Fabric Place Basement
Peter Isaacson grew up in the fabric business––literally. As a little boy, he often traded swinging on the monkey bars for playing amid the bolts of fabric and heaps of buttons that filled his grandmother's store. Now, as purveyor of his own textile emporium, he channels generations of fabric and notion know-how to oversee a showroom stocked with more than 10,000 high-quality bolts of quilting cottons, batiks, and flannels. Yards upon yards of real linen, imported wools, faux furs, suede cloths, and genuine leather hides entice everyone from costume designers to historical reenactors, and local fashion designers flock toward colorful swaths of soft velvet and 100% silk that's smoother than a dolphin pickpocketing its trainer. Knitters, meanwhile, find artisan yarns from Malabrigo, Noro, Berroco, Auracania, and Plymouth waiting to become sweaters and scarves, and all shoppers find inspiration from a bevy of sewing notions, trims, and pattern books.
