Enter the tienda Costura. While perusing NotCot recently, I was led to an article written by Vera at Sticky Fingers BCN all about this unique shop. Born out of the desire to open a shop that supplied all manner of sewing supplies, two friends Asami and Sonia also decided to rent machines by the hour. Customers can pay to use a room where they can spread out and create, without being held back by space limitations. Also offering workshops to aid those wanting to hone their craft, Costura became a place to go where you can sew away as if you had the luxury of your own creative studio.
Aside from the practicality of this whole idea, Costura is also a beautiful space dotted with vintage machines and accessories, as well as tons of adorable crafty geekery. I would love to go in just to gather some inspiration!
I love this idea, and am sure there are many other places around the world like this. Now, to find creative studios for rent here in Austin! Any hints?
