Visit to Habu Textiles
DH and I took a little trip to New York, to see the xmas lights and stuff, museums, Times Square, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Brooklyn Bridge, great restaurants, blah blah blah.
And Habu Textiles.
First of all, you have to know where you are going before you go looking for Habu Textiles. It’s in the Garment District of Manhattan and if you don’t have the address, you won’t find it.
135 West 29th Street
Walk in like you know what you’re doing, go up to the 8th floor and find door number 804.
It’s worth the effort! Inside is a room full of beautiful and exotic yarn.
so much silk, so little time…
There’s a little brass bell on a pillow if you want someone to come out and help you.
There were a few sample items along the walls, and the only kits already made up were for the Kusha Kusha Scarf. I could not resist these colors:
Fortunately I had looked at the kits on the website and had a couple in mind.
I was a bit overwhelmed but thoroughly enjoyed picking out yarns for my kits. If I was choosing yarn for ‘something’, ‘someday’, I would still be there.
There were some grab bags with a variety of yarns,
I bought this collection of white/cream.
And some glass buttons because they were so pretty
Moving Mud buttons
Since were were in the area…
Could not help feeling like a tourist. There were a bunch of us. Along with the real customers.
I had a project in mind and DH found the perfect (except the price, YIKES!) fabric.
The guy cutting my fabric was as polite as possible, I never even saw him roll his eyes!
Since the fabric was so darned expensive I got a free Mood tote bag!
