Mood Fabrics in New York City!
Recently I visited New York City with a friend and we “really did the town” so to speak.
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.
We ran up and down the aisles just like all the contestants on Project Runway. 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!
Then I flew to Boston to visit old friends. We went sightseeing, hiking and ate yummy food, including lobster!
In Massachusetts , we hiked through the woods and enjoyed the beginning of the leaves turning bright red, orange, yellow, and gold. Later we drove through New Hampshire and Vermont and took in even more fall beauty!
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!
