NYC Fabric Shopping Tour and Sewing Tour
Our New York Fabric & Trim Shopping Tour is designed specifically for seamstresses, designers, crafters, and quilters who are on the hunt for unique materials for their projects. If you're tired of the "same old, same old" at your local big box craft chain or are frustrated with the limitations associated with ordering fabric over the Internet, this tour is for you!

On the
Fabric & Trim Shopping Tour, you'll discover hidden shops and resources that you might not stumble upon on your own (hint: not everybody in the Garment District has a storefront!) or on a shopping tour with a less experienced guide. Your fabric shopping tour guide is also a professional designer who can easily tell you which store is best for fine silks, which shop sells crazy colored Velcro, who has great zippers, and who'll cover buttons while you wait.

Fabric shopping tour in New York City
The Fabric & Trim Shopping Tour is a hands-on shopping experience, with extended time for browsing and buying in a number of stores in and around the NYC Garment District. We do try to include a bit of neighborhood history and trivia along the way, but shopping is the primary focus of this tour. For those who are interested in a more general overview of the neighborhood (including Project Runway locations, famous fashion landmarks, garment manufacturing history, and brief stops at 2-3 fabric stores) we recommend our Garment District Tour instead.

Private Fabric & Trim Shopping tours start at $225 for a group of 1-4 people and can be tailored to your sewing project or shopping list.

Interested in history, sightseeing, AND hands-on shopping? Let us combine the
Fabric & Trim Shopping and Garment District tour itineraries into one unique experience!
