Have you checked out the block of East. 15th Avenue between Kingsway and Fraser Street lately? If not, you really need to head over there! Awesome shops such as Collage Collage, RubyDog's Art House and Les Faux Bourgeois have called this strip of Vancouver home for almost a year and now, they are joined by a new kid on the block, Spool of Thread Sewing Lounge.
Spool of Thread is Vancouver's first sewing lounge! What is a Sewing Lounge, you ask? Well, in the words of owner Lili and Henry: Spool of Thread is a modern twist on making. Our retail store will provide the tools and the space you need to create your next sewing project. We will also have a wide selection of unique and hard to find fabrics. Our store will have sewing machines available for pay-by-the-hour rental during our store hours. Along with the sewing machines, sewers will have access to large cutting tables, irons, dress forms and other sewing accessories. The store’s Sewing Lounge will also be used for sewing workshops and classes with instruction from crafters and sewing experts.
