If you'd like to know where PatternReview sewing instructor Kenneth D. King shops for fabrics, trims and supplies in the Garment District, check out this interview I did with him recently. He's a big fan of the little hole-in-the-wall stores, just to give you a hint.

I bet one of those places is Metro Textiles--you really do have to step over fabric and it is not for the claustrophobic. But that's what you do to get gorgeous cotton batiste florals and stripes for $5/yard. (At least those were by favorite finds when I was there with ASDP in October)

Nope, he didn't mention it. Chic Fabrics on W. 39th is his favorite, followed by two to three others on W. 39th.

The interview mentions G&R fabrics for leather. Do you have the address? I am not familiar with this one.

Thanks for the great article. Even though I'm in NYC, I don't get to the garment district very often, and when I do, it can a bit overwhelming. It's great to have an "insiders" take on where to shop.

Loreen, G&R is at 239 W. 39th. All of KK's favorite stores are on the uptown side of W. 39th, within a few yards of each other.

Thank you for posting this (and for interviewing him)! I don't live in NYC but I do live in the same city as Haberman Fabrics!

Maybe I should be encouraging my son to go to college in New York City. He is applying to Columbia, so...maybe I will have to visit often if he goes there.

Lindsay, Will your new blog cover hotels at good prices in the area, and how to get from any of the the airports to the hotels in the New York area.

Or if you are coming from the Riverdale, Kingston, New Paltz area (Ulster County) on the train?

Thanks.
