Whales In Motion

Lei Niho Palaoa

Hawaiian Women Wearing Lei Niho Palaoa

Whales in Motion –  John’s newest Sea life design for our amazing ocean friends.  45″ x 45″  Designed by John Serrao

The Hawaiian word for whale is “Palaoa”  It is also the name of the Hawaiian neck ornament used by the Hawaiian chiefs. The ivory hook on the lei/necklace is called the “Niho Palaoa”  because it is made out of the tooth of the whale suspended by braided strands of human hair.  Worn by the chiefs to ward of any evil intentions of visitors and families.

Building Renovation Kanaina Building

Aloha Everyone, We were all  aware that the Kanaina Building was scheduled for renovations a year ago.  We are 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 there through the month of March but haven't gotten any update for the month of April.  We have found a temporary home when the renovations begin and will let you know when the time gets closer.. Thank you for your patience.   Cissy

Please mark your calendar March 25, 2017.
