Fabric Directory

Fabric Directory -During my time at the Fashion Institute of Technology, my life revolved around the vibrant heart of the fashion industry – the garment district. This bustling enclave became my second home, a place where creativity and craftsmanship intertwined seamlessly. It was here that I honed my skills and developed a profound appreciation for textiles.

Among the treasures that I unearthed in this urban oasis were my favorite fabric stores. Each store, with its unique offerings and ambiance, became a sanctuary for my creative endeavors.

Here is a list of fabric stores in New York City. Please note that the availability of stores and their details might change over time. It’s always a good idea to verify the current status and details of any store directly from their official website or through direct contact.

I only come here for the dog, just kidding. 3 floors of some of the best sourced material. Best place for swatching fabrics.

Sil Thread

I can describe this place with two words- Candy Store. They have every accessory you might need and even the ones you don’t. Bring extra cash because you will take more than what you need.

The fact that you’ll have to discard all the woven pattern making techniques you’ve learned for the past two years out the window is why 5th semester can be one of the most challenging semesters of them all. Here is where you’ll be shopping here for most of this semester.
