If you want to get craft supplies and festive decorations, you can consider going to a supplier shop in PJ Old Town called Sin Wah. It is located next to McDonalds at PJ Old Town, opposite Watsons.
You can get to Old Town via Rapid KL bus no. U66 that stops at the Jalan Othman bus station. The shop sells things ranging from all types of ribbons (all colour, shades and designs), beads, sewing products, Malay wedding gifts, cloth, jewelry findings, etc.
The items are slightly more expensive than other suppliers like Macys in Petaling Street but are cheaper than other sewing and supplies shop that you find in shopping complexes or commercial area. I find their satin ribbons- the plain coloured ones that comes in all shades are the cheapest.
Other place you can go to get your beading and craft supplies are in Masjek India- from the Masjek Jamek LRT or the STAR station opposite, cross the bridge by the river towards OCBC’s direction. From there, turn right and walk along the road- OCBC Bank would then be on your left and the river on your right as you walk alongside.
At night Masjek India area comes alive with stalls- and if you walk further, you reach the Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman. But you can reach the shop before reaching Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman- these shops are located nearby Mydin Wholesale. You can walk in to a few and check out the prices before buying. If you are looking for beads, then these shop usually sell plastic ones. For the better quality beads, you need to go around the better shops in Petaling Street.
Over the years, I’ve amassed a lot of ribbons and beads of all colors and shades because I just love them. That’s why I go round exploring places that sell them. If you buy beads or satin ribbons from gift shop, they’re very expensive- stalls selling sewing supplies will sell these items cheaper. And while you are at these stalls, check out the little miniature baskets and Malay design items used for ‘hantaran kahwin’- gifts the bride and groom give to one another, as well to guests who attend the wedding.
