Hi. I’m Renée, the crafts intern, and a few weeks ago I visited some really great places in the city to pick up a few things for the Crafts Dept.  The first place was the flower market on 28th Street,  between 6th and 7th Avenues, in Chelsea. It's a street lined with florists and floral supplies. Next, I stopped by Elegant Fabric at 222 West 40th Street in the Garment District.  This two-story fabric store is a treat for fashion and craft enthusiasts.

I loved walking into stores and being greeted by the fresh smell and vibrant colors of the flowers.

I couldn't leave empty handed, so I bought a bouquet of sunflowers to brighten up the crafts dept.

Elegant carries a huge selection of fabrics, from ultra suede to faux fur to brocades.

My favorite part of Elegant is their precut fabric samples.  I collected some beautiful swatches for a future craft project.
