I just got back from a short but phenomenal trip to New York. I used to live in Manhattan, so it is really wonderful to be able to return and visit friends, eat delicious Indian food, enjoy some fabulous cocktails and, of course, shop for fabric.
Guys, I forgot how amazing the fabric shopping in New York is. Utterly, truly amazing. This time around, I was accompanied by Gertie, who is every bit as lovely as you might believe from her blog. I had a really nice time just sitting and chatting, then hunting for fabric together.
After hitting B&J and Mood for fabric, we stopped in to Tinsel Trading Company. I just can’t get enough of their incredible selection of vintage millinery flowers, all so beautifully arranged. A small selection of them are available on their site, but it doesn’t really compare to the in person experience.
This is where I bought the pips for the hat I made for my wedding, by the way.
It is definitely a recommended stop if you are ever in the garment district.
