Winter in New York City has cast quite a cool spell on us all today, gently nudging us to grab a blankie and a cup of hot chocolate, while we dream of Spring. Today is a particularly busy day in the garment district, with both the Texworld show and FIT City Sourcing events taking place. For any established, aspiring, and small designers among you, the opportunities to learn and greet today are virtually endless. For the curious creatives among you, passionately sewing things for yourselves, your families, and your clients/friends, there are secret doors to be opened, and this ever-changing wonderland of fabrics, notions, and supplies awaits you. For anyone at any level of sewing and design, come along on a "Speakeasy" tour, shopping, brainstorming, and hanging out with people who share your passion!
10AM - 2PM -
Shopping (Will include several very special fabric and trimming stores with a wide variety of offerings suitable for many different purposes/types of garments.)
Lunch (included in your fee)
3PM - until end of business day
Armed with your "Secret Map" and your own interest in or desire to visit the many other stores you see or have learned about, you may visit more garment district stores if you wish, and give unique codes (that you'll get from me) to vendors who will give special assistance/discounts.
The cost of this guided, efficient tour is $75 per person. If you use this trip to shop and participate in what NYC has to offer, you will save at least as much as you are paying, and probably far more.

The trip will involve a good amount of walking, so come prepared, and healthy. These are the dates for all remaining Garment District Speakeasy Tours:
