NY Shopping Day rescheduled to Sept 17th!
Great news folks! I was able to find another date real soon that both Elliott Berman and Metro Textiles could open, September 17th. Here’s our schedule recap:
9:45am Gather in front of Starbucks at 494 8th Ave (corner of 8th and 35th St). I will hand
out maps of the garment district and we’ll split into 2 groups.
9:55am Each group will walk to either Metro Textiles (265 W 37th St, Ste 908, between 7th
and 8th but closer to 8th) or Elliott Berman (225 W 35th St, #7, between 7th and 8th
but closer to 7th)
10:00am Shopping to commence!
11:00am Start having your fabrics cut
11:30am Leave for other store. If you started at Metro, go to Elliott Berman and vice versa
1:00pm Start having your fabrics cut
1:30pm Finished at both stores
At this point, you can use your maps to shop at other fabric or trim stores in the district, have lunch or just go home. I look forward to seeing you all there!
As most of you know by now, the hurricane mostly left NYC alone, although Jack and I evacuated (mandatory!) from our apt along with my sister and her family to NJ. We had a great weekend and came back last night. I refused to set my apt to rights though seeing as how I was pretty tired. Basically, I shoved everything I own into closets and bathrooms and my apt now looks like I just moved in and haven’t yet unpacked. People, I hate unpacking. HATE. IT. I might just leave my apt like this until I move again. Jack doesn’t need to take a bath right (his tub is filled with boxes right now)? I could just wipe him down occasionally, right? Sounds like a plan to me.
In other sewing news, my sewing mojo hasn’t been seen for weeks. I think it was last seen walking down the West Side Hwy with a thumb out and my sewing machine strapped to it’s back. I will try to
force the issue sew something this week. Emphasis on the word try.
Hope everyone else has their mojo
chained to the sewing machine safely in hand.
