Notes from the Editor

Spring has sprung, the days are getting longer, and our world is looking bright! We’re finally able to get out more, as so many of us are getting vaccinated, and we SOKO artists are eager to show off all the beautiful things we have been working on while in “lockdown.” To that end, we’re having a “pop-up” sale at SKEA on Saturday, May 8 (more about that below). Mothers’ Day is Sunday the 9th, so if you’re looking for something for your Mom, or if you are a Mom, or if you know a Mom, come visit us for some delights to help celebrate the day. Aloha nui!
