sweat shop café, paris




have you heard? the sweat shop café has opened in paris, a place where you sip your tea and rent a sewing machine by the hour (and for 6 euro an hour, that's not a bad price either). not only does the place look gorgeous, it also offers workshops on all things craft-related. plus, the café was opened, and is run, by two friends, martena duss and sissi holleis. i so love that idea!

p.s.: it looks as if i eyafjallajökull lets me go to london after all. so excited...
