I have written a little guide to sewing shops in singapore over at notabilia, one of my favourite art/design blogs and happily based in singapore. I talk a bit about some of my favourite shops for textiles (see a sample of what I buy here), useful sewing suppliers and haberdasheries. I’d also love to hear about other sewing shops and haberdasheries not in the city centre, if you know of any, and your other recommendations. let me know here or there.
as an aside, I am also known to the people’s park complex shopkeepers as “L’s (my mother) daughter”, and only “L’s daughter”. my mother’s been a regular for decades. when I show up on my own, they look around to see if she’s about and say, “oh! you came on your own today without your mum.” yes, I am eternally reminded of my youth when this happens.
