Back in Tutu’s days they used large quilting frames they called horses today we use 14″ quilting hoops because our homes are smaller and the hoops are more portable.
Hawaii Quilt Guild.The Hawaii Quilt Guild (HQG), also known as Na Po`e Humukuiki O Hawai`i, was founded in 1984, with the purpose of preserving the traditions, culture and history of quilting, and to promote the knowledge and understanding of the art of quilting through continuing education services for members and public education activities. Since that time, the Guild has grown to exceed 120 members, not only on Oahu, but also throughout the outer islands, U.S. mainland, and foreign countries.
