A few months ago, I went to Seoul with some friends. I want to head to Dongdaemun Market in search of what else…fabric! I have accumulated a hoard of fabric while living here in South Korea, but I still need more! Last time I went to Dongdaemun Market I wasn’t sure where to go and I went on a Sunday. I found out when I got there that the market is mostly closed on Sundays. I was still able to find fabric but it was upholstery weight. Great for making cushions, tote bags or curtains, but not what I was looking for. So I did my research this time and headed out early on a Saturday to track down cotton fabrics. Even with directions, however, I got lost. I had read different blogs about where to find fabric. Yet I wandered around the 5th floor without much luck. The amount of stalls packed into these buildings is very overwhelming. I found a few shops, one with interfacing and zippers (10 cents each on the ground floor of building B) but I still hadn’t found much fabric…until I ran into a fellow foreigner in search of the Happy Quilt stall. At this point I thought Happy Quilt was just a store outside of downtown Seoul that I could only dream about going to. She pointed me in the direction of the Happy Quilt stall (it’s by the elevators on the 5th floor, stall 5215 in building B). I had read her blog when doing my research on Dongdaemun and Happy Quilt . How cool was that! Her blog is here. I was not disappointed. Here are some pictures my husband took as I shopped 😀 Yards of fabric for $3-5 each? In the words of my father-in-law…boo yah!!
