…okay not so blue but oh so warm. Humidity in the islands these past few weeks have been record breaking.  So put your quilting aside and applique is the name of the game.  Our Bible Series with designs of flowers mentioned in the Bible and found throughout the regions where Christianity was born.  

…In the year 1820 on the Brig “Thaddeus”  a meeting between the missionary women and several high ranking wives of Kamehameha I gathered to what is known today as the first quilting circle.  It was the start of an amazing cultural art that is still practiced  today. The missionaries also brought with them a new religion and the teachings of the Bible.  With the Bible the  Hawaiian were introduced to  amazing stories of far off places, people and especially  the three divine virtues of hope, love and charity.  This book is dedicated to all those who find comfort in the “Word” .

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
