New York Part 1

My husband surprised me with a New Years trip to New York (sweet!). He was gracious enough to spend the days walking around shops down the fashion district.  Mood fabrics was one of my favorite stops and unlike anything I've seen! Rows of fabric lined wall after wall. I was a kid in the candy store...a crazy tourist! 

I loved how they had designs on each dress form. That would be my job if I worked here (have to dream).  

I couldn't take my eyes away from the lace selection. Stunning hand embellished beadings, detailing I've never seen (very Marchesa). I have to say, it was overwhelming just thinking of all the projects you can do, but very inspiring. Can't wait to get home to my sewing machine.


  1. I LOVE Mood Fabric! It's really a pity. I LIVE in NY and yet I can never seem to find the time to go. They have such a great selection and amazing accessories and embellishments! There's a place across the street I think (on 39th) called Top Trimmings. It has EVERYTHING. Check it out! And have fun in NY!

  2. I'm so jealous! That fabric store looks amazing :)


  3. Isn't Mood amazing? I just went to NYC for the first time in October, and I made sure I stopped there! They have evverryytthinngg!!
