do you know that Sing Mui Hen is now in puchong?

i am so happy that they moved from pudu to puchong (near giant bandar puteri).  and i am so so happy that they are having their opening sale till the end of november with discount up to 50%.  and i am so so so happy that my favourite blend fabrics are at rm25 per yard.


more clover

fabrics up to 50% discount,

yarn dye fabrics also on sale

american cotton fabrics at rm25 per yard
blend fabric at rm25 per yard.
the temptation is too great, i succumbed.  

my favourite blend fabrics
my catch for today :)
given with friendly service.

this is so wonderful.  everything that a crafter or a sewist need, under one roof,  in puchong.  fabrics and sewing notions.  sewing machines and their accessories.  near Giant bandar puteri, the same block as Citibank puchong branch, a few blocks away from maybank and petsmore.  in one outing you can get your groceries, do your banking, take care of your pets' needs, and get the stuff that you need for all your sewing projects.  in that case, i suppose the family won't mind waiting while you browse at the fabric section.

btw, they told me that they are planning to have their products available online.  and walk-in customers will enjoy their lower online prices too.  check them out here.

have a nice weekend everyone.

updated 2sep2015:  this an announcement from their FB page.  they have ceased operations in malaysia.

installing fly zipper on faaiz's trousers

i installed the fly zipper on faaiz's new trausers.  it's corduroy.  not an easy fabric to sew.
