Eclipse

The Sun Eclipse of July 11, 1991 was only seen in parts of Hawaii moving over the Pacific across Mexico, Central America, South America and ending in Brazil.  People from all over the world flocked to Hawaii, well the Big Island, where the full Sun Eclipse could be witnessed.  Tia Waxman one of our quilters was one of those people.  She actually booked her hotel accommodations two years in advance to witness this rare sight and she was so mesmerized by this event when she returned to quilting class the following week  she asked John to please design the “Eclipse Quilt”  a quilted memory of her once in a life time adventure.  Using a half fold instead of the traditional 1/8 fold John designed her “Eclipse Quilt”. Behind the palm trees where the hibiscus bush and the laua’e plant grows,  looking out toward the ocean, the stars made their appearance only for a little while  during the total Eclipse of the Sun.    45″ x 60″  Designed by John Serrao Quilted by Tia Waxman

The next eclipse which will be seen across the continuous United States and parts of Hawaii will be on August 21, 2017. Click the link to find your best viewing  location.

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
