Exploring Soho - Purl Soho, NYC


This is Purl Soho - a 'must visit' destination for most sewists, knitters and crafters visiting Manhattan.  

Maybe you follow their blog The Purl Bee - it's inspirational, packed full of beautiful makes to get your creative juices flowing and their website is equally delicious to drool over.

Magazine photo shoot worthy but, although it's on my doorstep, I only seem to go to the store when crafty friends visit and then I play tourist for the day and drop by with them.  Here're photos from one such visit for you to drool over too.


Purl Soho is open Mon-Fri 12-7 and Sat/Sun 12-6 at 459 Broome Street, Soho, Manhattan (212) 420 8796.  Click through to see classes on offer.


For details of other fabric, yarn, trim and notion stores that I've visited around the world along with the NYC stores I love, exhibitions and events I've attended and wonderful people I've been lucky to meet click the links below or in my sidebar :D

    1. Hi Stephanie, I went back through my pics to see which fabric you meant and I'm pretty sure the fabric you'll be looking for is Citrus by Another Point Of View for Windham Fabrics - I have fabric from that line myself it's such a great basic - Chris :D
