Sharee Alpeche, a student in the Kauai Community College entrepreneurial class, was out doing her research Saturday at the Island Craft Fair (kudos to Debbie Yanagihara on coordinating this event) at the Church of the Pacific in Princeville.
Sharee said there is so much talent on this island, she wants to share the information so people can connect while helping the local economy and the crafters.
Isabella Nadeau is one of those unique crafters (Kauai Seashell Creation) who uses a 500-year old technique to turn shells into pieces resembling stained glass (except they don’t break when you drop them) — you just never know what you’ll find at craft fairs.
Kudos to Louis LaFratta and the North Shore Lions Club (Bill Troutman has a great basketball game scheduled for Saturday in Kilauea) on a great pancake breakfast! Kudos, too, to Gabri LaFratta for getting up early to help the club with kitchen duty after a long day of tennis Saturday.
