      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,
      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
