Bon Marche Market – two quilt shops
Bon Marche is a very nice market with a food court, restaurants, and lots of shops with interesting products like clothing, jewelry, purses, and gourmet food. There are two quilt shops here worth visiting for accessories. One is Quilts Corner run by “A”. The shop has fabric from Japan and the U.S., lots of accessories and batting, and they teach hand quilting, machine quilting and patchwork, with beginner, intermediate and advanced classes. With each class you get a kit with all the materials needed.
Narada Crafts also has a classroom and a shop with lots of accessories. Both places have the new FriXion erasable gel Pilot pens in green and black. FriXion erasable gel pens are new and allow you to precisely mark fabric without smudging or fading. To erase the thermo sensitive ink, iron or toss into a dryer. One pen is 85 baht. I also got some curved needles for tying quilts with embroidery thread.
Bon Marche market is open from 10:00 am – 8:00 pm every day, while the quilt shops are closed on Mondays.
