About

Marianne of Maui ~~ Fabric in My Blood

A very strange headline, but it is true! I thought my life was going to be all about ceramics. I spent 30 years with mud under my finger nails, never believing there would be anything else to command my life work. However, a fabric tradition in my Italian family has caught up with me. After centuries of textiles in one way or another, I am keeping up a very old family tradition. My mother appreciated fabric and sewed a wardrobe she could never possibly wear unless she had another lifetime. My grandmothers who came from Italy in early 1900 worked in the factories sewing piecework. But before them came the fabric makers..... they were named Belafina, for the fine fabric they made. I do not make my fabric..... but I sell the best fabric money can buy in beautiful tropical prints that go round the world. AND, I have not given up the more recent tradition of sewing. But like my paternal grandmother, I pride using my hands. Very few things do I make by machine. In fact my haughty mother often said she felt sorry for the fabric when I got my hands on it. Wow, how things have changed! Handmade quilts, without any machine stitching at all, now have become my signature work, and I have started a new line, and every little bit and bob of scrap can rejoice, --- Yes YES! YES!!!! Fabric IS in my blood. It's a genetic thing you inherit and cannot be subdued. If it's there ~~~ it will come out one way or another!

Hi, I'm Marianne of Maui, and have been creating and selling my quilts for over ten years, here in Maui, featuring the most unique island fabrics. I specialize in crazy quilt items, including my stuffed animals, placemats, and all kinds of unique items that I just wake up one morning and say, 'that's my next project!'.
I also have been known for my decorative ceramics, which specialize in bringing Hawaiian flowers to plain ol'd ceramic pieces and turn them into eternal flower tributes to our lovely Islands. And... often times I am just selling my Nana's crochet and vintage items which may even be close to a century old. So you can never tell what you will find!

Accepted payment methods

Payment
WHEN YOU ARE INVOICED I EXPECT PROMPT PAYMENT, I LOVE COMING INTO MY COMPUTER AND FINDING THE PAYMENT WITH THE TRANSACTION NOTICE, as these are 'cart' transactions,. IF YOU CANNOT PAY THE SAME TIME, PLEASE TO LET ME KNOW. Cancellations???? Please think before you do the transaction. I am not very good at cancellations. As far as I am concerned, doing a transaction, and PAYING for it, and THEN, LATER saying it was a mistake.... duh???? is cruel and inhuman treatment of small merchants, and craft artists. .
Shipping
Shipping will go out promptly, usually within 2-3 days. We want YOU to pay as little as necessary for shipping, because everyone thinks shipping stuff to or from Hawaii is MORE expensive than on the continental US. That's not true. So to offset this erroneous idea, we are happy to not only combine, but use FLAT RATE SHIPPING! This reduces multiple bids to nickles and dimes on shipping cost. Sometimes, because of combined shipping items may have FREE SHIPPING! REMEMER INTERNATIONAL BUYERS MUST CONTACT ME FOR ACCURATE SHIPPING COST AHEAD OF TIME!
Refunds and Exchanges
Sorry, I may be as good as gold, but I work darn hard for every dime, and I just cannot do refunds or exchanges. So every sale is final. When in doubt, call me up 808-965-0939 or email me at marianneofmaui [!at] aol.com. I will be delighted to answer your questions BEFORE you buy to clear up any misconceptions.
Additional policies and FAQs
i AM A 24/7 OPERATION. ALWAYS AVAILBLE TO ANSWER YOUR CONVERSATION AND REQUESTS.... IF I HAVE NOT ANSWERED YOUR CONVO, IT'S BECAUSE OF THE TIME ZONE DIFFERENCE WHICH IS ABOUT 12 HOUR EACH DIRECTION INTERNATIONALLY, AND ALSO I MIGHT BE SHOPPING. (that does happen occasionaly)
