      Hi Jill,
      Great blog. Thank for sharing.
      I need to buy single jersey printed. About 100 meters per colour or print.
      Where is the best place to go? Hoping to 1st of April. Would literally appreciate your advise! Thanks

        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.

          Thanks for your response Jill. Could you also advice me where I can get good shirting? I would need about 100 meters each colour and in a few colours.

          Thanks a million

      Hello Jill I live in Dubai and am visiting Bangkok soon. Would you advise I buy sewing machine trolley from there as it is very expensive here and not available in India. Thanks a ton for your other insights.

      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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thank you!
      PS: Great site! Wish I had a trip to Thailand coming up. Maybe I could deduct it as a business expense. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        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 didnโ€™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

    Upstairs at Pahurat: denim, velour, felt and more 

    Pahurat is the Indian fabric market near Sampeng Lane in Bangkok. You have to find the escalator and that’s how you know it’s the upstairs Pahurat market. The shops sell denim, corduroy, velour, canvas, cotton, and gauze. Once in a while we find novelty cottons or other great fabric for quilting. Adela recommends exploring the ground floor of Pahurat for fashionable dresses. They have some very nice evening dresses in shops on the ground floor of Pahurat.

      I read your posts regularly now – such a colourful, fascinating place you live. I would never have any spare cash if I had access to all that wonderful fabric.

    Chinatown Shopping Day 

    Chinatown has pink banners up saying “long live the King”. Click on the video to play.Thailand is OK for tourists once again after the floods in October/November. We went shopping along Sampeng Lane and walked to Pahurat. There is a good variety of quilt fabric, especially a lot of pretty Moda fabric. We shopped at China World mall and had lunch at the food court on the 3rd floor. It was a very nice day.
