What do three SAGA members do when they visit New York City? They visit the garment district of course!

Well one of the three members had a mission-to buy some silk dupioni fabrics for classes she is now teaching, so off to her favourite source the members went. After an hour there was one rolling carry-on cart full of silks being dragged off to lunch.

Of course, lunch had to be at the correct place- so' Stitch' it was!

After lunch the three headed to Fifth Avenue and The American Girl store. Being a Wednesday in term-time, the store was quiet, making it easy to walk around and find what was wanted. (Who knew that you could take your American Girl doll to the hair salon for restyling?).

Purchases made the group then headed for a pick-me-up cup of tea at Starbucks on Madison Avenue before walking back to Grand Central station and catching the train back to Connecticut.

Some of the days purchases
All in all a successful day out-silk purchased; doll accessories acquired; fun with friends; weather 70 degrees and sunny-what could have been better?
