Kollabora, a new online community with inspirational DIY projects, tutorials, and the supplies to make them, is hosting a DIY Gift Lounge at this year's BUST Holiday Craftacular!
Join BUST and Kollabora for a make-and-take on Finger Crochet, Chip Bezel Jewelry, and Fabric Wrapped Bangles. These make great last minute gifts or eye-catching accessories for holiday parties! They'll also have tons of unique DIY gifts and kits on hand for sale, including Kollabora yarn, cross stitch and so much more--all perfect gifts for the crafty friend or family member that has everything.
Kollabora believes that we are what we make, and that people should have a creative alternative to just buying products. They should have the opportunity to make what they're inspired by, and that's why Kollabora aims to foster a real community. Their name, after all, comes from collaboro, the Latin word for working together: Kollabora's users and editorial team inspire and teach each other how to make things, which is what community is all about!
Every project on Kollabora feeds and fosters your creativity, and, above all, offers you the choice to make it yourself—a fun, unique and truly fulfilling alternative to simply buying an end product. The staff at Kollabora hopes that you'll share your adventurous experiences and expertise as they continue to craft their site into a wondrous, one-stop destination for everything you need to make something awesome.
Be sure to check out Kollabora's DIY Gift Lounge at the BUST Magazine Holiday Craftacular on Saturday, December 1 and Sunday, December 2 at 82 Mercer St. in SoHo. The Craftacular will be open from 11 A.M. to 7 P.M. both days.
