I'm from Singapore too. Does anyone know where I can get a button maker? I've tried art friend, but they're not too helpful. Creative Hands does not carry it either.

Hi Karen!

Are you refering to those fabric covered buttons or the metal pins/badges? 

I saw a small pack of the metal parts for those fabric covered buttons at Spotlight, but as you know, Spotlight is costly!  My mum used make them thru a neighbourhood sewing shop in AMK.  I think it costs abt 30-50 cents per button. 

If you're looking for the metal pins/badges, sorry cant help you.

i am feeling so left out.  a whole large large continent left out of the city guides for craftsters.

China has cities.  Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, and etc.  You've got all the other ones covered...what about Asia...it isn't only filled with Japanese people...

please consider.

thanks!

The boards are added based on participation from those continents/countries/cities. Smiley  If you look, there are others that are not included as well.

We've been working on the City Guides recently.  I'm not sure if Asia is on the list of boards to come, but thanks for starting this thread so Leah can review! Smiley

Don't feel too bad.  When I first started, not even all the US states were represented, and they were some of the first things added.  It was probably close to a year before my state was represented in the lists.  Cheesy

oh! good...sorta.  I guess it's hard also to include EVERYBODY...just feeling a little left out that's all.

It's just i want to craft here too, and it's hard to find out what stores i can go to to buy crafting supplies.  i mean i knew where to go in the US...michaels, jo ann's, etc. but here, i'm outta luck.

good thing someone had a whole comprehensive listing about HK yarn shops...granted when i went, i didn't  find them....due to my stupidity of leaving the directions in the hotel...but still i felt like there was at least that possibility to find crafting things!!

I've got none for beijing, or shanghai or xining... this was why i wanted some discussion on it... all i found was the yarn shops in hong kong.   craft stores, not so much.
