolulu Museum of Art. You can see them in the post below. We had some that were the original cream color but the really popular ones were either dyed in soft warm pastels or bright Hawaiian colors of red/orange/green as well as a few ombre scarves in graduated colors.  We plan to offer lots more of these in 2017.

Our devore and shibori sarves (which we wrap around a pole with string, compress and dip in dye to give us our designs) will be showing up under many Christmas trees this year if the givers don't keep them for themselves.

And our other new product in 2016, the shrug that doubles as a scarf, sold out at this show. Sorry, they went so fast we didn't even have time to take a picture. We'll be replenishing our stock for the Cherry Blossom festival the first Saturday in Februaruy in Waimea. If you want to find us there, we're inside at the Hawaiiann Quilt show in the building directly across from Kahilu theatre from 9-3.

the bamboo stamping is very much like the tattoo art so popular.

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers? online banking
