Looking for a fabric store on Kauai? Kapaia Stitchery is my favorite. It is the longest operating (48 years), locally owned, quilting fabric store in Kauai County. Just outside the main part of Lihue town, not far from the airport, and close to the turnoff for Wailua Falls, this tiny building is packed with everything having to do with fabric. Inside is a large variety of fabric choices, including a multitude of Hawaiian prints. Quilters may purchase by the yard, or in small bundled groups of integrated colors and designs (fat quarter sets). Additional supplies, such as notions, patterns, and kits, are also available for purchase. Specializing in Hawaiiana, this is the place to find that perfect fabric in which to create something, once home, that will remind you of your Kauai vacation.
For those that prefer other forms of needlework, Kapaia Stitchery also offers Hawaiiana counted cross-stitch patterns and kits, needlepoint designs, as well as Christmas stocking and pillowcase kits.
But, for those that would rather buy the finished product, not to worry. This unique fabric store on Kauai has crafters working throughtout the islands to produce many beautiful quilted products that you might normally see at a Craft Fair. Besides quilts, there are wall hangings, aprons, Aloha shirts, neck ties, bibs, pot holders, table runners, and napkins.
Looking for a gift to bring home to someone special? How about a quilted bag, purse, wallet, cosmetic bag, checkbook cover, luggage tag, casserole carrier, or travel utensil set. My two personal favorites are the quilted coasters; excellent on glass tables, and the quilted seatbelt covers.
When visiting the store, don’t miss the locally made Christmas ornaments that will add a little Hawaiiana to your tree. They make a pretty cool gift ornament as well.
When a dear friend offered to make me a pineapple quilt, we headed to this wonderland of fabrics. What fun to pick through all the fabric pieces for a mix/match of warm colors. The end result is a treasure of mine. But, every now and then, I have to stop by and wander through this delightful store. If something can be made out of fabric, it is likely you will find it for sale at the Kapaia Stitchery store. They ship too!
