The Sewing Hui


About the organizer

The Sewing Hui is a dedicated group of volunteer sewists and craftspersons who give their time generously to the Maui community. It is made up of residents and visitor-volunteers. The Sewing Hui’s mission is to help our community by donating hand-sewn items to organizations and groups in need across Maui. It is our hope that through our organization we can exemplify the power of community, generosity, and creating together–spreading aloha one stitch at a time.

The Sewing Hui evolved out of the Maui Face Mask Project. That project, conducted in the Spring of 2020, was started to address the critical shortage of N-95 face masks on Maui. The project created 10,411 high quality filter face masks for Maui’s healthcare providers.  These face masks were modeled after a flat-fold N-95 face mask provided by Kaiser Permanente Maui Lani Clinic. After the project was completed on May 15, 2020, the volunteers wanted to continue sewing for the community. Thus, The Sewing Hui was born. Founded and directed by dressmaker Jennifer Oberg, The Sewing Hui is a community volunteer organization.
