Walking past this business, I waved at this late-working Dress Maker Tailor who waved back. She gave me permission to take this photo. Notice again the pictures of Thai Royalty on the top shelf. The Thai flag has stripes of red (Thai land and people), white (religions), and blue (the monarchy - double width). Earlier flags (when Siam) had a white elephant centered in a red field. The white elephant "chang samkhan" is auspicious in both Hinduism and Buddhism, and strongly associated with Thai kings. One of our friends recently emailed us a link to a U.K. story about a tourist playing with a baby elephant. The link was blocked by the Thai Digital Ministry for Economic and Social Affairs because of "inappropriate content".   The standing fan on left and white air conditioner on top right are necessities here -  hot & humid as my growing up in Houston. In the other pics you'll usually see shoes/slippers outside and whirring fan inside. Notice the yellow sign outside asking people to remove shoes before entering. In Thailand one always removes shoes before entering a Wat, but also in schools, small shops, and homes. 

 

On the street which has the rear entrance to d'VIENG Santitham. In between Soi 4 and Soi 6. Next to some new building work. Was open yesterday, 8th April.

The above shop was closed at 11.00 on Monday.

I tried 2 places where previously ladies worked with sewing machines by side of road and no one there. Then on way to buy food found a lady by side of road on Suthep who could carry out small job for me.

I know two that are open. One is down the small soi just off Ratchdamnoen, next to Burger King, about 50m down the soi.  This is a rather large shop, so should be able to do just about anything.

 

There is a sewing lady set up inside the moat facing Chiang Mai Ram hospital. Good for repairs. I've had her do a lot of remaking of clothes for me.
