Isle Knit has a pretty good selection, especially considering the size.  You can get fancy-schmancy yarns (Anny Blatt) or relatively inexpensive basic yarns (Ella Mae, Plymouth Encore) - just tell Sue what you are looking for.  Lots of patterns and notions, too.

i highly recommend UI MAU A MAU!  i wanted to learn to make crochet lei, so i wandered in and they took me right under their wings and showed me everything - i mentioned that i was going to teach myself how to crochet so i could make pikake buds, and they taught me how to crochet right there in the store!  there's a big table in the store and when i went, there were a bunch of women making all kinds of lei, chatting, sharing ideas - it was awesome!

Additional Stores:

Fabric Shops

June Fabrics
938 Austin Lane 
Honolulu, HI 96817
(808) 845-5400

Kaimuki Dry Goods
1144 10th Avenue # 100 
Honolulu, HI 96816
(808) 734-2141

The Calico Cat
1223 Koko Head Ave Ste 2
Honolulu, HI 96816-3241


If you're ever in need of stretchy lace, Kaimuki Dry Goods is your place! They also have a gorgeous selection of Asian and novelty fabrics. They're small, but I like their selection.
I also like to go to June Fabrics because it has a wide variety of fabrics (but I haven't been to Fabric Mart yet, so I can't compare). I have yet to visit The Calico Cat, but they've gotten some rave reviews, so I am eager to check them out.

I hope this helps!
