    Ikea in Bangkok 

    Ikea has a fabric center on the ground floor. You purchase Ikea fabric, and they custom make curtains – plain, with pleats, grommets, or tab top. They can make cushion covers up to 50 X 50 cm, seat cushions up to 60 X 60 cm with 15 cm thickness, bed runners, removable dining chair covers, removeable armchair covers, and 2-seat removable sofa covers. They recommend having curtains made at twice the width of your window, for example 2 m wide curtain to cover 1 m of the width of your window. The fabric is 150 cm wide. IKEA Megabangna is open daily 10am – 10pm  Ikea sewing services

    They have some cotton and some polyester fabrics. All will look great for decorating!

    Hard to choose! I love them all.

    img_4356

    Ikea has beautiful ready made curtains. Each panel is 145 cm wide, which covers 1 m of window width. Ikea will sew panels together to equal the width of your windows. This is one 145 cm panel shown here, they come 2 in a package.

      I would love to find a quilter in Bangkok or Thailand who could help turn my son’s t-shirts into a memory quilt as he leaves school and moves to university in our home country. Do you know of anyone who could do this sort of commission?

      Hello, Jill
      I am a quilter living in Chiang Mai. I get a lot of emails from fellow quilters with questions that maybe you can help me with.

      The most frequent questions are:
      1. Is there currently a quilting group in Bangkok that meets regularly?
      2. Is there any machine quilting service for those who like to piece but don’t necessarily like to quilt?

      I also know that you have been a big supporter of Khun Tiew at Our Home. Is she still running it? I haven’t been able to find anything current on the internet.

      thanks for your help with this.

        A few quilters are starting up a quilt group in downtown Bangkok. You can email them at BangkokQuilters@gmail.com. There is no machine quilting service. Khun Tiew is still doing hand quilting in Rayong but only has one quilter staying with her whereas there used to be about 10 quilters living there in a dorm, so she’s booked solid for quilting. She is focussing on other businesses, travel and her grandchildren.

        As far as I know, there is no cotton batting in Thailand. We always brought our own from the US, or bought it from quilt shops in Singapore.

        Not really sure about bedsheets. Possibly Chuan Hua #150 Sampeng lane, the 3 for 100 shop. 3 meters for 100 baht. I only thought of it because they also sell bedsheets. The lady sitting at the desk in the back speaks English.

        Here is the official Janome/Elna website. They call it Sewing Lovers Club, and they sell free motion feet. Out of the 21 shown on the page, the 1st and the 8th are free motion. There is a phone # on their about page. You can order online if someone can help you with the Thai. Or print out the page and bring it to the Janome dept at Central or wherever, so they understand http://www.sewingloversclub.com/category/6/

    Labels, Tags, Iron On Transfer Sheets at Sampeng Lane

    #48 Sampeng Lane, Hong Garment

    bkk thaviwat

    #89 Sampeng Lane, Bangkok Thaviwat

    At these two shops on Sampeng Lane, you can order tags for your clothing manufacturing. At Hong Garment, you can order woven tags. At Bangkok Thaviwat, you can order printed tags on satin polyester ribbon. That’s where we got our quilt labels long ago! They were printed on satin polyester ribbon and the minimum was 1000 labels for those because they were big. Smaller labels such as those that go into clothing, can be ordered with about 6000 labels at a minimum and the cost is around 8000 baht total. You can email your logo design in an ai file.

    The items pictured below are found at Hong Garment #48 Sampeng Lane. Clothing labels are available in black and white. The price is 120 baht per roll and provides 480 labels. The letters are woven into the ribbon. For example there is “100% cotton, Made in Thailand, Machine Wash Separately, Cold Water, Tumble Dry Low, Do Not Bleach” on one label as shown below, along with sizes from S to XL. They also have “Dry Clean Only” labels.

    IMG_3095

    Clothing labels on a roll, 120 baht

    If you would like a smaller quantity, consider using iron-on transfer sheets to make labels. An inkjet printer is all you need! Hong Garment #48 Sampeng Lane or their branch at Mega Plaza, 900 Mahachai Rd, used to be Merry King, open every day Mega Plaza Facebook

But my only option is to try and find a place that sells reasonable quality white business shirts off-the-rack. Thanks for the tip on Central – not heard of it before.In fact as I’ve never been to BKK shopping before it is a welcome start. And I’m just after half a dozen. BR Steve

        Two suggestions from ladies in my quilt group: 1) From Cindy: I had great luck with Manhattan Tailor. When I was working and we’d vacation in Thailand, I have had several “working suits with skirts and dress pants” made and was very pleased with them. They were well made, I’d receive compliments on my clothes and I still have them. They were recommended to me by a fellow co-worker (attorney) who’d get clothes made for them. Manhattan Tailor is near the Ambassador Hotel. I can walk right to it, but basically if you are on Sukhumvit and turn to go to Ambassador Hotel, 1/2 to 2/3rds of the way (on your right) is a side street. Turn right and the street will turn right again (making an “L” back to Sukhumvit). Manhattan Tailor will be on your left. http://bangkoktailor.biz/

        2) Sonia thoroughly recommends Cotton House at Oriental Place, next to the Oriental Hotel. http://opthai.com/opplace/?page_id=1097#= and see the review https://www.tripadvisor.co.nz/Attraction_Review-g293916-d6988104-Reviews-Cotton_House-Bangkok.html

          I see a number of shops that sell fabric, but are there any that sell the 3,000 or 5,000 meters of polyester quilting thread used in longarm quilting machine? There used to be a brand called Premium Select, but I am unable to find it on the Internet. Thank you

        No it’s not the same. Stretch cord is for making necklaces. For shirring you need elastic thread, and I bought some at #48 Hong Garment.

    Kimono House at China World Mall 

    Here’s a good place to get linen. Kimono House has a huge variety of cotton fabrics too. It’s on the second floor of China World Mall, near the elevators in a corner.


    Tara and I went shopping for fabrics. She found some sarong fabric to make a skirt, from this cart. The owner, Sue, is there every day except Monday. You can get pretty handwoven sarong fabric and embroidered fabric by the meter. It’s on the corner of Burapha Road and Pahurat Road, near The Old Siam.

    The Old Siam

    The Old Siam has two upscale fabric shops, both named Rani. The owners are two brothers whose grandfather arrived in Thailand from India in 1903.

      Jill’s blog is a terrific resource for fabric shopping in Bangkok! Thanks, Jill, for all of your efforts – I spent nearly a whole day in China World Mall alone, must go back for more.

      I have three questions, two directly related to quilting, one not (not sure it’s appropriate here):

      Is there a store in Pahurat or elsewhere where I can buy freezer paper? I use it for making appliques, not freezing food.

      Is there any English or English/Thai quilting group that meets to share quilting related knowledge?

      Is there anyplace in Bangkok that sells clothing patterns (McCall’s, Simplicity, Burda, Vogue)? I get only blank looks when I ask.

      Thanks again for this terrific quilting resource – I just found it after living in Bangkok for seven years!!
