Hi Jill this is Sharlene Salzman Kris gave me your information can you give me more info for the Quilter’s that you mentioned to her. I live in Bangkok Thailand.
Hi sharlene i have recently startet free motion quilting on hand machine . Do baby quilts and i live in bangkok
Am looking for very thin lining fabric, and heard that the fabric Sikhs use for their turbans is ideal. Also heard it was incredibly cheap. Is it called Pagris? Or maybe rubia voile? Either way, if you or anyone else has a source I’d love to know where to go.
Thanks for sharing, Jill. I’m an avid quilter, but I live in Hanoi where there are limited supplies. I’m on holiday in Thailand in a few days and I will be looking for batting for 3 quilts. Do you know where I can find batting in the BKK area?
#78 Sampeng Lane, Sri Song Swad shop – They sell white polyester batting in either thick or thin. Sorry there is only polyester batting in BKK that I’m aware of. https://bkkquilt.com/sampeng/ – look at the pic of the business card towards the bottom of the page “#78 Sri Song Sawad – batting, flannel”
You can find batting at I love quilting in mega plaza pahurat they have good collection other than polyster and thay have shop at hong shop in shampeng and if you need for three quilts they give 1 meter free if you buy 5 meter .
Hi Jill. we are a retired swiss couple, living in the philippines. we come often to bkk for shopping. Sampeng line, chinaworld, india emporium we know. problem is, my son get married in july 2016 and I need a good woman tailor for a long evening dress and some pants and blouses maybe in chiffon. do you know a good address? we stay in january and june in bkk. many thanks for your reply.
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
Hi Jill, thank you and Cindy and Sonia, this is a big help for me. have a nice weekend!
I just get my two long evening dresses, made from Cotton House, OP Place. She make a very good work and the quality is super. Many thanks to you and your group.
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
Hi Jill, is stretch cord same as elastic thread? Need to make a dress with shirring. Not sure where to start looking. 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.
Hi – thanks for all the Sampeng Lane tips! I’m looking for a sewing box, and wasn’t able to find one that opens out on hinges like these, do you know if they are available anywhere in Bangkok? thanks – Chris http://threadsmagazine.assets.tauntonnet.com/assets/uploads/posts/25272/xprd372976_z_lg.jpg https://gentlewomanthief.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/sewing-box-inside.jpg
