We don’t really have a great contemporary sewing shop in DC, so whenever I travel I search out shops that can sell me good garment fabric or interesting embroidery notions. While up in Boston last week, Camille and I stopped by Grey’s Fabric & Notions to have a look at their space. The shop is great – very modern and stocked with indie patterns and great modern embroidery motifs and supplies, too. Their notions were tempting and adorably displayed – both Camille and I want to make our own color-coordinated St. Germain button jars now! And the service couldn’t have been better – the woman behind the counter was so helpful to both of us, giving us space to browse when needed but also jumping in to help out whenever we needed it.
I was in it for the knits and I wasn’t disappointed – they had a great selection of knit fabrics in solids and patterns, including an adorable fox print that I had a really hard time not buying. I contented myself with a bottomweight black knit for yoga pants and an orange and grey thin stripe for a t-shirt, but I could have easily bought a lot more than I did. Grey’s is definitely going on my list to visit again the next time I’m in Boston!
