Among the frequently asked questions I often got asked ever since i started my craft project is - "where do you find the supplies?"

Instead of repeating my answer over and over again, I guess it's better to share it here for benefits of everyone..

Here is the list of tailor and craft supplies shops in Klang Valley or Selangor area that I know of. Some through personal experience while some are through word of mouth (listing in random sequence, not of any preference):

• Syarikat Sin Wah Tailor Supplies at PJ Old Town, located behind mcDonald's, is a double stores shop lots with quite a vast selection of tailor and craft supplies with reasonable price, from buttons, ribbons, threads to batting, felt, buckles and other accessories. Oh, did I mentioned they opened on Sunday? In the morning only.
Address: 64, Jln 1/19 Seksyen 1, 46000 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
Contact: 603-77823989

• Handy & Trendy Tailor Supply at SS2, occupying half store space, it's located on the same row as CIMB bank, small but compact old timer selling mainly tailor supplies such as buttons, laces, threads and many other accessories at very reasonable price and attentive service. Close on Sunday. 

Address: 70, Jln SS2/60, SS2, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Contact: 603-78756472

• Cottage Patch in Jalan Ampang, a small shop located along the bustling roadside of Ampang main road that can often be easily overlooked. It offers wide range of imported textiles, quality tailor and craft supplies (which they talk about their product quality with pride). They are also Authorized dealers for Brother machine and offer sewing and quilting classes. Personally I like the place for their super friendly service. I got my Brothers machine there and the 2 ladies there spent nearly an hour giving me free hands on lesson on the machine before I finally decided to buy. That's how friendly they were!

Address: 447, Jalan Ampang, 50450, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Contact: 603-4256 3106

• The Haby and Wool, 2nd 3rd floor of Ampang Park. A good variety of tailor supplies from buttons, threads, crochet, books, felt, battings etc but I find it rather pricey in compare to other shops, probably due to the rental and location. Service by the ladies there are prompt and friendly.

Address: Ampang Park Shopping Centre 3.16, 3.17 Jalan Ampang, 50450 Kuala Lumpur.

Contact: 603-21615346

• Yee Button House in SS2 (behind McDonald's) is quite a popular place for tailor supplies and textiles by many, they have a wide range of imported fabric and accessories however the price can be on the higher end compare to some other store. The service was prompt and friendly and they offer many lessons for beginners and advanced crafters too.
Address: 169 Jalan SS 2/24, SS 2, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Selangor.
Contact: 603-7877 0072

• Art Friends in The Garden shopping malls has wide range of craft supplies from sewing, painting, paper craft, DIY to party supplies. Good place to hunt for tools but can be slightly pricey probably due to its location - the Garden mall. If you have a member card you are entitled to 10% discount.
Address: The Gardens, T213, Lingkaran Syed Putra, 59200 Kuala Lumpur.
Contact: 603-22847777

• Spotlight is latest addition to the list but is definitely one of the largest in terms of size and offerings. It's products ranges from fabrics, sewing supplies, DIY craft, party supplies, ready-made soft furnishing cushions, curtains) as well as kitchen and home deco items. But many of my friends shared the same feedback - items are many but not quite cheap. Anyway, visit them to find out by yourself, or you may visit their website here.

Other popular choices by other's recommendation.. 

  • Macy in Petaling Street, it's an old timer that has a vast selection of tailor and craft supplies. However I had not visited that place for years so can't tell much about its service.
  • Bunga Resen online store. It was recommended by one of my crafty bug friends, I have yet to check it out. However was told that they have a variety of craft supplies at attractive low price. If you happen to have visited the site and made some purchases, feel free to comment!
  • Popular Fabric. This online store was recommended by one of my craft friend who is also their frequent patron. Visit the website for fabric, patterns or even books and tools!

These are among the shops that I can recall. If you know of other craft or tailor supplies store around town, please chip in your feedback at the comment section for the benefits of other readers, just like how I've choose to share the info with you here. :)
