New York! New York!

Mood Fabrics in New York City!


Recently I visited New York City with a friend and we “really did the town” so to speak.


View from our apartment!

We enjoyed five full days of museums, Broadway shows, opera, improv at UCB , sketching in Central Park and Columbus Circle, walking the High Line, and while in the Garment District, we went to Mood Fabric Store.

It’s an awesome feeling to be browsing fabrics that famous designers also peruse. Swatch, the mascot dog, wasn’t there that day. I was told he was resting up after a busy weekend with tourists. Between destinations, we walked glamorous Madison Avenue and 5th Avenue, taking in all of the cutting edge window displays. We had so much fun!



Good-bye New York City!

Then I flew to Boston to visit old friends. We went sightseeing, hiking and ate yummy food, including lobster!

Later we went to Greys Fabric, where I was surprised to see a display of familiar indie sewing patterns, including Colette, Dear and Doe, and Sewholic.  I bought a few small items as souvenirs.




I had a fabulous time as you can see from the pictures, but unfortunately, I missed a meet up with Ebi of Making the Flame who kindly invited me to meet up in Boston. It would have been fun to meet a fellow sewer and blogger!

Happy Sewing!

    Oh, what a great trip you “did it all” including the lobster! Being from the Boston area myself, I’m wondering if you could point me in the direction of the shop with the vintage machines… Looks like a spot to visit!

      I really couldn’t tell you what street, but it was where there were many other high end clothing stores. This particular store, (sorry I don’t even know the name of it) used the vintage machines as a window display and inside the display tables even looked like vintage sewing factory furniture.

        I found it! Allsaints Spitalfields on Newbury Street. They are a British a Retailer of fine clothing which is probably waaaay out of my price range & lifestyle, but will keep it on my radar when I venture into town. 😃

    What a fabulous time you had – that is a dream I harbour ,,, I’m sure I will visit New York one day … That photo of you outside the display of vintage sewing machines is like some of the stores over here – the All Saints fashion chain. Not sure if that’s where you’re standing outside, but it looks like it.

    What an amazing trip! Makes me want to travel around my own region a bit more. Next time you’re out this way, we’ll meet up. 🙂 Or when I’m in your neck of the woods!
