I think Golden Dragon Store must be the oldest crafts store in Singapore. Located at the very far corner of People's Park Complex and surrounded by dessert stalls. The variety offered is astounding and of good quality. There are some unusual crafts like raffia basket weaving, ribbon embroidery and chinesey crafts like lantern making, cross-stitch and chinese knotting.
I was there for the yarns as this store stocks all the different types of yarns, wholesale option available. Acrylic, polyester, nylon, bamboo, wool, cotton, silk blends, alpaca, angora, linen, merino wool, mohair and even 100% cashmere yarns that cost S$29 for 25gm. Skeins ranging from 25gm to 1kg. In just about every size, colour and design. I will probably come back for the metallic bamboo yarn that is really soft and pretty. At S$12.90 for 50gm, a sweater will cost me S$154.80.
