Going to NYC......Tommorrow!!!

Ok, this trip happened a little sooner than I imagined!!! It all started with me spotting cheap airline tickets this morning and the rest is history. I have a early 2 hour flight in the morning. I already called Andy from Andy's dressform to make sure he'd be available to assist me in being measured and choosing my dressform. The hotel is booked and I think I've covered all my bases. I'm SO excited and of course slightly nervous. It will be fun roaming around the city. It's been a few years since I've been but I'm sure once I'm back I'll remember quite alot and navigating will be super easy---a task made even easier with a smartphone (smile).

I'd love to meet up with any of my fellow bloggers if you plan to be in the area. I'll be in NYC until Monday so feel free to email me at so we can make contact. I pretty much plan to live in the Garment District. I ran across THIS blog that may help direct me to some cool shops. But I plan to probably check most of them out. You never know what little treasures could be there. And of course once I have my fabric fix there's so many other cool places and museums to hit up. I'm looking forward to it!

Anywho, I have to finish my hair, do my little girl's and finish packing. A few loose ends to tie up but not many. My Hubby is a SAINT! He always holds down the "Fort" in my absence and is an excellent, hands-on Dad. He's been encouraging me to take this trip for sometime. So in a few hours I will. Look forward to blogging & talking with you from the big city.....


  1. Excellent news!! I hope you will post pictures and your impressions.
    I wish I lived closer so we could meet up.

  2. Have fun. I feel so sorry already for your financial those cool fabric shops.

  3. Have a wonderful time! Meg has great info on her Garment District blog. Somewhere she has listed the address of Around the World Magazines which opened a store near the garment district. If you want to pick up a La Mia Boutique this is the place.
    A lot of places are not open on Saturday and even fewer on Sunday so I hope that you have some time on Monday to complete your shopping.

  4. Glad you found my site, Shop the Garment District, before you arrived. Have a great time!

  5. I hope you have a wonderful time too! And remember to breathe...there's ALOT of fabric in NYC!

  6. Can I hop a ride in one of your suitcases? ;)
    Have a wonderful time....

  7. Have a great time! I am sure you will enjoy the fabric shopping. Do share what you buy when you get back!

  8. Ohhhhh I'm so excited for you too! Have fun and share all the details when you return!!

  9. I read this a little too late (it's Monday morning and I live in NYC) but have fun here! Post lots of pictures for us. :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment and for following me on my 10,000 Hour Sewing Challenge:)
