Hi I'm Donna with Creekside Quilting!
As a frequent visitor to Maui, I have fallen in love with the island. The wildfires that destroyed much of the west side of the island last week left many, many families homeless and with no income as their businesses were also destroyed. 

I spoke with the manager of the Maui Quilt Shop in Kehei. She was thankful that none of her employees were severely impacted by the fires. I offered any assistance we could provide from here in Iowa. She is organizing a quilt drive and is accepting donation quilts in any size. She was very grateful to know that people in the heartland cared about the people of Maui!

If you have a donation quilt made, or can get one done by August 31, I will take care of shipping them to Maui. Please bring them into the shop Mon-Sat between 10:00 and 4:00 and let the staff know what they are for. The Maui Quilt Shop is not a licensed charity but are very reputable.

Mahalo (thank you) in advance!
