Aloha. Here is the newest book by Jim Widess. Hot off the press. How to Weave Authentic Hawaiian Lauhala Bracelets. For weavers who don’t live in Hawaii, there are lots of materials that can be substituted to weave the patterns in this book. Jim says this was a really fun project and he hopes it helps keep weaving alive on Hawaii. You can find Jim on Facebook and share your reviews of his new book.
