Cool Finds: A Dressmaker’s Dream in Mount Vernon


One customer calls Westchester Fabrics “the holy grail of fabrics.”  The Mount Vernon store has been a sewers’ destination for decades.

The store is packed with a gazillion different fabrics, homey customer service and a few colorful characters who have worked there for nearly as long as it’s been around. Westchester Fabrics’ staff know their stuff: tell them what you want to make and they will gladly steer you in the right direction.

It’s that kind of old school cool that keeps customers coming back for more.

  1. I love the fact that I’m finding out about other parts of lower Westchester. So much more interesting to embrace the whole area than sticking to our little villages!
