Ok, I left the Garment District and the Meet-Up with this feeling that I didn't do the district justice and my full undivided attention, no offence to the lovely ladies that I met on Saturday, it's just that I felt there were several stores that I neglected and that I simply must return. So on the Monday (as Sunday it is closed) I did just that.

I was seeking some basic fabrics to make my summer wardrobe. I found success at A& J Fabrics which had lots of good basic cottons, drills and denims. My purchases were the below stretch drills that will be perfect to make shorts/capris.
Of course I had to head back to Mood, as I only spent about an hour and a half there previously as just needed more time! I met the lovely Noel who looked after me.
I bought the following fabrics:

Now I just need to start saving to return to NYC next year to make my purchases for my winter wardrobe....I wish.
