    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.

    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’m sorry but Khun Tiew is no longer able to accept quilting jobs. She is winding the business down. I don’t know of any other business like hers in Thailand. Sorry about that.

      Dear Jill
      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?
      Thanks for your help,

      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.

      Dear Jill, thank you for your wonderful site! I have three questions: 1. Where can I find cotton batting in BKK? 2. Is there any place I can buy wholesale bedding sheet fabric (wide)? 3. Where can I find Janome sewing machine supplies? I am trying to buy a free motion quilting foot, asked in several of the big malls/ store, but none has any and they can’t tell me where.

        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/

        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
