    Jim Thompson Outlet for Silk in Bangkok 

    The Jim Thompson Outlet on Sukhumvit Soi 93 is open every day from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. They have a range of silk from heavy upholstery fabric, to lighter weight for clothing. The lighweight silk is called 1 ply. It is washable and great for sewing up quilts or clothing. Silks are on floors 1 and 3. Enjoy lunch at the cafe while you’re there. However they don’t have chiffon or anything light like that. The lightest I saw was a shimmery white silk in a couple of different weaves that would be good for blouses or dressy clothing.

      Dear Jill

      Back in 2016, with the help of your post, I went to china world, visited the store that you raved about, on level 2, which was kind of hard to find but i managed to find it and bought a lot of fabrics

      Now, im visiting bangkok again and planned to go to china world on next monday, but i forgot the name of the store. May I know if you remember the name of the store? Was it kimono house? Is the store still there?

      Besides belleboo, do you recommend any other shop for cute 100% cotton prints?

      I will also be going to Jim Thompson Outlet on Sukhumvit Soi 93 for thick silk as well.

      Regards

        Yes the name is Kimono House and it moved. It’s nearby in walking distance from China World, and it’s on google maps. It’s a separate shop near Starbucks. The address is: Wang Burapha Phirom, Phra Nakhon, Bangkok 10200. I don’t really have a new or favorite shop. Haven’t been shopping for a while. Will have to get back there again soon. Have a good trip and good luck shopping!

          Just an update. I found kimono house opp Starbucks. I found a lot of nice cotton prints at chesun on level 2.

          I also had a very hard time tryin to locate sampeng lane and due to time constraints & fatigue, I purchased a lot of fabrics from belleboo and left, without going to #150, #159 and #277. What a pity!

          I will go to those shops in my next trip

      Hi Jill!! I just stumbled upon your website and since I‘m going to Bangkok, this is very helpful. In Chiang Mai I found some aweseome quilt fabrics, and I think I‘ll have to buy more just before my flight back home. I wish I could upload a picture, so you could see which ones I mean. They are cotton and have these amazing borders and have lots of gold on them. The other ones I really liked were the indonesian batik fabrics. Do you have anything inmind, where I could get those?

        Those are sarong fabrics. They are sold at local markets. If you can get to Sampeng Lane in Chinatown, the walking lane shops go by number and there’s a shop number 96 “Vibul Kit” and another shop near that. There are a lot of shops selling sarongs in various markets, maybe you can show the concierge at your hotel desk. If you can bring one along when you shop, that would explain to people what you’re looking for. Good luck. We use those in quilting all the time! Also good for tablecloths, sewing two together along the longer sides. Some shops even sell this fabric on a bolt.

    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!

I was reading through one of your posts and found the name of this factory called Tokai that manufactures high quality cotton poplin.. Is it possible that I can get in touch with them through an agent but I’d like someone who can offer a very wide variety as I already know someone but they don’t have as many options in terms of prints.. My main focus is on polka dots, stripes and all kinds of floral prints big and small! Thanks I hope to hear from u soon enough! Love xoxo

          At Sampeng you’ll find Belleboo fabric at various shops such as #258 Sampeng, and a few others such as #261 SM Fabric (not sure if it’s still there). If you walk around you’ll see shops with polka dots and prints, that will be Belleboo! http://www.belleboofabric.com/ Good luck!

      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/

    #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

        It takes 4 days to get the sample, then more time to get the order. It’s more expensive than the printed. I don’t know the price.

      Hi Jill, I pan on a day trip for fabric hunting in Bangkok. Would it be ok to go on a saturday? I will only be in Bangkok for a couple of days! Probably will hire a driver for the day so we could visit to most of the places in one go.

        There is a market for cotton knits in Suksawat, Bangkok. I don’t know much about it, but it’s the place to go for tee shirt fabric.

      Hi Jill, we are moving to East Pattaya this Summer. I stumbled upon your site and it has given me hope to find sewing supplies and fabrics in Thailand 🙂 Are you only familiar with fabric shops in Bangkok? Is there a sewing community I could connect with?

        The Pattaya International Ladies Club used to have a quilting group but people come and go so they may not have that now. Anyway it’s a good group to join and connect with. http://www.pilc-pattaya.com/

      Hi, does anyone looking at this site happen to know the names of the two shops across the street from terminal 21 mall at asok BTS? There is a nice fabric shop on that corner, and a small but decently stocked notions shop around the corner.

      Hi, Jill,
      I’m a longarm quilter in St George, UT. One of my customers asked if I would continue to quilt for her if she mailed her quilts. Needless to say, that would be crazy expensive for her.
      I googled, thinking there might be quilters in Thailand – and here I am!
      Do you know of anyone with a quilting business I could refer my friend/customer to? Anywhere in theFar East would be closer then me! 🙂
      Thank you!
      PS: Great site! Wish I had a trip to Thailand coming up. Maybe I could deduct it as a business expense. 😉

        There aren’t any machine quilting businesses in Thailand. That’s why we learned to machine quilt our own quilts here, out of necessity. If you’re interested in getting some hand quilting done, you can contact me through these comments. It would involve mailing your quilt to Rayong, Thailand, to Khun Tiew and Our Home quilters. Thanks!

      Hi Jill, thanks for the updated information. I went looking on our last visit to Bangkok, and was amazed at what is available at what prices, and just didn’t have room in my suitcase for any more. I found some wonderful bargains. I will be back later this year in September, and will be checking out some of these wonderful places. Quilting fabrics in Australia are so expensive, and these are a great find.

      Thanks again Wendy
