Fabulous Fridays : I should learn to sew
Our Go-To Hampton Inn in New York, is a little south and a little west of Times Square, and a couple of blocks north of the garment district. The numbered streets just south of the hotel are home to big names like DKNY, and Calvin Klein, and dozens of little specialty shops. There are entire stores that feature bright prints, geometrics, sparkly fabrics, lace, bead work, spandex, your name the fabric - there is a shop that has every variety they can find. From staples, to specialty items that you can only find in a few places. There are stores that specialize in buttons, or zippers, or other specialty items. I love walking that neighborhood, sticking my head into see what they have. Most welcome the odd photo, some ask that you not. If I knew how to sew, I would need to take an extra suitcase with me to go shopping. Most of them also ship.
