Hello! Are there any Brooklyn sewers out there? I need a recommendation where I can purchase patterns in Brooklyn. I've been to a number of stores, but they tend to be for quilting and don't have clothes patterns. Any advice???

thanks!

I know that there is at least 1 place in Brooklyn where you can buy patterns, although I don't remember the name (I live in NJ, so I don't so much make it to Brooklyn often myself). If you want to go into Manhattan, P&S Fabrics on Broadway near Canal carries patterns. Their address is 360 Broadway.

That's funny someone should ask this question...I was just wondering this week if there was ANYWHERE in Bklyn to get patterns or notions! I live in Bklyn during the week and NJ on the weekend so I usually try to bring whatever supplies I will need with me. I relaly would love to find a place to get notions/patterns/fabric without having to trek into the city or out to LI. (I'm not too far from JFK)

I live in Brooklyn. There used to be several fabric stores on Bridge Street in Fulton Mall where you could buy patterns. All but one of those stores is now closed, and the remaining one doesn't sell patterns.

Save-a-thon out in Mill Basin (near Kings Plaza mall) might have them, if they are still in business. You could try yahoo yellow pages for the phone number (they are/were at 2452 Flatbush Avenue).

I sometimes go to Manhattan to P&S fabrics on Broadway (near Franklin Street) in Manhattan, or to Paron (W. 40th between 7th and 8th).

But quite honestly, nearly all of my pattern shopping is online!

Good luck!

Terry

ButtonFaith, if you are near JFK, you could hop on the Van Wyck Expressway and go to Sew Right in Oakland Gardens, Queens. I'm not sure about patterns, but they have a really good supply of notions and it is the best place I know for sewing machine sales/repair. They also have classes.

Their website:

If you get on the mailing lists for the big 4 you'll get notices of sales. The BMV club gets you a discount too. I live near a Joann's but I love my Burda. For a woman who used to sew Vogue designer patterns most of the time, I prefer Burda, which used to be Burda World of Fashion. Other people like Ottobre, both come in English. All of the small, independent pattern companies are available on line and I buy some of these too. PR sells lots of patterns as well. I also sew with Hot Patterns. There are lots of choices out there and it is a whole lot easier to click a mouse!

I just started subscribing to Burda and I love the fit! Ottobre Design has been my favorite for a while for children's clothes. And now that Pattern Review is stocking Vogue patterns, I usually order those through PR - I'm on the site so frequently anyway!

Do you go across Staten Island to get from Brooklyn to NJ? If so, there's a Joann's just off the Staten Island Expressway between 440 and the Goethals bridge. I don't like them for most fabric, but they're good for patterns and notions.

Peterion: Funny you should mention Sewright as that is where I bought most of my Babylocks! They are great and it is only 20-25 minutes from me but I was hoping for a neighborhood place...it seems so far to drive out there for notions....and I might end up with another machine! LOL!
I'm going to try looking for Sav-a-thon...that is really much closer!
