We have a side room in the quilting class called the “overflow” room. When the main room fills to capacity the “overflow” room is used.  Well, in the past few months we’ve had to use the “overflow” room  We love it that there are so many wanting to quilt Hawaiian.  They age from 9 – 83.  Great classes, amazing quilters and friends.

Real Proud of our family of quilters on Oahu and in Japan for one of the best Hawaiian Quilt Exhibits. Thank you for taking care of us in Yokohama and thank you for your gift of aloha the “Olympic Quilt.”  Cut and basted in Japan, appliqued on Oahu and returned and quilted in Japan. It was an amazing surprise for John and the quilt is beautiful.  But most of all thank you for quilting the Traditional Hawaiian Way.  Share it with the world so it will continue on.  We ♥ all of you.

February 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
