A couple of weeks ago, The New York Times ran a story about Medel Goldberg Fabrics, a fabric store on the lower east side that has been run by the same family for four generations. The store specializes in luxury fabrics, such as the pearl beaded lace pictured above, that can cost as much as $1,600 a yard. The article is accompanied by a slide show of lovely photographs that left me momentarily daydreaming about being a long lost Goldberg and dividing my time between fabric finding missions abroad and sewing in a cramped corner of my great-great-great grandfather's shop. Honestly, I think that is the only way I would ever slice into a $1,600/yd piece of fabric.
Actually, even if I were to acquire such a valuable piece of material, I could see myself being so obsessed with finding the "perfect" project for it that I never actually use it! How about you? Do you have any fabric that you are hesitant to cut into?
