Dear Fellow Quilters, Sewers, Crafters, Artists, & Everyone who donated.
Thank you so much for your unbelievably generous and beautiful quilt donations to the Maui Quilt Shop's Aloha Quilt Donation Drive for those affected by the Lahaina and Upcountry Fires. I am overwhelmed by your kindness and caring. We have received over 5000 quilts and have distributed over 4500.  The fire recipients are very appreciative and so touched by your quilts.  They will always hold this gesture of caring dear to their hearts.  Distribution has slowed but be assured that I will continue to give quilts away to those in need. Thank you to my staff, Kay and Barbara; volunteers Joyce, Sharon, Marsha, Terry, and Linda. This donation drive would not have been possible without their continued support and endless hours of work. Again, my very warmest Aloha and Mahalo. Marilyn


October 31st was the last "official" day of our Aloha Quilts Donation Drive. We have received over 5,000 quilts, blankets, pillow cases & other items donated by quilters & guilds from across the country & Canada. Of those, about 4,000 have been distributed to survivors of the Maui Wild Fires in Lahaina & Kula. And survivors continue to vist us to pick up these treasures given to them by generous people in support of them in their time of need. All of us appreciate your generosity & thank you for keeping Maui in mind. We will continue to distribute items received after the last day of our drive. Please continue to remember our survivors & donate to other recognized groups such as the Maui Food Bank, Maui Strong Fund, or Maui United Way.

for your tremendous support for our Aloha Quilts Donation Drive which we brought to an end on October 31st. Your response has been overwhelming!! I know how much time, effort, expense & especially the TLC that goes into making quilts. These handmade quilts are special and were made with loving hands. Your donated quilts have been; and continue to be; distributed to survivors of this horrible fire. They have also been received by first responders, firefighters, and their families. Many of them lost homes and loved ones, as well. 
We have used a grass roots network to get the word out that your quilts are available. We will continue to distribute any quilts received after the last date of our drive and make sure they find an appropriate, caring home.
Thank you for caring about Maui!
With Love and Aloha,


What sizes are needed?
At this time, we are accepting all new finished quilts, preferably, 50"x 60" or larger.  
Suggestion: Lahainaluna High School colors: Red and White, touch of Black

What type of fabric should I use?
Cotton would be best because of our warm, tropical climate.

What type of batting should I use?
Due to our tropical climate, a lightweight batting and/or cotton batting will be okay. Or, kihei pili quilts will be okay too. (quilts with no batting, minimal quilting or tied)

Where do we send them to?

Maui Quilt Shop
18 Central Ave.
Wailuku, Maui
