Jill C. quilter in Bangkok

I am an American who has lived in Thailand for many years. The wonderful things about Thailand are the people, shopping, fabric, bargains, food, and fun! I started this blog when the ladies in quilt group began gathering information about shops along Sampeng Lane. Soon by group effort we had a map and I decided to put it all online. Since I started this blog in 2007 I have been contacted by many quilters from around the world who need information about quilting in Thailand. It has been great to be the catalyst for so many people to connect with Thailand. Another important part of this blog is the charity quilt patterns. These were made up by Doris and we love them! Do one of these and you will learn to quilt. A lovely lady in quilt group is Khun Tiew who takes in young women who need a home after growing up and leaving the orphanage, and she teaches them to quilt. They can make a quilt to order, or finish a quilt for you. If you would like to help “Our Home”, where the young women live and quilt,  please donate. Thank you very much! Another key part of this is the people of Janome and Elna sewing machines who are getting quilting going in Thailand. They are very creative and have contests and quilt shows. This is the start of a wonderful new era of quilting in Thailand. Welcome to it!

Thank you Vicki, Teresa, Shirley and Barbara!

    Hello iv just stumbled on here while looking for Hill-Berg polka dot fabric cotton, and saw someone else looking for Hill berg too, I have tried to get in contact with them but no success. I wanted to get in contact with them as I make Fabric dolls and need to know about their CE certification if possible as I like the fabric very much, its lovely to work with. Your page seems to be very helpful to all that come here and I hope you don’t mind me popping in :) and would love to return if that’s ok .

    Dear Jill,

    First I wanted to say I love your site, your beautiful quilts and very useful guides.
    My request might sound a bit strange, but I hope you can help me.
    Have you ever seen the fabric, with a Hill-Berg Fabric logo printed on it’s side?
    It’s all 100% cotton, cotton/poplin.Couple of months I am trying to find out the manufacturer
    of this fabric, country,any info but nothing…
    I managed to find out this fabric is shipped to the UK from Thailand, and in Thailand Bangkok
    it’s widely available. Patchwork squares, cut and packed from this fabric in Thailand. It might be Japanese,but
    manufactured in Thailand. Any information about this mysterious Hill-Berg Fabric is much appreciated.
    Maybe you’ve seen this cotton on Sampeng Lane? Big variety of vintage roses,bright retro prints,elephants,love and peace etc.
    Any information about this mysterious Hill-Berg Fabric is much appreciated.
    Thank you so much. Have a lovely day and hope to hear from you.

    Kind Regards

    Tanya C.

      Hi Lydia, Your enquiry may already have been answered but these are the places I go to.
      Belleboo Shop is at 258 Sampeng Lane, check out Jill’s Sampeng Lane map.
      Could try Kimono Fabric shop, China World Mall in Pahurat for Amy Butler or Kaffe Fassett fabrics, there are also lots of fabric shops in this mall that have stocked polka dot fabrics (all cotton) in the past.

    Hi Jill,

    I just found your web site while searching on-line for Diamond/Crystal/Rhinestone/Multi-Diamond Zipper for Fashion Garment. I need a 50 or 100 of those zippers all with open ends, all kind of colors, different sizes with single and double row rhinestones.

    I was wondering if you know of any places in Bangkok that sells this zippers?

    Thanks very much for your kind reply and help
