Just back from Singapore this week, and I realised how long it has been since I last posted on my Blog. Priorities, Priorities! As a teacher, I have been very busy over the last four months or so, working in two schools, designing and making clothes and more recently dog minding.
Our six day trip to Singapore, was as always, inspirational and different from the last time we were there. Staying in the central business district at the SO Sofitel, meant that we were very central to the MRT and after figuring out our locality in terms of where we wanted to go and how to get there, it wasn’t to difficult for navigate around Singapore to explore different places and take in the views.
As always, I brought my list of fabrics – silks, satins and beautiful laces and made my way to Arab Street near little India and the Raffles Hospital.
Be careful where you shop in Arab Street. Royal Fabrics stock good quality to excellent quality laces of all descriptions including Corded European Laces, Chantilly laces and a range of embellished or beaded laces in a multitude of colours and designs.
If you see an older gentleman there named Andrew, he will look after you and is very knowledgeable about his fabrics. Drop in a few doors up (on his recommendation) to Gim Joo Fabrics if you need satin linings as they have a great range and very cheap.
