Fabric Stores in New York

Fabric Store
Are you looking to purchase fabric in New York?  If you are in the city, we would suggest heading into the garment district to locate various textile retailers.  You will find plenty of fabric stores on or near 38th street.  The Garment District, also known as the Garment Center, the Fashion District, or the Fashion Center, is a neighborhood located in the Manhattan borough of New York City.  The dense concentration of fashion relevant businesses give the neighborhood its name.  In this district garmentos can find trim & notions relevant to clothes, footwear, and accessories.  The area contains manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers.  The majority of store fronts are for selling to the trade only.  They don’t typically sell to the general public.  The neighborhood is less than 1 square mile (2.6 km2), and has generally been considered to lie between Fifth Avenue and Ninth Avenue, from 34th to 42nd Streets (in recent years, this range may have shrunk a bit).  If you are not familiar with the city, you may want to aim for 38th street between 7th & 8th Avenue.
