Nawapan Notions Shop
For people living in the Nichada and Pracha Niwet area, north of Bangkok… there is a notions shop on Prachaniwet 3 Road, off of Samakee Road near Benjama School. They have batting, muslin, and more for sewing.
From our roving reporter, Diana: Coming from ISB, to the motorway entrance on Namwongwan, drive down Samakee Road and turn right onto Pracha Niwet Road, on the right hand side just after the open ground which is used for a market/bus depot, opposite a large school there is a great haberdashery shop – industrial sewing machines out front – can’t miss it. They sell the white and off-white cotton thread we all use (20 Baht per spool), Venus big spool thread, huge range of zippers, lots of ribbons, black and white Velcro (20 Baht per meter), bias tape, snap closures (of all sizes), wooden needlework hoops (ranging from 30-60 Baht each), and all bits and bobs for sewing. Their polyester thread colour collection is amazing. They also have a few metallic’s. Next door (same shop though) is a pet supply shop.
