Sewing Guide

Sew what? The NY Sewing Resource Guide will help you navigate the specialty shops of the Garment District. More than simply needle and thread, our Sewing Guide includes listings for buttons, trim, handbags, jewelry, feathers, beads, ribbons, tailors, pleating, embroidery, silk-screening and more. Whether you are a professional designer, a fashion student, a crafter, an artist or a home sewer, you need the New York Sewing Resource Guide.

Pick up a copy at the Big Button or download the New York Sewing Resource Guide here (PDF).

Get to Know the Garment District by watching our latest Fashion District on Demand video.

The initiative is intended to introduce New Yorkers and tourists alike to one of the city’s hidden treasures: the high-quality bead, button, trim and fabric shops upon which tailors, emerging designers, fashion students, artists and crafters have long relied.
