You can tell how rare or popular a flower is when you find very few images on the Internet and for the Mauna Loa Vine very few images exist.   So when John was visiting Hana years ago and came across the Mauna Loa Vine he was excited.  The Mauna Loa is a cherished flower in the islands because it is very difficult to find.  The flowers were made into beautiful Mauna Loa Lei’s and if you ever received such a lei you knew you were special.  The Mauna Loa flower is one of three flowers that will not past agriculture inspection in Honolulu that’s why I call it the locals flower.  45″ x45″  Designed by John Serrao/js650-bk7

No Class June 9 – Kamehameha Day Parade

May 24, 2018May 24, 2018
Please mark your calendars and we'll see everyone back at class on June 16.  Just a side note.  When anyone asked where our quilting classes are held my mother Poakalani would tell them, "Look for the Kamehameha Statue... his out stretched arm points to the building we quilt at across the street."  It's true and oh so funny.

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 December but haven't gotten any update for the month of January or February.  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
