Sewing Machine

Post by bitfitz » Thu, 26 Mar 2009 4:49 pm

Does anyone know of a good vendor to buy a sewing machine in Singapore? Any recommendations as I left my Singer in the US. I just resigned from my job and want to start up the hobby again. Any recommendations on a model would be great too.

Any sewing clubs out there? Especially quilting (as if we need quilts in Singapore!) :)

There are Singer shops all over Singapore. Brother is also popular here as well.

I don't sew, but have been known to do embroidery in years gone past while working offshore on the oil rigs. Did a lot of macrame as well. I'm a crotchety old guy by the way.... :wink:

Hi, I know of a quilting group at Tanglin Mall - sorry don't know the name of the shop. The class takes place actually in the shop. Also Creative Escape on River Valley Road does classes too.
regards.

I was also looking to buy a sewing machine and done some research- may go for a secondhand one instead to learn some sewing skills first.
