js635-bk6Canoe Paddling Waikiki Beach Canoe Paddling is one of very few Hawaiian Sports that is competitively practiced today.  Competing in different divisions from Keiki, to High School , as well as adult and Senior canoe clubs it is an amazing sport that is seeped in old Hawaiian traditions.  45″ x 45″  Designed by John Serrao

Yes, John’s design does have sails on his canoe because the canoes were also used for fishing as well as travel.

Years ago while traveling to Jacobs Pillow in Massachusetts we had the opportunity to go canoeing on one of the many lakes in the area. Upon reaching the lake and preparing to board the canoe we saw that a major part of the canoe was missing, THE OUTRIGGER. We Hawaiians have Outriggers on our canoes to help with the balance and stability of the canoe on rough waters. While we did go canoeing and had a fun experience it was nice to come home to our Outrigger canoes in Hawaii. John designed this quilt to document the Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe as a symbol of travel.

Aloha Everyone, We were all  aware that the Kanaina Building was scheduled for renovations a year ago.  We are 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 there through the month of March but haven't gotten any update for the month of April.  We have found a temporary home when the renovations begin and will let you know when the time gets closer.. Thank you for your patience.   Cissy
