Quilting on the Beach

Quilting on the Beach

Join us for a quilting retreat in paradise featuring local and guest instructors and plenty of aloha!

Quilting on the Beach 2023 will be held February 4 – 10, with six days of classes, events, and quilting fun. Safety and sanitation measures will continue to be in place and there will be plenty of room to observe appropriate social distancing. Classes will be held at a convenient location in downtown Kailua Kona, not far from Quilt Passions.

Design Your Own Program

At Quilting on the Beach®, there is no expensive package price, not even a registration fee. Simply choose the classes and events that you want to participate in and you only pay for those classes or events.

Our class offerings feature a wide variety of techniques and projects suitable for everyone from beginners to advanced quilters. Class kits are highly prepped to help you make the most of class time – you’ll have many of the projects completely finished by the end of the day.

To view classes and register, go to the Events page. Please check back as additional classes are added.
