NYC Garment District - Smocking Guild Field Trip

This was one of the trim stores -- millions of yards and thousands of types of ribbons and trims - just amazing!!!
I LOVE this giant button on one of the street corners in the fashion district!

Smocking Patterns and Magazines On Etsy

I am doing some spring cleaning, and have cleaned out some of my smocked patterns and AS&E magazines. I have listed them for sale in my Etsy shop at

I'm certainly not going to stop smocking - just going to stick to smocking for dolls and a few baby gifts for a while. I also have some duplicate back issues of Sew Beautiful for sale if anyone is interested.
