Hawaiian Quilting

Description of Class:

You don’t need to fly to Hawaii to learn this skill.  Come join us and we will teach you to cut your own snowflake style applique and begin to sew it.  As you listen to the music of the islands, we will also share the history of Hawaiian quilting as well as the stories of their quilts and quilters.  Our goal is to help each of you stitch your own mana (the quilter’s soul) into your pillow/wall hanging.
