Kamehameha II

 

Like the Hula and the Hawaiian Chants of Old making a quilt in memory of  a King, Queen, Friend and loved one brings honor to them. This quilt made back in the 1990’s  by Joomi Shiroma depicts whales and symbols of Hawaii prominent during the reign of Kamehameha II.  Our beloved King was born in 1797 and reigned from 1819 to 1824.  Unfortunately in 1824 he died in England with his wife Kamamalu.  90″ x 90″  Designed by John Serrao, Quilted by Joomi Shiroma

The Hawaiian Helmets of Old and Tabu Stick are shown in this quilt to symbolize traditional Hawaii, while the whales and fire and the center of the quilt symbolize a changing world coming to the Hawaiian people.  Whaling season was at it’s peak during the reign of Kamehameha II.

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
