hmmm. may have to go to that benfranklin next time!

Haha, sorry I am a teenager (yes, that is supposed to explain it all, yet it seems to be lacking at the same time *sigh*)

i still haven't made it to flora-dec...and where is this tricky parking lot so i know when/if i go there?

what about bead-it? anyone go there? and how does it compare to ben franklin's bead shop in mapunapuna?

I've never been to the Ben Franklin bead shop, but I have been to Bead it! and I really like it. I'm originally from California (Ocean Beach) and I'm used to having tons of hippie crafting supplies EVERYWHERE. it seems like every craft store here only sells items for Hawaiian crafts? of course, I have 3 kiddos, so I don't get a bunch of time to go searching about.  Grin if you're ever in Ocean Beach, CA....check out The Black Bead. it'll blow your mind!

I dunno if anyone checks this thread anymore but where are all the yarn stores around here? My local Ben Franklins only has Red Heart and novelty stuff, and while I have a love for Red Heart it really mirrors a deep deep hate for novelty yarn. Also I need wool. (I'm sending stuff to the pacific NW)
Help anyone? Kiss

YO! Need a bag full of novelty eyelash yarn in various and wonderful colors? Swap with me! PM for details and such.

rad kit, i don't live in hawaii anymore, but a few years back (maybe in 2004 or 2005) before Ben Franklin began carrying better knitting supplies (like bamboo needles, not yarn) I went to a place in a highrise in chinatown, Isle Knit, i think it was called.

This is the address and phone number: Isle Knit 1188 Bishop St Ste 1403 Phone: (808) 533-0853 (so you can call to see if it's still there, or if they have what you want) it was a very tiny place, and i didn't buy yarn the one time i went there, so i'm not really sure of the selection.

also, there's a group called Aloha Knitters (they used to be a SNB), they have a myspace page, and i'm sure you could find good shops through them: aloha knitters: http://www.myspace.com/alohaknitters

hope that helps....(oh, have to tried walmart? i remember that the walmart near ala moana would have ok yarn (in the fall/winter)
