Photo Recap: My Quick Trip to New York

sewing stores in new york

Well, I made it to New York City and back in one piece. I returned with all appendages attached, barely, and I didn’t even lose my marbles during the whirlwind 48 hours. Impressive, eh? So much happened in that short span of time – fabric shopping with Marce (I scored awesome lace and micro mesh at Spandex House), an interview with a famed couturier (next Portrait of a Seamstress? sneak peak below), and quality time with people I call family. As excited as I was to visit the city, I was just as excited to get back so that I could sew my new goodies, especially since I also just bought a new sewing machine. Details on that impulsive, barnyard purchase tomorrow.

      I’m sorry I missed you too! Next time.

      Yes, I found the lace in the back of the first floor.

    Good thing it’s only a photo of the bag with all of your fabric scores because, if I had the real thing in front of me, I would already have my hands inside it, probably even draping all the fabric on myself because that is not weird at all. Yes, that is how curious and excited I am to see what you got and all the pretty things you end up making.

    Seems like it was one awesome trip!

    Fun! And, I second Oona’s comment. The insides of that jacket are fabulous. I wish I could just whizz through NYC for 48 hours here and there… Glad you had a great trip!

    I had to do a double take on that jacket – Incredible interior! I live in Portland, Oregon but now see a trip to New York needs to be in my future!
