Sunday Stash – Highsun Market

One of the days we were in Guangzhou, we went to the Highsun Fabric Market.  The buildings were several floors high, with vendor after vendor selling fabric at wholesale prices, from silk to suiting to cotton for dress shirts to everything else you could think of. 

Highsun Fabric MarketIt was amazing, but overwhelming, even for a fabric lover like me. We only had time for one floor, so now I wish I could go back and explore more floors and more vendors. I might have to send my sister on a shopping spree for me.

I am going to make cushions for our patio chairs from these sweet cherries:

pink fabric for a skirtI am contemplating making either a sundress or a skirt with this fabric. It has a nice solid black border for the bottom and subtle pink highlights around the flowers.

Share some of the fabrics from your stash by joining the Sunday Stash group.


Check out everyone else’s stash at the flickr group.  It’s fun to see the variety of fabrics out there, many of which I have not seen anywhere else.

  1. I can’t wait to see what wonderful projects come out of these. I think the last one is my favorite although they all look lovely. 🙂

  2. Hi Terri,

    Welcome home!

    Looking forward to hearing all about your trip.
    How is MK and fam doing? Can you swear in Chinese?



  3. Hi, just reading all about your trip to china, my husband and I are going for our first fabric shopping trip in may 2010, to the same provence, guangzhou. do you know anything about possibly shipping bulk fabric home, that being New Zealand. I know this is a big ask, just thought id try. We are also flying home via usa, would you reccommend any particular place that would be good to go to for beaded trims, like around lampshades? as we can fly in to any city. thanks elena
