Bird of Paradise

Tomiko lives in Kobe, Japan and we had the amazing opportunity to meet 20 years ago when she first started attending Poakalani’s Hawaiian quilting class when  we were teaching at the Queen Emma Summer Palace.   I am honored and humbled to call Tomiko my sister of the heart.  She is one of the best appliquer and quilter of Hawaiian quilting. She is also known for her binding and unique quilting lines that she uses to enhance her quilts.  If you ever have a chance to take classes from her you can say you are learning from one of the BEST.

Many Hawaiian quilts tell stories of legends, births, favorite flowers, and even historical events. Some conveys hope.  This quilt was designed and quilted by my sister of the heart for John who is going through some difficult health issues.  Designed with some elements of the Sumo Yokozuna  wrestlers attire it’s Kumu Kimi’s wish that it will bring hope and healing to John. Thank you Kumu Kimi for such an awesome gift of the heart and may it not only ease his pain but comfort his soul.

Building Renovation Kanaina Building – Update May, 2017

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
