I hardly even know what to say. As a die hard seamstress I had a difficult time controlling myself in this shop. Roll upon roll upon roll of tropical and Asian prints that are unavailable on the mainland or super pricey back home are stacked all over and the prices are unbelievably reasonable. The selection of patterns, books, and kits... More

This place is a quilters dream! The Hawaiian fabric is amazing and only $6.99 per yard! I bought more than I had planned on but not as much as I wanted. The Batik selection knocked my socks off as did the Hawaiian fabric. Just gorgeous. Lots of patterns and small quilted items like luggage tags, book covers and seat belt... More

Who goes to a fabric store on vacation ? Well to my surprise I LOVED tagging along with my wife ! The store has hundreds of rolls of Hawaiian print fabric. It is arranged by color so as you enter there is an explosion of optical sensory overload ! Besides fabric you can also purchase table runners ,quilts, and custom... More

This little shop is a gem. I visit it everytime I go and sometimes take part in the community quilting class... Great selection of Hawaiiana... including some unusual needlepoint canvases (one of a kind, Hawaii themed)... I could spend hours and lots of $$$, thank goodness my husband saves me from myself!

This was my second visit ...I just love the personal touch they give you. We shared ideas about different items to make and sell at craft fairs. Now that I can have fabric shipped to the mainland, I will take that opportunity to buy throughout the year. I had visited 3 fabric shops 3 years ago. This is by far... More

I always make it one of my stops on my Kauai trip. They have a wonderful selection of fabrics and probably the best batik section of any fabric store I have been in. I was there with 3 friends and we had good service but I was disappointed after having spent a lot of time and money, that they would... More

This shop has been here for decades and has an abundance of items for quilters and non-quilters alike. Don't quilt? Not a problem; this store has ready made items like gift items, amazingly clever expandable bags, luggage tags, checkbook covers, clothing, baby items, instruction books and starter kits, ect. I usually purchase yards of fabric to have items made later... More

We have been to Kauai two times. The first time we came with the inter-island cruise. My second shopping trip was during a family vacation. My girlfriend who spends every summer in Kauai and who sews beautifully, told me about this shop. I am a quilter and I could not get enough of this shop. Very friendly staff, high quality... More

Kapaia Stitchery is a wonderful fabric store! They have a fantastic selection of batiks, Hawaiian type prints, Hawaiian quilt patterns, and gift items. The store personnel were very helpful and friendly. If you like to sew or quilt, this is a must-do for you!
