A couple of weeks ago I met up for the first time with Sarah Craig from Confessions Of A Fabric Addict when she was on a trip to Manhattan. We spoken via the internet for several years, I love her blog and the charity quilt work she does is amazing. I'm a regular at her Friday Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? linky party and it was great to finally meet in person.
I met up with another blogging quilty friend again this week too - Jess @QuiltyHabit. She was in town on a flying day visit with her sister so the three of us had coffee in Bryant Park.
I digress... when I knew Sarah was going to be in town and interested in hitting the fabric stores I drew up a walking tour for her, meeting her at the lunch spot I recommended and joining her for her afternoon walk down to Purl Soho.
It would be churlish to drop into Purl Soho without taking yet more drool-worthy photos and I'd hate to disappoint so here they are - I concentrated on yarn more than fabric this visit but you'll soon get the picture and fabric lovers won't be totally disappointed ;D
