While in NYC Papa Bear stayed with the cubs at the hotel so I could browse the Garment District for fabric. I was overwhelmed and crunched for time so I only visited three places. USA Fabric Inc. had a very small selection and the clerk gave me wrong directions to another store, but I found a very cute bear printed cotton that I couldn't pass up. Fabric House Inc. on West 39th was very helpful and I found a couple of Michael Miller prints that go along with the Dick and Jane collection. The clerk at Fabric House Inc. also gave me the correct directions I wanted. B and J fabrics blew me away. I could have spent all day in there going through their swatches. Never have I seen so many designer fabrics...amazing. I settled on a couple of Japanese imported cottons I've had my eye on for a while.
All in all, it may have been insane at times but we had a great time exposing our girls to so many new things. Through all our travels ours girls saw six states in five days and had many first time experiences. Can't wait to go back to the Garment District again and do some real damage at Purl.
