The Poakalani & Co. Website was started in 1996 to share with the general public our Hawaiian quilting experience. We felt that we needed to share not only the finished quilts but also the cultural and especially the teaching aspects of Hawaiian quilting. It was our greatest desire to inspire and encourage others to pick up their own needle and thread and begin their own tradition and cultural legacy. By doing this it is helping to fulfill our mission to preserve the "Art of Hawaiian Quilting". We would like to thank all the quilters for allowing us to share their quilts on this website so we can continue to inspire others to help preserve not only their own personal story and tradition but one of Hawaii's most treasured Art.
