But then I was lucky enough to find this store by accident. It sells all the stuff I need for my projects and almost every time I thought that I may have to buy something online, I go there and voila! - they carry it in their store :)
So this post is for all crafters and sewers in Singapore that haven't found a good local store for their sewing supplies needs!
The store name is Sing Mui Heng. There are 2 branches, in Chinatown and Textile Centre, and they now even have a new online webstore: seweasy.com.sg. Even though the items they carry are more or less the same, if you're looking for laces and cotton/linen tapes, the branch in Textile Centre carries wider range of them, while the one in Chinatown carries more fabrics, beads, bag making supplies, Brother sewing machine (and quite various presser foot) - and they also have sewing/quilting classes.
However, since today I went to the one in Chinatown, I post some pics of their branch there. Enjoy!
