Yesterday I walked over to the Garment District in search of corduroy fabric and ending up finding exactly what I was looking for at New York Elegant Fabrics, located on 40th street between 7th and 8th Ave. I've shopped there many times before and can always count on finding a great selection of good quality corduroy in every color I can dream of. Although you will not find bargain basement prices here you will find a very helpful and friendly staff and an incredible selection of fabric. The shop is around 20,000 square feet with two levels and carries everything from cotton shirting to brocade. The first time I came across this shop I was a little intimidated by the "elegant" in the name. I'm glad I was brave enough to venture in because I was pleasantly surprised to find everything I could ever want under one roof with the friendliest owners and staff. As always my experience yesterday left me leaving the store very content. This Thursday I should have some new corduroy purses available in the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Stay tuned!
