A Quilter in Paradise

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!
