The “local” culture of the islands is made up of traditions from a  diverse group of people  from the original Hawaiian inhabitants  to the later migrants  from Japan, China, Philippines, Korea, Spain, Norway, Puerto Rico, Russia,  and of course Portugal.  John being half Portuguese was proud of his Portuguese people and what they contributed to the  “unique” island culture from the Ukulele to the Ono foods made in the  outdoor Portuguese oven.  This quilt was designed for the kindred family from the islands of the Azores and Madeira where most of the Portuguese migrants came from.

Building Renovation Kanaina Building – Update May, 2017

February 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
