More trims in another shop.
The collection of beaded fringe was so colorful, I had to photograph it.
These are the trims I purchased with crazy quilting in mind.
I bought some fabric to make a vest. The shop I found this paisley fabric did not have prices on their fabric. When I asked the price....$10 a yard. When I buy fabric locally, it is carefully measured and then cut straight on a flat table. In this store, the salesman laid the fabric next to a yard stick and cut the fabric with scissors with one end of the bolt on the floor. The price when I checked out....$10. No sales tax????
I bought this fabric in another shop. I want to test the vest pattern before making a crazy quilt vest. Again I had to ask the price...$10. This time the salesman didn't even measure, just held the fabric out an arm's length and cut the fabric in the aisle. When I looked a little questioning about the length, he showed me that I had more than a yard, using a yardstick that was on top of some fabric. Well, one end was over a yard but the other end was a lot shorter. Again when I checked out the cost was exactly $10, no tax?
On Saturday, Ang and I went to the Museum of Arts and Design. They would not allow photos so all I have is a picture of the pin that came with the entrance fee. We saw a lot of detailed paper art. Part of Madeleine Albright's pin collection was on display. I thought I have a lot of pins but she had 200 in the display. I read she wore different pins depending on where and whom she was meeting with. The pin display drew a large crowd.
I had a great time in NYC and I'm happy I got to help Ang shop for her wedding dress.
