A sewing shop (in Barcelona).

As my urges for being crafty incessantly increase, I have been looking for somewhere in Paris where I could learn how to sew, knit and crochet. I have stumbled upon a couple of places but nothing like this shop in Barcelona. Founded by three mothers from Spain, Argentina and Japan, Costura is a place to learn how to sew. You can rent professional sewing machines, buy DIY kits, or attend workshops where the staff will teach you how to use patterns for making clothes for your kids (2-7 years). Costura also offers unique fabric and craft supplies from around the world. And if you don't have time to do the sewing yourself, you can choose any pattern, fabric and accessory and they'll make it for you. How amazing is that? Maybe I should start thinking of opening a similar place in Paris!

  1. Que legal esse ateliê! Pena que eu nao moro em Barcelona... Quero muito aprender a costurar de verdade, mas não estáo fácil encontrar alguém para me ensinar. Outro dia achei na internet um anúncio, liguei lá e a senhora que ensinava tinha morrido... acredita?

  2. Wow. Have you been to Barcelona? I'm going next month and need some tips on places to shop, eat etc.

    Happy weekend. Today we have sunshine...can you believe it?
