I took the train to NYC this past weekend and enjoyed time with my two older children and managed to find time for my two favorite craft shops--Mokuba and Purl Soho.
Mokuba is a Japanese trim shop in the Garment District with every kind of trim I would ever want. Amazing and overwhelming. Not an ugly trim in the entire store. You need a business card to shop and although the retail prices are in line with the quality, you can also buy wholesale (I think 30 yards or more).
Purl Soho is a landmark for every crafter that travels to NYC, the sweetest collection of yarns, fabrics and embroidery supplies. A crowded small piece of crafter's heaven in NYC.
I did not leave either store empty handed.
