Sew Fun in collaboration with Independent Market welcome you to experience our specially curated space in Celebration of Tanglin Halt.

We have been asked to recommend online pattern shops for clothing patterns. Whilst most definitely not comprehensive in any sense, we have been following these boutique patterns makers for their fabulous designs, many of which are on our bucket list of clothes to make and wear. Here's what's on our list:-
We love the variety and playfulness of Rad Patterns made for jersey/knit stretch fabrics. We are so inspired to sew for the whole family!
Loose fitting stylish clothes patterns to wear everyday (for the minimalist wardrobe) - The Draper's Daughter
Sew Fun is the product of our dedication to share our knowledge and love for fabric and sewing. Whilst we offer a range of classes for various skill levels at our sewing studio in Singapore. We bring to you our Youtube channel with this inaugural instructional video in hope to carry on our love in knowledge sharing with the community within the Red Dot and beyond.
As our studio shifts gears to produce fabric face masks for our community; we are making available a FREE face mask pattern at our pattern store for home sewers to make their own fabric face masks, for themselves, for their families, as well as for the community at large.
Please understand that this is an extremely difficult decision for us to make. However, as the Covid-19 virus is now thought to be spreading via community transmission here in Singapore, it would be irresponsible of us to continue with our classes at this point in time. It is more important to follow the recommended measures and as a community take care of the vulnerable amongst us.
Rest assured we will resume our classes when the situation has improved and the current measures are lifted. We will keep you posted on any updates as well as when classes can resume via both email and whatsapp.
Drop us an email at email@example.com or whatsapp us at 96431128 if you have any questions for us.
Stay Safe Everyone!
We all know what to do - stay home, only go out to get your groceries or food, keep in touch with people - especially those who live alone - but most importantly remember to be kind. Everyone is feeling the pressure of this scary situation, so we need to look out for each other.
Because a lot of students come to us as beginners to the craft of sewing, we often get questions on where to shop for fabric. Here's our take on safe to-go places to purchase fabric, sewing accessories, and other crafty sewing essentials in the lovely and endearing district of Chinatown! This is a great area to source for fabric whether you're new to sewing or are already one with your sewing machine.
We present to you our suggestions for fabric and sewing accessory stores in People's Park Complex, which offers a good concentration of stores selling a variety of fabric suitable for your projects, no matter what you are working on.

Looking to buy a sewing machine? We work with a local Janome distributor, Guan Lee Long Sewing Machine, to sell some of the sewing machine models that are used in our class. They have agreed to supply selected models to our students at a discounted rate. Do inform your instructor during the class, or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, should you want to purchase a sewing machine.
No time to pop by Chinatown? Take a look at the fabric we have on offer at the Uyii studio! We have regular shipments of fabric from overseas (e.g. Japan, China), and we also use deadstock fabric and vintage materials for our classes and products. Most of our fabrics are not available locally. You may purchase the fabric when you attend classes at our Midview City studio.
