Mamo - Yellow Lehua

There were two types of Mamo patterns when my Tutu Correa quilted back in the 1920’s.  Sometimes the Mamo represented the beautiful Yellow Lehua Blossoms and sometimes the Mamo bird known for it’s yellow feathers and used to make the feather capes for Hawaii’s Na Alii.  This quilt is for the fragile Yellow Lehua Blossoms. 45″ x 45″ Designed by John Serrao/js642-bk7

Yellow Lehua

Did you know that there is a tradition that you never pick a lehua flower because it will cause it to rain and that the bark and the young leaves were used for various medicinal preparation.  Learn all about the Ohia Lehua by following this link http://www.instanthawaii.com/cgi-bin/hi?Plants.ohia  or click on the photo.

February 19, 2017February 19, 2017
Aloha Everyone, We were all  aware that the Kanaina Building was scheduled for renovations a year ago.  We are now getting closer to the renovation date so we will be on a week to week notice for the quilting classes.  Please keep checking weekly for an updated status.  We will be at the Iolani Palace  through the month of June but haven't gotten any update for the month of July.  We have found a temporary home at the Bishop Museum when the renovations begin and will let you know when the time gets closer.. Thank you for your patience.   Cissy
