If anyone in your party is into textiles, Kapaia Stitchery is worth a stop to gawp at the Hawaiian quilts in fantastic contemporary designs. For more of my travel tips, visit: examiner.com/travel-in-san-jose/michele-mccarthy

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!

Kapaia Stitchery was started 41 years ago by Julie Yukimura. After her passing, the store continued to be managed by her long time employee and dear friend, Jean. Jean purchased the business and has kept the Aloha spirit alive and thriving. The fabrics are beautiful, accessories are often one of a kind, there are beautiful gift items, and even some... More

Came across this shop by accident. Could not wait to go back. The batiks are truly amazing, a very large selection to choose from in every color. The employees were very helpful. If your luggage is already full, just send everything back in a flat rate USP shipping box.

A giant Mahalo nui loa to Faith who made a fantastic custom aloha shirt for my husband in three days, the front matches perfectly and the front pocket is almost invisible, great value also!
