i finally went to the 10 ft single vintage fabric store in williamsburg (the new fabric store is next to the vintage clothing store with the same name), and it’s textile heaven. they have quilts, wool blankets, fabric of every pattern and style, cloth napkins, hankies, kilims, rugs…. i felt like i had come across a store that was catered specifically to me!

i wonder how many steven alan sample sales i’ve been to over the years?! i remember when i first discovered the store on east 11th street, maybe 10-11 years ago. and when i worked at calvin klein i used to go to the sale at the soho store at 8:30am before work. i would go with my friend sherise and score tops and dresses from milkfed, the sofia coppola clothing line that i loved. and the prices were so cheap!

the sale is still great, and i came home with 4 things i really like. i’m most excited about the pants because i like the fit and they’re super comfy. the sale goes on through the weekend. hours and details here.

there are still a few open spots in the upcoming baby/girl’s tunic and skirt class sewing class with cal patch.

please pass along the info to anyone who might be interested!
