I bought some lace and some hot fix crystals and Kati got some wooden buttons for a Christmas ornament project she’s working on. Then we headed up to The City Quilter – the only quilt shop in NYC. They buzz you in the door when you arrive.
The City Quilter has a lot of really current fabric collections around the shop and some other fun samples and projects.
They also have a shelf of special NYC themed fabric.
And my husband thought this quilt was hilarious:
Purl Soho was our next stop. It’s in a very trendy neighbhorhood and focuses mostly on yarn and needlework. There are some fabrics there and other cute little projects. Kati recommended it and I’m glad we went!
During our trip we did quite a few things – a Circle Line night harbor cruise, we attended tapings of both The Colbert Report and The Daily Show, hit up the Top of the Rock for some great morning sunrise photos over the city and had a delicious food tour of Chelsea market. I know both of us were exhausted by the end of the trip (we mostly walked and took the subway everywhere). Really had a fabulous time! Here is a slideshow with all the photos from my trip:
