Cafe Couture

Paris...the place where my dreams live and where the Sweat Shop ladies create and invite you to join them.  I am in love with this cool concept! 

In their own words -

What is SWEAT SHOP?

Less buying – more trying!

Sweat Shop is a "cafe couture", a new creative concept situated near hotspot canal St Martin in Paris. Imagine 10 work stations equipped with 10 SINGER sewing machines and one central communal table. Join one of the 5 courses that are being offered every week and perfect your knitting and sewing skills or meet one of our guest designers in town for an encounter.

Not unlike a cyber cafe, you come whenever you please, rent a state of the art sewing machine by the hour and start sewing.

Welcome to a world of creativity, a place of discovery, of DIY ethics, a piping hot cup of tea and funky furniture. Enjoy organic delicacies courtesy of our New York neighbors at Bob's Juice Bar.

Enter into a serene atmosphere where work and relaxation go hand in hand.
Bored of buying, wearing, throwing away?

Fix that seam, make a dress out of those trousers or even design and create a brand new silhouette.

Sweat Shop is the place where your dreams and projects come alive. And it's here for those wanting to learn, create, transform, practice or recycle in a stress free and well equipped environment.
