I love the idea of Sweat Shop (and it's yet another bullet point on my 'reasons to go back to Paris' list). Not unlike a cyber cafe, but with sewing machines instead! So you can go grab a coffee, and sew up that cushion cover you've been meaning to finish.
The sewing machines are just €6 for one hour, or €25 for a day pass with tea and coffee.
There are 10 Singer sewing machines dotted around the cafe, and one communal table. There are also workshops throughout the week. Which is a good thing - I'm rubbish at sewing. Something tells me if I was living in Paris and could pop into Sweat Shop each week, I might get really really good at it.
Sweat Shop is at 13, rue lucian Sampaix, 75010 Paris, M Jaques Bonsergent. You can check out more images over on their blog.
