Happy New Year!

January 16, 2011

Yes, it’s been a while that I have blogged, but that’s because I’ve been busy with classes and events. 🙂 ‘Ohana Arts Studio, Polynesian Dance Studio, and Kinderhula started as a homebased business in 2007 and moved into the Mariner Building in 2009. It has been a dream come true for me.

Wishing everyone a happy new year. It already looks like it’s going to be an awesome year. 😉


We’re growing!

February 26, 2010

Our studio is growing in leaps and bounds. Thanks to everyone who have found me online and via Craigslist!

I am working on the March and April 2010 schedule. Lots more sewing classes, hula and Tahitian classes, Hawaiian quilting workshops, and more!

Our studio has added some color 🙂 :

Hope to meet you soon!

Don’t forget the Mid Atlantic Quilt Show is being held this Saturday, February 27th at the Hampton Roads Convention Center. I know that two of my Hawaiian quilters, Cynthia and Dacia, are going. Y’all have fun!



Come see us in Williamsburg!
