I recently had the very good fortune to travel to the Hawaiian island of Maui. Knowing that Hawaii has a rich quilting tradition, I checked to see if there were any quilt shops on the island. With a quick online search I found the Maui Quilt Shop and also found that they offer introductory classes on Traditional Hawaiian Needle-turn Applique. The shop was in Kihei, very close to where I was staying. I signed up immediately!
