Hi fellow stitchers,

I know this question has been asked in the past but stores come and go
so I'd like up-to-date info.

I'm going to NYC the week after Easter and would like to browse/shop
at some quality fabric stores.  Designer off-cuts and ends of line,
plus choice of fabrics similar to those found in Britex or Fishman's
for those of you who've had that pleasure - not really looking for low-
end, super budget stuff.  We'll be staying on the Jersey side of the
river (Secaucus), and will have a car, so anything within an hour or
so drive of NYC will also be viable.

Any and all suggestions welcome.

The last time I went to the garment district I took this list with me.

I ran out of energy before I ran out of stores. I found it best to just
walk in and out of shops take a quick look and decide if I wanted to
spend time or not before going on to the next one.There are more stores
in the area than on the list. They just go one after another on 37th
between and 40th street
  If you can avoid driving into Manhattan, do. A car can be a hassle in
the city.

Many thanks Jax, and Juno, both for this blog reference and the
earlier listing.  I have a whole day set aside... ;-D
