As a quilter, knitter, and keen stash builder of both fabric and yarn I couldn't resist visiting Purl Soho. Previous trips to this store have always been delightful and this time was no exception.
Spectacular rainbow displays of color, in the way of yarn and fabric, does make you stop and stare. It's hard to choose: "I think I'll take one of each, please ... "
Purl Soho also carries a large range of Liberty of London, Tana Lawn; pretty florals, both classic and seasonal prints.
As well as a great selection of books, magazines, notions (both quilting and knitting), thread, tapes, ribbons ...
... all displayed with attention to color and detail. It does make a difference.
I spent quite some time browsing the store for goodies, and taking photos with permission. The staff were friendly and helpful, knowledgeable, and happy to chat. I think I showed great restraint with my purchases:
Four pieces of Liberty of London, Tana Lawn
Books and Letters from Windham Fabrics
A re-stock of Chicken Wire by Moda
and yardage of a tape measure bias tape which I like to use for packaging.
Purl Soho is readily accessible by subway and is located in one of my favorite neighborhoods of this big city, Soho. Walking the streets of Soho and surrounding area is a great way to explore and discover the quaint cafes, studios, galleries and stores of this neighborhood.
