A friend of mine who is fairly new the crafting game is looking for fabric shops in NYC.  He needs fleece to make the no sew blankets and scarves.  Any shops you can suggest would be greatly appreciated!

 Actually since NYc is the fashion capital of the world you will find TOO MANY  ???dayum fabrick stores in the city. Shocked I say start on 7th avenue in manhattan. They all pretty much span between 39th street till 23rd street. THis is fashion avenue so you will probably do very well in this area. Let me know how it turns out. Grin

There's Pearl in NYC, more of art supplies though.  There is a Jo-Anns on Staten Island, though I've never been there.  

The other option is to commandeer a vehicle and head out to Paramus, NJ to Michaels (I think that's the closest one) and there is a JoAnn's farther up Route 17 in Ramsey.  There's also a JoAnn's Etc. up at the big mall in West Nyack.  

Hope that helps somewhat.

Missplum covered the fabric stores.   Around 7th and 8th Ave from 39th on down.

Good luck!

it's true there isnt an ac moore or michaels anywhere closer than staten island. it depends on what youre looking for however. the pearl on canal is HUGE. i cant image what youd be doing that they wouldnt have what you needed

Fleece is sold in many stores in NYC, not just craft stores.  Rosen and Chadick on 40th Street, between 7th and 8th Aves has plenty of fleece. (Front of the store, on the high shelves)

If he needs a craft store specifically, there is a JoAnn's in Westbury, Long Island, which is an easy commute from Manhattan via the Long Island Railroad. While he's out there, he can eat at the Cheesecake Factory (smile)!

I just stumbled onto this craft store on my way home from Smiley's Yarn Riot (which is still going on at the holiday in on 57th between 9th and 10th...). I needed some E600 glue, and I saw a few crafty things in the window (it was cold, and I wasn't really paying attention) so I ducked in, and it was craft heaven. I wish I had found this place ages ago-- It's called Lee's Art Shop and it's wonderful. It's at 220 west 57th Street between 7th ave and broadway (right near the 57th street n/r/q/w stop).

If you find yourself near Bay Ridge in Brooklyn, it's worth a trip to "Dan Sacks" fabric shop on 3rd ave between 82 + 83 St. They have fleece for $5 yd and lots of cottons for $3 yd. They also have lots of curtain and upholstery fabric too. They're open everyday except Sunday, from 9 - 3:45.

Another chain to check out is Rag Shop -- they're a full line crafts shop, similar to Joann or Michaels, but there are two within NYC...

one right by me in College Point Queens, in the WhitePoint shopping center on 14th Avenue just West of the Whitestone (Van Wyck) expressway.  there's another in boro park, brooklyn supposedly.

Their website is mostly useless but does have a link to their current sales, which includes printable coupons for like 40% off a single item, or 30% off an entire order (good on certain days only)
