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.

Last Minute Changes – WE HAVE CLASS this Saturday

Sometimes you just have to go with the flow.  We were scheduled to have a day off from quilting this Saturday March 4 because the room we usually have class in will be used for another palace function.  But my day off was short lived when the Bishop Museum called and invited us to have our class there in their Atherton Halau.  So ladies we’re having quilting class.  If you haven’t made other plans come and join us at the oldest museum in Hawaii.  The Atherton Halau is located right outside the Bishop Museums main building near the entrance and gift shop.  You will need to pay parking or there’s a lot of street parking just outside the museum grounds.  Hope to see all of you there. I hope the ladies who called about class this Saturday will able to come after all.
