Where can I find Knitting kit?

Postby sundaymorningstaple » Wed, 11 Jul 2012 2:48 pm

As above...... Thanks!


Hoops, knitting needles, yarns, etc., etc. Any one stop shops out there?

Saw this thread but it seems Dragon is more for needlepoint except for carrying yarns. Where to get the needles and such?

Somebody else in the family, but I used to do embroidery and macramé years ago when I was working offshore during down time.

As Plaza Singapura is on the EW/NE MRT lines, I'll try that one first. Thanks.

I think Jurong Point has one near the kopi tiam (3rd floor). I guess the store name is "Siew Lip"

v4jr4, that sounds good as well. Will try them 2nd if stoplight doesn't have what I want (don't know what I want for sure to be honest). But it's the wrong way although it's not too far from Jurong East/Clement area where I work. Thanks.

Well I suppose it beats the other distractions those sailor-boys get up to.

Macrame.... that's funny :P :P :devil:

Was there this evening after work for my craft soil :P

Nope there is no knitting kit sold there. Only cross stitch for kids. Guess you have to try elsewhere.

Edit: typo...

Ang Mo kio Central has one @ blk 709 near to Bee Cheng Hiang.

A shop that sold all kind of kitting / sewing kits.
