where to buy sewing machine accessories (needles etc)

Post by MDMK » Sat May 05, 2018 8:30 pm

does anyone know anywhere in Hua Hin (or surrounding areas) where I can buy sewing machine stuff ?

machine needles and threads mainly as they are the biggest money saver for me, the damn things cost a small fortune here

If stuck I can get them in Bangkok, but the shop I have used in the past in BKK is in a suburb and it takes half a day by the time I get a taxi there, buy what I need and get back. So even if it's more expensive in Hua Hin I don't mind as I will save a good few hundred baht on taxi fares and save loads of time and faffing around.

(will have a hire car in Hua Hin but won't have one in BKK)

Lazada is pretty good, but there is the Singer shop on Petchkasem Rd near Soi 64.

Thanks! I will try the one on PKR near soi 64. Lazada is probably a non-starter, what with having no "own" address and only foreign credit cards.

Lazada will take payment COD or over the counter (7-11). I've never tried it, but I've heard they have centres where you can collect from.

You'll certainly get your needles near Soi 64. but not sure what the 'etc' is :D

ohhhhhh, that's interesting re Lazada ..... very interesting, I think I'll go have a browse now.

the etc .... no one knows what the etc could be. The etc is the magical mysterious part of any shopping trip. It could be a pair of scissors, it could be a tin of pins or a measuring tape.... or one time in Bangkok it was an overlock machine. Since I am hoping not to divorce in Hua Hin, I had maybe better tone it down on the size, weight and price of any etcs I buy. :D
