Our Poakalani Quilting Family has gathered every Saturday from 9:30 – 12:00pm for 18 years to teach, learn, and enjoy the art of Hawaiian Quilting in the Kanaina building on the grounds of the Iolani Palace.
The Iolani Palace has always been generous, kind and instrumental in helping us to continue our weekly classes. It’s not only been our home every Saturday but it’s also the home of all Hawaii’s people. It’s a historical site filled with culture and history. We are always thankful to the Iolani Palace for given us a home to teach this treasured textile art.
That said I have a humble request. I know and understand many businesses, families and friends have been hit hard by the Covid19 lock down and so has our home the Iolani Palace.
I know many of you are struggling as I am but I’m hoping some how you can dig deep and either make a donation to the Iolani Palace or make a reservation to visit the palace on either Friday or Saturday for a very nominal fee.
Today I made my donation to the palace and I hope that if any of you have visited our class, taken a class with us, or just love to quilt please help us keep the palace open. When making a donation please reference the Poakalani Quilting Class or you can make it in Memory of John Serrao.
Below is the link for the donation & membership. (The Blue Iolani Palace Word just click on it)
The Donation button for the palace can be found in the top right hand corner of the linked page. Also if you shop on Amazon as much as I do please follow the link on the membership page when making any purchases. A portion of your purchase will go to the Palace.
Mahalo for helping us to save the Palace and keeping Hawaiian Quilting strong. Enjoy just a few pictures of our quilters
I know everyone has missed our weekly classes and Tuffy and I miss all of you. We pray everyday that this virus will end so we can get back to our classes. Until Then Malama Pono(Take Care).
