Hapuu Fern – The curls of the young lacy fronds slowly opens  into larger leaves that can grow up to 15  feet in length and the tree 15-20 feet tall. Found mostly in the wetlands of the islands the Hapuu held water and helped the Hawaiians survive during times of drought and famine.  45″ x 45″  Designed by John Serrao/js659-bk8, js641-bk7

The Hapuu Fern is my favorite tree fern that was once abundant on all the Hawaiian islands but now only found  on Hawaii Island.  Over harvesting, diminishing rainforest and housing development has reduced the hapu’u stands drastically.  Click on the link to read about this beautiful Native Island Fern from the University of Hawaii College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources  CLICK HERE

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 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
