Joyce Trimmings in the Garment District

Joyce Trimmings is located at 109 West 38th Street which is two blocks from my job. Now I've visited this shop years ago but I barely remembered it since Daytona Trimming and Pacific Trimmings are my go-to trim stores. Gawd, can you imagine how that shows up in Google searches!  Sorry peeps just sewing going on here and nuthin' else! *LOL*

For a shop that's right around the corner from me, you would think that I'd have explored this awhile ago...but no I stuck with my favorites...even visiting M&J Trims which is NOT a favorite of mine. But when I was looking for navy blue lace my favorites and M&J Trim had nothing that I was looking for so I stopped in here.

First can I say that this store is well lit and well stocked. They have everything you need to embellish a garment or even stitch one together - cause the other day I found sewing supplies. 

They have laces, ribbons, zippers, bridal trims, embellished laces...shew! Buttons, boas, fringes...they have a lot of good stuff! I bought the lace for my Ann Taylor skirt here...the rick rack for my Vogue dress and a couple of other pieces that will go in the notions stash.

However, I'm thrilled to have found a new trim resource and it's so close to me that I will be buying more from them...because even though I have a notions stash, I always think of something new that I need.

I hope the next time you're in the Garment District that you will stop by Joyce Trimmings. I'm sure you will be able to find something you need there!

  1. Must be nice to have all those buttons and trims so close to you. Purchasing buttons here can tend to be a challenge for me in my area most times.

    1. Faye - I would try the website. Also I've read of other sewist purchasing great buttons from Etsy and eBay.

  2. From Creative Hormone Rush: Thanks for sharing this wonderful source. All those irresistables! How can you work so close to the garment district and not go broke from all the temptation? :)

    1. Actually it's quite easy...since you know it's there waiting for you when you need it. Plus I have a well-stocked sewing cave so I only venture in when I need something.

  3. WOW! I've never seen anything like this in my neighbourhood.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing another great online resource! I will definitely be checking it out-I need some black lace trim for a cocktail dress (Vogue 1428-that waistline trim) I'm making it for a friend and I haven't found anything quite "right" yet.

  5. Thanks for the post! Always on the lookout for good trim shops in the garment district. Will certain stop in the next time I head up for some shopping!

    1. You need to come visit even if it's only for a couple of days. We could eat well at night, shop all the good fabric and trim stores and maybe I will even take you to a museum or two!

  7. Two blocks from your office? Damn am I jealous! I've walked past this store and never been in; I'll have to change that in future.

    1. Nancy - you should definitely go in. I couldn't believe it when I walked in how well organized it was, calm and well priced compared to the overpriced offerings at M&J.

  8. Oh my goodness! When I come to your town, I will definitely have to stop by Joyce's.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! It is so appreciated!
