Sewing Cafe in Paris

A new cafe has opened in Paris called the Sweat Shop (!) where you can have a cup of coffee, a piece of cake and a 'spin' on a sewing machine (at 6 euros an hr). It's near the Saint Martin Canal in the north-eastern corner of Paris - if you wanted to visit. It seems at the moment that mostly fashion students are using this cafe, and ordinary citizens have been a little reluctant to try it out.

I think it's basically a great idea and hope it takes off and maybe takes on over here in the UK.
(note les knitty cupcakes.)

Sounds interesting Shirley. Lets hope it comes over here. I like the sound of the coffee and cake.
