      There are no plans for a Quilt Festival in 2016, as far as we know. It looks like there isn’t going to be one.

    Pretty Quilt Shop 

    “Pretty Quilt” is the first quilt shop in the expat community of Nichada Thani, a suburb north of Bangkok. Nicole Park, one of our local quilters, owns this creative and fun shop. There are fabrics from Korea, Japan and Indonesia, kits, fat quarters, thread and cotton batting (240 baht per yard, 100 cm wide). The store is located on the 2nd floor of Oasis shopping center, next to the entrance for the Nichada Thani neighborhood on Samakee Road in Nonthaburi. It’s about a 30 minute drive from downtown.
    Open Monday through Friday from 09:00 to 18:00
    Saturday 9:00 – 16:00
    closed Sundays and the first Saturday of the month
    There are two quilting teachers and you can take classes in hand quilting. For 2500 baht, you get lessons once a week and you provide the fabric and accessories. You will get homework and once a week you can go in and learn to hand quilt.
    They have Kaffe Fassett fabric (600 baht per yard, a small selection), homespun fabric, and quilting and bag accessories.

    Rosie Chan teaches in Bangkok 

    Hobby Club, 4th Floor Siam Paragon, sometimes has quilt classes.
    Rosie Chan taught a quilting class here in Bangkok on Monday October 27, 2008 at Siam Paragon’s Passage Zone. If you are interested in sewing and crafts, the Passage Zone is located on the 4th floor of Paragon. You can go there to buy supplies and learn about knitting, sewing and other crafts. The class here was sponsored by Bernina. There were nine students and we each had a sewing machine, either our own or one supplied by Bernina. Rosie taught us to make four quilt blocks. She is a great teacher. I highly recommend her classes. The Bernina shop/quilt shop where Rosie works is located in Singapore:

    Motivac Marketing Services Pty. Ltd.
    Grandlink Square
    511, Guillemard Road No. 03-07
    399849 Singapore Telephone 0065 6 743 81 77

    First we learned to piece curves in a new way. We used folded fabric pieces which we sewed into the seam line of a pieced unit or block. Then we turned the bias edge of the folded square back and stitched it down. A curve appears! There is a book with patterns like this called Peeled-back Patchwork Curves Without Piecing

    And then on to a One Square Cathedral Window block. Cut a square of fabric 8 inches by 8 inches. This will fold down to a smaller square measuring 4 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches, which includes the seam allowances of 1/2 inch (not the usual quilters seam allowance of 1/4 inch). The finished size of the block is 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches.

    The table runner pattern comes from Free Foldy Stuff.
