Naupaka

Naupaka

 

Naupaka – The legend of the Naupaka speaks about love lost.  One version tells the story of two lovers kept apart because they came from different social classes. One was banished to the mountain and the other to the sea.  Unable to live apart they both died from broken hearts.  Upon their graves grew the Naupaka, half flowers found near the ocean and the other in the mountains.  90″ x 90″Designed by John Serrao

The Naupaka is one of John’s favorite designs but on his quilts the legend continues where the lovers meet again and lives happily every after. The  flowers are designed close together reuniting in love.

Here are some wonderful legends of the Naupaka blossoms  Hawaii Aloha, Maui Canoe Club

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
