    Handicrafts Fair and Workshops
    at Tang Hua Seng department store
    (5th floor) in Thonburi

    Duration approx from: 10.30-16.30 (It’s a one-day workshop, register for either day).
    Project: Tilted Log Cabin
    Description: Log cabin is very beautiful and has many possibilities for design combinations. You can also incorporate an embroidery design for the center piece.

    The tilted log cabin design originated from the basic log cabin. The design depends on light and dark color fabric so even small scraps can be used. Patchwork foot #37 and #57 are best to use for accurate piece work. The Bernina knee lifter is also very useful and an important accessory to have. Good speed control of Bernina also make sewing very comfortable.

    Cost: Bt. 3,350 (Bernina customers, bring your own machine)

    Bt. 3,650 (Non-Bernina customers)

    Contact Blue Sport Co., Ltd. to register.

    Shopping for fabric and supplies in Bangkok 

    Sampeng Lane in Chinatown is the best place to buy 100% cotton fabric at good prices. If you buy 10 meters or more, you get the wholesale price. It can be 1 meter of 10 different fabrics. Minimum cut, 1 meter. No bargaining, because it’s not a tourist place, it’s a wholesale place. Prices range from 3 meters for 100 baht ($1 per yard) up to 250 baht per meter (about $8 per yard). You’ll find Fabric Center in addition to many other shops, see Sampeng Lane Map. Opening hours are from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.

    The following stores in Bangkok sell 100% cotton fabric. These are all branches of one company, and if you buy more than 2500 baht you get a 10% discount.

    Fabric from Sampeng Lane

    fabric from Fabric Center, Sampeng Lane

    Fabric House: ground floor Central City, Bang Na, Bangkok tel. 02-361-0570

    Fabric House: Central World 2nd floor near Isetan, tel. (662) 255-6152

    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

    Fabric Center: 277 Sampeng Lane, tel. 02-222-2460

    Tang hua seng is a department store with two branches: one across the river in Thonburi and one on Khao San Road. They sell fabric, fat quarters, batting (white or black), thread, rotary cutters and blades, and craft supplies. I noticed ‘sa’ paper, burlap, terrycloth, and velcro in pink, red, green, black and white up to 4″ wide. Tang Hua Seng is on Nancy Chandler’s Map of Bangkok

    Rotary cutters, blades and cutting mats are available at JCC stationery store on Narathiwat Road in the Silom area (business district).
    And some small shops:

    PINN SHOP mostly crafts and some quilting accessories, 500 shops nationwide including PINN Counter in The Emporium’s Stationery Section and one in Siam Paragon’s Handicraft Section. They have fusible web.

    Pretty Quilt Shop in the Oasis shopping center, next to the entrance for the Nichada Thani neighborhood on Samakee Road in Nonthaburi

      I am an avid quilter and owned my own Quilt and Fabric business in the US. I am wondering if there are any longarm quilters for hire here in Bangkok.

          Hi Jill C.
          Hoping you can help me. I’m wanting to buy digital print chiffon or silk/chiffon. I’m heading to Thailand in a couple of weeks and hoping to purchase quantities for our kaftan business.
          Hope you can help.


        • Jill C. 10:45 am on March 28, 2017 Permalink

          There’s lots of chiffon at China World mall in Pahurat. I only saw polyester chiffon. There are hundreds of shops though. There are silk shops at The Old Siam mall nearby, but I only saw heavy silks there.

      Where can I buy felt? I wanted to make Chirstmas stockings for my children but didn’t know where to get them but didn’t want to go all the way to CHina town just for that. I live in Minburi so if anyone knows a place close to MInburi, that would be good. Id prefer not to go down town if possible. If anyone knows of a shop at Bangna that would also be fine because I am planning to go there.

      hi Jill, id like to ask if theres a shop in bangkok that sells sewing materials, like cutting mat/rotary mat? thank!


      • Jill C. 10:00 am on April 4, 2016 Permalink | Reply

        For the big mat 24″ x 36″ they have those at JCC Stationery, it’s in walking distance of the Chong Nonsi BTS. From the BTS take exit 4 walk down Narathiwat Rd and it is on your right before the end of the road – the road ends in a T with Surawong. They have rotary cutters and wholesale boxes of blades. Other than that there is Pinn Shop which is located in most malls. And there is Twee Shop Asoke 2/3 Sukhumvit 16 tel 02 229 4431 open Mon-Fri 8:00 am – 8:00 pm, Sat 10:00 am – 7:00 pm, and Sun 10:30 am – 7:00 pm. Also Tang Hua Seng department store at Khao San.

      Hi there, Any idea on how to contact the fabric businesses in Thailand via email at all?


      • Fernando 3:18 am on March 10, 2016 Permalink | Reply

        Hi Kandice,
        In Thailand mailing is not very common. Moreover, most of retailers can’t speak nor write in English.
        My advise is you to come over or ask someone in place to do the “shopping” for you.

        Also it is possible to search for an intermediate in town who knows how to deal with the retailers and get a better price.

        If you need some help on this, send me a mail: fernando@hips.asia


        • Tam 6:41 pm on October 7, 2018 Permalink

However, I have tried to search most of the websites to find out mass markets but couldn’t see any that sell these types of product. Can u please help me to find any markets in Thailand that sell polyster wadding and the fabric on the sencond picture but in mass quantity? It would be great if you can help me
          Thank you for your kindness!

      Hi, great site and wonderful resource for a newbie at fabric shopping in BKK. May I know if its safe to travel alone with a bb? Any good rest stops to suggests? Would traffic be a nightmare if I am going to leave around noon? Thanks in advance!


      • Jill C. 10:22 am on October 25, 2014 Permalink | Reply

        Traffic is bad during morning and evening rush hour. Around 4:00 pm traffic in the city starts to get jammed. Noon should be good as to traffic. It is safe to travel alone with a baby. I suggest going to Chinaworld mall in Pahurat, used to be Central Wangburapa. It’s air conditioned, has a food court and restrooms, and it has all the fabric a quilter or crafter would ever need. You could easily spend a day there. The shops at Chinaworld moved from Sampeng Lane, so they are authentic wholesale fabric shops. Must see – Kimono house floor 1 near elevator for fabric. Nearby you can walk over to Sampeng Lane but it is difficult to maneuver with a baby – you could not take a stroller on the walking lane with people pushing and shoving and motorcycles going through. Have a nice shopping trip with bb!

      Thank you for the information. I visited some of the shops mentioned here, and they actually had great selections of patterns. I am wondering if they can also actually make something out of their fabric as well, or only selling fabric. I am now trying to have bedding for my baby customized and I am looking for a tailor who can make them. Do you know any place who can do the work for me? I have an idea/picture of what I want. I need to get fabric and find a tailor to do it for me.

      Thanks you so much again for the information!

      Warm regards,

      Thank you so much for information about where to shop fabric. This has been my best shopping-day ever. I am in love with Bangkok! Next time I have to buy more fabric and buttons and….and use a post office to send it home. I have to put some of the fabric in my dear husband’s suitcase. He has been with me for hours to carry today.
