Mood Fabrics in Los Angeles!

Beanhi | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

FYI

Mood Fabrics opened a location in Los Angeles recently. It’s away from the garment district so traffic and parking is much easier. http://www.moodfabrics.com/contact-us/

I added a printed knit and a fabulous Pucci silk to my stash. ::drool::

    Is this the one used in Project Runway?

      Yes it is. The store is set-up similarly with bolts of fabrics stacked to the ceiling within broad fabric types "silk", "wool" etc.

        I would love to see it, but it is a loooong way from Melbourne Australia.

    YEP! Going to the garment district here is a real issue. I like to ride my bike there. No Parking issues, no meeters to pay. I can hit a lot of stores b4 most people can find a parking spot. And I save all the gas money. One hamburger will bet me there and back. That is cheaper than a gallon of gas.

    Am I the only person who didn't realize that LA had a garment district?

      No, you're not the only person who didn't realize that LA has a garment district; I'm a native Californian with many friends and relatives in the LA area, and this is the first I've heard about it. Thanks to Beanhi for this information!

        Thank you!  I don't feel so ignorant now.  I really only think of NY (in the US) when I think of a garment district and a concentration of designers.

          Philadelphia has a garment district also. It is among the tattoo shops there in the southeast corner (I think) of Philadelphia. It has upholstery fabric shops, home dec shops and all kinds of fabric shops.
          I bought some gorgeous sheer silk there a few years ago. It is perfectly safe to walk around in during the day. Also there is a wonderful cake store there. I took a bus to the district from the convention center and walked around in the district. Lots of fun.

      You're welcome. You've been missing out on "nearly 200 wholesale and retail textile stores selling trim, beading and fabric for apparel, crafts and home decor" all this time.http://www.fashiondistrict.org/show.aspx?mi=2666

        Who knew?
