Vicky Fleming

On Vicky’s first trip to Hawaii in 1980, she fell in love with the moist, fragrant islands. She had enjoyed needlework all her life, so, after she returned to Colorado, taking up Hawaiian quilting was a natural. It gave Vicky a way to stay connected to the tropics. She joined the Ha’ole Connection quilt group to quilt and share stories and information on Hawaiian topics once a month. In 1993, Vicky moved to Florida. Because there are so many parallels between life in Hawaii and Florida, Vicky feels she is more aware than ever of how the kama’aina (locals) of Hawaii live, and how the modern way of life encroaches upon the natural world. Vicky still enjoys Hawaiian quilting as well as pursuing art quilt ideas. She is a member of Peace River Quilt Guild. Vicky and her husband own a 35-foot sailboat, which takes up whatever time isn’t spent quilting.
