I usually go to fabric shops and we did walk around the fabric district before getting to mood. Mood definitely has better quality and variety, it has something for all budgets.

Mood has been on my bucket list for years, and the store did not disappoint! Even my 9-year-old granddaughter was slack-jawed at the vibrant array of fluff and fiber bursting from every inch of that Garment District real estate. Although I shopped for quite a...More

Being massive fans of Project Runway from the UK, imagine our delight when we walked through the door to find Swatch sprawled on the floor. Once you get over the awkwardness of going into what looks like an office to get to the lifts, the...More

I don't understand why they pile the bolts of fabric on top of each other. There are a bunch of surly-looking dudes hanging around who I suppose can be summoned to do the heavy lifting of extracting a bolt from the log pile for you...More

So exciting to see what this looks like in person. So many bolts of fabric it’s thrilling. Swatch was not there the day, but Chica was. Cool area of the city.

Mood actually is more than just a place they go to on TV. Great service. Very patient and persistent help who knew the inventory and kept trying until he found the color, print, and style that was just what I wanted for my own “project”....More

I've changed things around since my last post. I'm traveling alone in May and my main goals are shopping and photography. I've got some of the touristy things down but I'm saving others for when I return with my husband in the future. I plan on conquering the subway to get around but I want to have a pretty clear plan of attack so that I don't end up just wandering aimlessly. Does it sound doable to you. Monday: arrive late morning. Find my room in Chelsea Head out to explore the...More
