I’ve been keep buying fabric since I fall in love in sewing! I do love to keep nice printed fabric, you know why? Cause I can just choose what I want to use to sew for my projects. I bought those fabric which is Pre Cut ones so that it’s not wasted. Just do project that is small should be no problem!
I have been wondering around few places which have nice fabrics design and most of them do sell all sorts of crafts materials which you will need it for your projects.
SIM HUI HENG
I super love this outlet, they have lots of fabric designs, materials like cotton, canvas, lace etc. They also sell like bag accessories like bag handle, buttons all sorts of varies craft items. labels which is made of leather, even sewing machines too.
They do have a sewing machine demo located at their HQ, which is the Chinatown outlet. If you are looking for sewing machine, they do have demo for you and you will know which machine suits you. Brother brand is mostly they have, emboderory machine, if you need advise do ask for assistant and they will recommend you.
Their pre cuts fabric only $4.50, sometimes they do have promotions do check out at their outlets. Fabric price range between $5 from canvas fabric, $18 for cotton fabrics.

I realise there is only one and spotlight outlet in Singapore and it’s the biggest outlet. Of course they have more things, Spotlight not only sells crafts, they do have home accessories, home deco etc. I always go there to hut for nice printed fabrics. As compared to SIM HUI HENG , I would say Spotlight is a BEST place to hut for fabrics. They have the nicest fabric that I’ve found in Singapore.
But it would be a bit PRICEY for most of the fabrics. I feel is a good place to hut for all sort of fabrics. Sometimes it might left over not as much but do come back another time!
They also sewing accessories items, such as storage box for your accessories, Pre Cut fabrics too! Cutting Mat, Sewing machine also available. I think they do have demo for you too. Do check with the assistant person if you want to try or explore the machine with your own eyes. This place is like a heaven for crafters. Most of things you will sure find it here. So whenever you think of crafts materials, HERE! is where you have to go.

Everybody knows that Daiso is one of the store which have everything just $2! Well, They don’t have much crafts items in store but! if you are looking for budget item, do check out Daiso first before you head down to any other store. Because there is something always worth just $2. I mean not as good quality but to test out those tools and get use to it first before you get a better ones, right? As for me is good because something things can be a lot of pricey, and when you come to something that you need, you will want it immediately or as soonest but when you find somewhere with cheaper price. You goanna hate the store. I have that feeling before and it’s really no good. Especially when you buy it and it won’t work for you. It will be a waste.
They do have lots of useful items, like knitting needles, yarns but of cause not as good quality as spotlight. like I say, buy it for testing first. Not much for sewing but maybe needles should have, fabrics with just a few yards with cotton materials.
Different outlet might have different things add on. Do check out the biggest ones. It would be best.
There are a few outlet:
Parkway Parade … etc..
Chinatown Point / People’s Park Centre
Lastly is Chinatown! I guess everyone quite familiar with this place. This is the place where you find lots of cheap fabrics and crafts materials
