Nalani Ohana Association Instructors....No Ka Oi - "The Best"

These ladies have been studying with me for years and have the knowledge not only
of our style and techniques but they also have the knowledge of the Hawaiian culture.

All of our No ka oi Instructors are now members of NOA "Nalani Ohana Association"

This page is dedicated to my official Instructors in Japan.

These ladies are all "No Ka Oi" (The best) in the art of

Hawaiian quilting and teaching.

When you learn from the best you become the best yourself. 

Why are these ladies "No ka oi"?

Because they are the only official instructors in Japan

that is trained and certified by our ohana here in Hawaii to teach and use our designs. 

 They live and teach with ALOHA and have the mana "Spirit" of Aunty Debbie and

myself within them. They have our full support and guidance 100%. There are many

Hawaiian quilt instructors in Japan but, our Instructors are No ka oi "THE BEST"....

Each instructor has a current contract and license with me directly to be one of our

No ka oi Instructors. It is an honor and priviledge to have them in our OHANA.

Our No ka oi instructors has the right to teach using our designs and templates.
