Today welcomed a somewhat impromptu morning trip into the city to visit the infamous Mood and B&J Fabrics. I thought about it yesterday and figured this was an opportunity that I don't get too often, so off I went. I cannot begin to explain the amount and types of fabrics available in NYC. It seriously is one of those things that you have to see to believe. The main reason for me going into the city is that I have been searching high and low for silk blue and stripe fabric (more on this in my next post). You would think this wouldn't be so difficult to find. But, I have scoured the internet and not found one good source. I am so glad I went into the city to visit these shops. They can be quite pricey but the quality is amazing and to touch and feel all these selections in person, just amazing. I have been to Mood once before but it has been many years.
In this post, I will share images of the the shops and the next post show and tell.
First stop B&J fabrics, this shop is wonderfully organized.
Yep, one of my purchases, now how could I not get this wonderful red wool crepe fabric?
Marilyn in Italian silk, this fabric is amazing!
Can you guess the inspiration from this piece of silk below?
On to Mood, I don't think you can walk out of this place without something:
Mood actually had some very reasonably priced fabrics too. There was a great selection of silks around $14-16 a yard for silk!
Trip back to the train station. Lovely day at Bryant Park..
How cool is this a shop devoted to spandex?
