April 6-8, 2013: NYC Garment District Trip

Visit the New York City Garment District with Artisan Sewing Classes



If you have ever wanted to go to New York to shop for fabric, now is the time.

Genevieve has been traveling to NYC for over two decades to buy fabric for clients and for her bridal business. She will share her resources, which include the places to shop for fabrics, notions, trims and supplies. You will be able to visit famous name stores, but the list also includes lesser known, yet reasonably priced resources.

The trip also includes an optional tour – at no extra charge – of a 4th generation family owned fabric flower factory.  If culture is your thing – the number of museums, restaurants and tourist attractions abound, not to mention the theater.  If you like, bring a family member or friend along, there will be time to get to know your surroundings and sight-see.

Getting into and around the city is very easy and by using this trip as a learning tool, you will be able to make trips on your own to New York with ease and confidence in the future.

The cost of the trip includes travel to and from NYC by train originating in Lynchburg, VA and two nights stay (room for 4) in NYC at the Radisson Martinique near Macy’s at Herald Square.  Extras on your own.  More extensive trip details after you register and if there is anything specific you are looking for, please let Genevieve know in order to provide you with the best possible experience.

Date: April 6-8, 2013

Time:  Train leaves Lynchburg at 9:59 AM on April 6th and arrives back at 8:36 on the 8th.  Please plan to get to the Lynchburg station by 9:30 AM on the 6th.

The cost of the trip includes travel to and from NYC by train originating in Lynchburg, VA and two nights stay (room for 4) in NYC.  If you are not from the Roanoke area and would like to meet us in New York or if you desire a room for 1, 2 or 3 people, please call or email for a price adjustment.
