    I am moving to Maui in mid-September and wanted to know if anyone knows of a quilters guild on that island. I know there are 3 fabric shops (I have visited each more than once) but I also want to take classes and meet other quilters there. Any ideas would be welcomed.

    I know, we feel very lucky. We are going to get a small condo to rent and enjoy the island life a while. By the way, your baby is beautiful!

    We plan to move to Kauai in a few years. I am hoping to find a quilting guild there, too. I did see a group who work out of the museum. You might see if they have a Hawaiian cultural museum in Mauai. And have fun, good luck with the move!

    The Maui Quilt Shop in Kihei is very friendly. You will have no trouble making friends and getting into a sewing group!

    I went to a great little shop on Maui...took a hand applique class there...and there is THE BEST fabric store there. I think it was called Fabric Mart in Kalului or whatever that cities name is. They are also online.

    I am green...can we all come visit you?

    Just have a wonderful time! Learn Hawaiian quilting, drink tropical drinks with lots of rum, and enjoy the beach.

    Went there twice on our recent trip. They have the most lovely selection of batics and island fabrics. I recall a flyer about quilt guild activities, just ask when you get there.

    Hi Everyone,
    Thanks for all your great suggestions (and offers to help pack, clean, etc., etc.)! I wish I had room for all to visit. The way we are getting to do this is to rent a very small condo. But if you are heading that way, be sure to let us know. It would be fun to meet and share quilt stories.
    Aloha!!

    They could use more quilt shops (not sure I am into B and B's though); so don't tempt me. I think I want to relax and enjoy the island ambiance for a while, though. Happy quilting!

    I have a friend that moved there a few years ago. She cannot say enough good about her quilt guild. Hope you find a good one!

    My daughter just went to the fabric mart. She said it was amazing. She was shopping for pillow covers.
