Last night Jo and I went along to the opening of this fabulous space at the back of St Kevin's Arcade in Auckland, opposite Alleluyah cafe. We were treated to sweet sounds by Mermaid & Mariner (I do love a banjo) and sandwiches from Honeytrap, and we got to see the results of months of planning and hard work on the part of local upcycling legend, Sarah Lancaster (you may have seen the Sew Love tent at various festivals over the past couple of summers).
Big on being kind to our planet, fostering community and getting off our computers and phones, Sarah has been dreaming this dream for a long time and it's awesome to see her vision come to life.
The Sew Love pop-up sewing lounge is open from today, and Sarah is also selling a very reasonably-priced range of delectable vintage fabrics and bits and pieces. You can rent a sewing machine for $5 per half hour (with names like Barry & Borris how could you not?) and Sarah also promises workshops coming soon. See you there?
