Thought I could afford a short four day trip to New York City in August
and on day four I finally hailed a cab and made the journey to…
the NYC Garment District!
First stop was the iconic 8 foot bronze " The Garment Worker " by Judith Weller
The sculpture was placed at Broadway and 7th in 1984 and the artist based it on her father; a tailor.
But, my real destination was the famous Mood Fabrics !!!!
Located on the third floor at
225 W. 37th St. NY
It is 40,000 square feet, three floors of fantastic fabrics.
Jack Sauma is the founder and a designer that switched to wholesale fabric sales in 1991.
In 1993 Mood opened its doors to everyone
and in 2001 it moved to its current location.
Mood Fabrics has an amazing selection of fabrics that are clearly marked
and the variety of fabrics boogle the mind !!!!
Apparently there are no free samples :)
And although the variety of fabrics is unimaginable, the staff is extremely helpful
and the store is not overwhelming.
I truly planned on just visiting the most famous fabric store in NYC thanks to Project Runway.
But, my daughter feel in love with a silk fabric and a cashmere fabric that were
shockingly reasonably priced!
So one silk blouse and one cashmere scarf coming up :)
All in all Mood Fabrics was a great experience !
The prices were surprisingly low,
the selection was fantastic,
and the salespeople were great !
And now my darling daughter and I are off to our next adventure.
