A dedicated team of volunteers sewing for the Maui community.
In response to the fires across Maui in August 2023, The Sewing Hui coordinated and organized a mass effort to gather supplies and items for individuals and families impacted by the fires. We created, collected, and distributed pillowcases for Maui families impacted by the fires. Utilizing our more than 60 partners from our pandemic and post-pandemic projects, we coordinated with these partners to support efficient and immediate distribution. Mahalo to the tremendous support of individuals across the state and country who created and donated pillowcases to our pillowcase drive. We exceeded our goal of 2,000 pillowcases! Mahalo to everyone who supported this project! Recipients and supporters are noted below. We are no longer collecting pillowcases. We are currently distributing pillowcases where they are needed.
We are collecting sewing supplies for sewists who lost all of their supplies in the fires. If anyone has any sewing supplies they can spare please get in touch. If you know of someone who lost their sewing supplies, please let us know. Below is a form individuals impacted by the fires can fill out who are requesting sewing supplies. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Sewing Supply Drive" for all inquiries, donations, or requests.
Here's a link to our Amazon List for supplies for these sewists here.
