Elliott Berman ~ Have you been lately?

The last time I was at Elliott Berman's was for the PR Little Black Dress Event. There was so much to do and so many people to talk to that I never looked at the fabric. I've been meaning to get back ever since. I got the chance to on Thursday. 

I love the entry way to Elliott Berman...




...which is located at 235 West 35th Street on the 7th Floor.  The hours are Monday through Friday 9am-5pm. Sorry but they aren't open on Saturdays. We asked Eugenia why and she said it's because the building they're located in doesn't open on Saturdays...sad right?!

However, people EB was as wonderful as the last time I'd been...and that was prior to the PR Party.  First, the fabric was amazing as always!



The awesome thing is that they've designed a back room to hold even more fabric!  Peoples, there were awesome pieces from top notch designers housed here...and there was a lot of drooling going on between me and my companions!

I always find the most beautiful pieces of fabric here. This dress and jacket was made from Elliott Berman fabric, as were these cardigans and the Olivia Pope tunic...which are all still in the wardrobe. They have quality fabric that has staying power!

BTW, Bina sent me this picture of her daughter's dress made from the same black and white silk/wool gazaar that I used for the Olivia Pope tunic.


Isn't this beautiful?!

So if you haven't been lately or if you're planning a visit to NYC anytime soon, I highly recommend that you take a trip to Elliott Berman!  But just in case you're not in NYC and won't be visiting, there is always the website.  Starting May 24-26th, they are having a Memorial Day sale.  20% off your entire order by using the code ~ MDAY20.  Or you can become a "friend" of Elliott Berman on Facebook and enter their weekly fabric giveaway.  Loads of ways to experience the wonderfulness that is Elliott Berman!

Of course I didn't leave empty handed...these two pieces followed me home.

I'm not even going to put these on the fabric shelves. If I don't get to both of these this weekend, I will next weekend. I just don't need to add to the fabric multiplication that's presently going on in my sewing room!!!

I hope you'll experience the "magic" of Elliott Berman soon!




...as always more later!

  12. Great choices! I found my way to Elliott Berman's website a few months ago after you linked to it in a previous post, and it's a great place! I was so excited when they had their 50% off sale earlier in the spring, and I got some great wool boucle. I can see why you're a fan!

  13. Love it! Love them! I've been recently, too! I couldn't help but bring something home that also won't be put into storage - directly to the machine, thank you...

  14. I tend to sew EB fabrics without putting them into the closet, in fact I sewed another top yesterday. Love the print rayon jerseys from Europe.

  15. I'm not sure when it'll happen, but I see a fabric run to NYC in my future. It's been quite a while since I treated myself to a trip like that. Time to set up a special account to make sure I'll have enough to do all the things I want to do.
