I can't help you but this sounds quite exciting. I hope you post pictures of your loot when she gets home.

There are 8 TQS members living in Singapore. You could contact any (or all) of them through their profiles. One of them is definitely quite active and has a blog (http://www.mariannebos-quilter.blogspot.co.uk).

Good luck with your search. I spent a few weeks in Hongkong about 20 years ago, and had a fantastic time buying fabrics. I did not even quilt at the time. I concentrated on silks. Quite often the best buys where at street markets in areas of the city where tourists and foreigners normally don't do, and a little haggling over the price (but always with respect and compliments for the seller) was expected. I wish I could sneak into your daughter's suitcase and do that shopping for you. :)

Where to go in Singapore to purchase fabric 01 Nov 2013 18:26 #112180

I am hopeful that you or some of you can help me with this question. My daughter is leaving for Singapore in two weeks for her job and I want her to purchase some fabrics for me. She will have limited time in the two weeks she is there to search for fabrics. My questions are, does anyone have a resource in Singapore for batiks and silks? Best shops to go to? Prices for fabrics there? Any tips for shopping for fabrics in Singapore? I greatly appreciate your responses to my questions. I am excited for her to have this opportunity and her willingness to support mom's quilting habit! :D
