If you visit Kauai, be sure to check out the two quilt stores, both have excellent fabrics and very friendly staff!
|close to the town of Lihue, is Peaches and the|
|and ... of course, I needed to buy some of those beautiful batiks!|
A little further up the east side of the island is Vicky's -
1326 Kuhio Hwy, Papaa, Hawaii 96746 Phone 808 822 1746
|Vicky's daughter, Maile, is taking over the shop, with mom getting some time to 'do her own thing' ... at least, when she is not working in the store! And, somehow I needed to buy some more of those beautiful Hawaiian fabrics!|
Another interesting visit is the Kaua'i Museum where a Hawaiian Quilting Group meets on Friday mornings under the watchful eye of 'auntie', Florence Muraoka.
I visited on my last trip and wrote an article for the CQA/ACC Canadian Quilter Magazine - winter 2011. I brought copies for the two stores and the group.
The museum is worth an afternoon's perusal with lots of exhibits of the early culture and the post contact of Europeans.
