Another gem for sewists in Vancouver is the wonderful fabric store and sewing studio, Spool of Thread. The lovely co-owner Lili and I had exchanged some friendly messages on twitter, and she invited me to visit while I was in town. Lili was every bit as warm and friendly in person, and her shop reflects that.
Spool of Thread is a sewing lounge, so they offer classes, machines, as well as tools and material. I love that these sorts of spaces are popping up more and more in cities now! They are such a warm and perfect environment for learning. Lili and Henry have created a wonderful sewing space. Check out that counter covered in rulers!
And of course they carry our patterns, and use them in classes! Be sure to visit them if you can… they’re conveniently located right near other wonderful artsy/crafty shops, Collage Collage and RubyDog’s Art House. Check out the Spool of Thread website for more info.
