Here's one for beads, I love thisc place,

Its at Holland V, [url:http://beadsatwork.com]Beads @
Work[/url].Its at 25D Lorong Liliput above Subway.

There's a ribbon and yarn shop at the shopping centre there also but I can't remember the exact name of the building, its above cold storage on the 2nd floor. If you've been there, I guess you know what I'm talking about.

 Its really small and easy to miss.

Daiso is one of my favourite unorthodox places for getting craft supplies. Every branch carries a slightly different range and the goods are often changing so you never know what you might find. I've visited the ones at VivoCity (HarbourFront MRT), Plaza Singapura (Dhoby Ghaut MRT) and IMM (near Jurong East MRT). Small wooden flowers for cards, striped felt and fabric ribbon are some of the things I've gotten from there. A little imagination does wonders.

Hi! There's this cross-stitch shop in Far East Plaza called 'The Knotty Shop'. It's on the 4th floor: #04-43. It's a pretty small corner shop very near one of the escalators.

It sells mainly cross-stitch fabric, kits, thread (DMC and some Anchor), beads and other stuff that I can't remember. And it's cheaper than spotlight Cheesy They have classes for cross stitch and hardanger too.

Hey guys,
My mum recently visited Singapore, and took a visit to Arab St for me, and bought a bunch of silk dupioni in a range of different colours from Mahaco Impex.
I was wondering if you guys know of any specialty bridal fabric shops around that have a website and might ship to Australia?

Thanks!

Fabrics/Sewing
If you're looking for cheap fabrics for your crafting needs, the old Woodlands Town Centre (next to the causeway) has about 3 shops that sells fabric. One of them (next to the POSB ATMs) sells quite a variety and are really cheap! prices can range from $1.50 to $3.80 per yard for cotton, corduroys, denim, lace, etc. Really good bargain. They don't carry Japanese prints though.

The Japanese fabrics can be found at Block 32, Park Crescent, Level 2 (behind People's Park & OG). They are usually available at $6 per metre. Cheaper than the stuff at Spotlight. Cheesy There's also a store there called Brighton Accessories (I think) that sells really cheap stuff for crafting & sewing accessories, like threads, ribbons, laces, D rings for bags & pouches, pins, and stuff for your sewing machines like needles, bobbins, etc. There are a few other shops on the same floor that sells sewing stuff.

Yarns
- Golden Dragon Store at People's Park Centre is the place to go. It has a wide variety of good yarn.
- There's a tiny shop at Holland Village, the same building as Cold Storage on Level 2. I don't know the name but it's at pretty much towards the end away from the escalator. It carries some brands of good yarn. Pricier than Golden Dragon I think, but it does carry some brands which Golden Dragon doesn't.
- For cheap acrylic, there's always Spotlight. And sometimes when Spotlight has sales, it's pretty worthwhile to buy yarn from there.
- Daiso also has a variety of yarns and also knitting needles & crochet hooks, in plastic & bamboo. All priced at $2. If you like a certain yarn at Daiso, you probably have to buy quite abit because they come in small skeins.

Beads
- Bead Cage at Centrepoint at Orchard Road has a nice range.
- Mix and Match at People's Park Centre has very good range as well and they are cheaper than Bead Cage.
Both shops organise beading classes too.

Basically, Golden Dragon Store at Chinatown is awesome for just about everything. You can get most of your crafting needs there. Though for some items, it's not the cheapest place, the variety is really good. They have yarn, sewing, beading, quilting, basket weaving, japanese fabrics, cross stitch, embroidery, pattern books, ribbons and laces etc etc. It imports quite a bit foreign quality craft brands, like Clover. This shop has been around for a long time, since 1949! Explore this shop and you will feel like a kid in a candy store. Tongue
