Yesterday I spent a beautiful sunny day shopping in the fabric district. Now I’m not going to lie the fabric district is not in the nicest part of NYC. You have Port Authority, Times Square and Penn Station all sort of surrounding you so it can get really packed with tourists, but it is well worth a visit if you are in the area.
One of my favorites shops has to be B & J Fabrics!
Pure fabric heaven. Their tag line is, “ Possibly the best fabrics in the world” and I must agree.
I made sure I snapped many pictures with my iphone so that you could all feel like you were there with me.
Take a look around:
Can you tell which fabric caught my eye in this picture?
Loved this navy blue and white chain link.
Ah this just made me happy! All those bright colors.
Patterned bolts of fabric. The whole store was so nice and organized.
You know me and my love for brown & white. This totally caught my eye and it was only $15.95 a yard.
Polka dots will always be a classic to me. So I was happy to see oh so many lined up.
Now the majority of the shops in the fabric district house fabric for garments. There is very little in the world of upholstery. I’ve yet to find a gem that has remnant of Kravet’s and F. Schumacher that I can dig through.
B & J is mostly fashion, but they do have a nice sized collection of cottons in prints and solids that could be used for pillows and window treatments and they all seemed to be around $10-$30 a yard so it’s not that crazy for a nice, clean and organized shop!
