Shopping for Quilting Supplies in Chinatown, Singapore

Updated March 2016
 This is how I get to the fabric shops in People's Park, Chinatown.
I caught the Downtown MRT line to Chinatown and take exit D. This brought me out  beside People's Park Centre. 101 Upper Cross Street, Singapore 058357. Turn right and go through the glass opening doors into the shopping complex. These are the shops that I visit in this complex.

Lai Guan Beads Store #01-05 Peoples Park Centre. 
Lai Guan Beads Store
As I entered into the mall on my Left was Lai Guan Beads Mart #01-05. This store has a large selection of charms and beads. 

Next door is Sing Mui Heng Pte Ltd. #01-05A.  A great range of quilting fabrics, supplies, bag making accessories, and beading items. Once you leave Sing Mui Heng take the escalator on your right hand side up to the 2nd floor.

We are now heading to the fabric area of People's Park.

As you come up the escalator from level 1 to level 2 walk straight ahead down this aisle to the back of the building and turn left.

After turning left walk along the aisle directly to the glass opening doors that will take you out of the building. Walk up the stairs and the corridor will turn left.

This over bridge takes you over the road into the Fabric Market.

Walk through the corridor and past the entrance to the OG shop.

Turn right and walk down 1 flight of stairs.

You will then see the very popular Swanston bathroom product store. Walk into this area and walk down the side aisle.

Once you have walked past the beauty area you will enter into the remainder of the floor where fabric stores are located.
Listed below are some of the stores I visit on a regular basis. Most stores do not open until 11.30am so I find the best time to go is in the early afternoon.

Tucked at the end of the building you will find 'Pow Li Specialise in Grinding Knives & Scissors.' #02-1040 Ph 65352450.

This lady did a great job of sharpening my scissors.

T&S stocks some great designer fabrics. #02-1104

Malin Textiles stocks Japanese cotton prints

Teoh Huat Textiles stocks linen. #02-1144

Brighton Accessories has a great range of haberdashery. #02-1158

There are also other interesting shops in this area so I hope you enjoy exploring this area of Singapore.

Have a great week
