faurmagAloha Amazing Quilters and Friends,

I know I haven’t posted in several days but I’m trying really hard  to get my pattern shop back on-line, which is causing a few problems.  Hopefully by the end of this month.  Also I’m afraid I got stuck watching a Korean Drama on Hulu.  I love my Korean Drama’s.  Good news  I’m done with the drama and they all lived happily every after.  So back to to my website and posting.

Also see the attached photo of  “Awesome John” in the Japanese “Frau” magazine. We’re so proud of him and all he does for the class and of course Hawaiian quilting.

Building Renovation Kanaina Building – Update May, 2017

February 19, 2017February 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 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
