NYC Fabric and Notions Paron, Steinlauf & Stoller, Pacific Trimmings
From Paron, I was able to achieve color matching for the floral silk satin in the stash,
and I found a coordinating fabric for another silk.
both of these fabrics were in the Annex. Since I came with the fabrics I was working on, I pulled out the full cuts and walked around with Mercedes (my hostess), and we pulled out bolts. She was very helpful and had creative disagreements about some of the colors but it was all in good fun.
They were out of Burda Magazine, so no luck there.
Onto Steinlauf & Stoller...
2" Ban Roll, tailor's thimble, French Curve, 1" plush elastic, plush underwire casing.
I wanted to pick up the Wing needles here but they didn't have them, this has been on my list for over a year now, I have never seen one on sale in person. There's an ebay source which I may try when I'm ready to do some hemstitching.
They have practically everything for the industry in here, and it's a busy shop, but it would be best to take a look at their online catalog and make up your list. They have very little on display, so you need to ask them, and off they run to the back. I did manage to see unwire chaneling and plush elastic which I left with.
Petersham Ribbon & Grosgrain (this should tie me over for a while)
Zippers.... with polished chrome, copper, multicolor, gold finishes, fine teeth, fabulous sliders and ombre tape. I was actually sorry that I didn't have more projects requiring zippers, so I just dipped my toe in with 3.
So I finally have an assortment of buckles for the jacket that has been patiently waiting. Zippers to give me inspiration, and zipper pulls.
A parting shot of the RIRI zipper...
Tomorrow a mini slideshow including food :)
