    Wholesale Fabric at New Mall, Shibuya at Pratunam, Bangkok 

    Now there is an elevated walkway from Gaysorn Plaza to the Pratunam shopping area. The skywalk is called R Walk (Ratchaprasong Walk). I took the BTS Sukhumvit Line to Chidlom and walked to Pratunam on the R Walk, to check out a new mall called Shibuya. I saw it mentioned in the Facebook group Bangkok Shopping Finds. The mall has three floors of wholesale fabric, mostly polyester and lace. I bought 2 meters of polyester at 100 baht per meter. If you buy more you will get the wholesale price.

    A food court, Food Center on the 6th floor, is open daily from 9:00 – 6:00. Closed Sunday.

    Sirinda Shop does made-to-order labels, patches, stickers, printed and laser buttons and more. Look for sirindafanpage on Facebook. I bought a few decorative embroidered patches at 20 baht each.
    Hours for Sirinda Shop:
    Monday through Saturday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
    Closed Sunday

    It’s also called Shibuya 19 Shopping Mall. There are lots of fashion clothing shops in the mall too. See pics at this link.  Bangkok.com


    At Sirinda Shop they can make to order: labels (woven, printed, screened, leather), size labels, care labels, buttons, hang tags, ribbon, thread, plastic and paper bags, embroidery, elastic, cotton tape and garment accessories. They have a branch at Bobae too, open Monday – Saturday 8:00 am – 6:00 pm closed Sunday.

      Hi Jill. I’ve just moved to Bangkok and was hoping to join a quilting guild or group. Are you part of one? Or do you know of any around? Thanks in advance

        Join the facebook group Bangkok Quilters, maybe you can start a group. So far we just have the online group.

    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.

        Hey Jill.. I read through all your blogs it’s a delight for ppl like us who are on the look out for great and right buys in Thailand specifically Bangkok.. 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


        • Jill C. 6:01 pm on January 21, 2018 Permalink

          Factories won’t supply a variety. They do large runs of one pattern. So your best bet is Fabric House https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fabric-HouseCentral-World/350995504972980 they give a 20% discount for large orders. See the facebook page for photos by other people – Fabic House doesn’t actually have a website.
          Fabric Center: 277 Sampeng Lane, tel. 02-222-2460.
          Fabric House: ground floor Central City, Bang Na, Bangkok tel. 02-361-0570
          Fabric House: ground floor Seacon Square, Srinakarin Rd., Bangkok tel. 02-721-8709
          Fabric Fashion: 1st floor The Mall 3, Ramkamhaeng, Bangkok tel. 02-310-1020
          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.


      • Jill C. 10:58 am on March 5, 2017 Permalink | Reply

        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.


      • Jill C. 5:33 pm on January 6, 2017 Permalink | Reply

        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/

      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!

          Can you recommend me some factories that have large capacity and can offer us a competitive price?

      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
