It’s been a busy year so again sad to say there will be no class on August 5 and we’ll  see everyone back on August 12.  But I’ll leave you with this amazing applique by Susan. Ti Leaf design with a floating lei  ready to be quilted.

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.

Tumble Weed… for our Nevada Family

Aloha Quilting Family and Friends.  Just a short note.  No class April 16.  The room is being used by the palace so we’ll be back to class on April 23.

… and because we have a day off….22 quilters will be “Painting With A Twist”.  Something different other than quilting.  It should be fun.

circleuluI know I just hate it when I have to be the bearer of bad news.  No class this week June 13 in honor of Kamehameha Day. We’ll see everyone back at class on June 20.  In the meantime congratulations to another quilter who cut out her new 45″ x 45 ulu wall hanging.  It’s going to be beautiful when it’s done.

Building Renovation Kanaina Building – Update May, 2017

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
