    My DH just booked us a trip to Maui next month so this time I want to be prepared and have a list of any recommended quilt shops on Maui. If you have any suggestions or comments on places to go to see quilts, fabrics or places to take lessons on traditional Hawaiian quilting I would really appreciate your input. Thanks and counting the days. :P

    When we went last summer my DH took me to 3 of them, there was two in lahania walking distance from the hotel we stayed in, which was the best western. and one right up the road where we went to the beach. Last month there was another post about Maui and there were more suggestions

    Thanks for the advise. Our flight is a direct flight to Maui so I won't be on any other island other than Maui.

    Maui Quilt shop, I believe it is in Kihei. I was there back in June. Nice cafe in the same shopping place with local food items.

    There's a shop right next the Lahania Hotel, that teaches Hawaiian quilting. They also sell yarn and stitchery kits. Nice small classes, too. Be sure to go snorkeling!!! The waters are sooooo clear. And go under the Banyan tree - it's HUGE. On Sundays, they usually have an arts festival, with a lot of local artists.

    My daughter went to Maui twice and said the island of Kauai is the best place for quilt shops. A one day trip by island hopper plane will take you there and back. She also suggested you check online for the island of Maui and you can get a list.

    Check Walmart too! We went to Honolulu on our honeymoon 5 yrs ago and the highlight of my trip was buying beautiful hawaiian fabric at Walmart - hard to believe huh? (It was all such a blur after 3 major events of moving, relocating, getting married - all while working full time). That was before I started quilting, but I made some shirts.

    The hotel we stayed at in Maui was the Pioneer Inn right next door to the Banyan Tree Beautiful especially at night with the lights on. The craft festival was fun. Lots of beautiful stuff to buy. Never thought to look in Wal Mart for the material. It is where I bought most of my souveniers. Bought a cheap styrofoam cooler to keep ice and our drinks in. Bought cheese and snack sausages wine and took to a park and sat. Didn't drink the wine til we got back to our hotel. Restaurant had great food. try the poi pies at McDonalds we liked them, thats where we ate most of the time 1.00 menu had more money for sightseeing If you get a chance do the Hana Highway

    This is like my tenth time to Maui so as far as all the tourist hot spots been there done that. But I hadn't found any quilt shops so I thought I would plan ahead this time. There use to be a shop in one of the Lahiana Malls upstairs but it isn't there anymore when I checked last year. I have made arrangements for a class at the Maui Quilt Shop in Kihei and emailed the one in Lahiana but just thought I would ask in case there was a little one that I hadn't found online.

    we were there in June and it was still there. Also one right down the street on the same side as the banyan tree I don't remember if it was walking distance or if we drove just because we were headed out that way to do more sightseeing
