It's been very stressful at work lately, so sewing vacation is just what I need! Six days of sewing with eleven other couture enthusiasts and Susan Khalje, whose work I was craving to see for so long.
It took me long time to find and choose the right fabric - I could not find much in the Garment District... better bouclés at Linton Tweeds were sold out, and, yet, finally, I found this great piece which I love!
this beautiful bouclé was bought at Mendel Goldberg in Chinatown.

It's a beautiful store packed up to ceiling with great fabrics. And their basement is full of end of roll treasures, which you get for a bargain price. Check out this slide show from New York Times for a little bit of history of this great place.
Meanwhile, I still have to pack! And, I need to finish my muslin! Tomorrow at around lunch time I am meeting the rest of the group at Mendel Goldberg, and after a quick lunch in the area we will get trims in the Garment District and head toward Baltimore.
I will be posting here updates as often as possible, so stay tuned for the next post!
Have you taken any sewing classes? And what classes would you love to take?
