I was in New York City last week. I had Friday off from work and spent the day shopping around SoHo and the fashion district. Fabric and trim shopping in NYC is one of my favorite things to do. It makes me super giddy. I was on the lookout for anything different and unusual to add to my stash. During my late night sewing binges, my stash always comes in handy. I haven’t even opened the stuff I bought the last time I was in New York.. Lol. As if I needed to buy more!
Here are a few of my purchases..
M & J Trimming – Nailheads, nailheads, nailheads!! When I saw these little guys I had to buy a mixture of packets. Excessive, maybe?? But I already have some heavy metal ideas brewing. While I was in the store, I noticed they launched Project DIY.. A gift subscription that sends materials to make trendy accessories. Check it out. Very cool!
Mood Fabrics – I love Mood Fabrics. This is the ONE STOP fabric shop.. If you visit NYC, put Mood on your must see list. There are bolts and bolts of fabric, but with a mix of excitement. I bought a stash of colorful zippers. They were such a great price. I’m still wishing I bought more!!
Purl Soho – This place makes me want to cry. Not only does it remind me of living in NYC, but it makes me want to quit my job and just sew 24-7.. Nothing else. Everything they sell is just soooooo lovely. Can you guess what the roll is? A fat quarter of chalkboard cloth.. Ha. Awesome.
Well, that’s it for today. Happy sewing.
