The Sew Love Lounge is open!

Something amazing has happened. The wonderful Sarah Lancaster of Sew Love Tea Do has opened a pop-up space, the Sew Love Lounge, in St Kevin's Arcade. 

Sarah has a big love of reusing, refashioning and bringing communities together, and the Sew Love Lounge is a beautiful combination of all of this. Auckland now has a great craft space for people to drop-in, rent a sewing machine for $5 per half hour and fix, mend and create. Safe to say I will be pretty much moving in.

I was extremely privileged to go along to the opening celebrations yesterday evening with Ellie and have a sneaky peak at the beautiful space.

There are notions, saved fabric, beautiful hand-made clothing and gifts for sale - just what you need to re-fashion something old into something new.

The philosophy of Sew love is pretty simple, be grateful, share and be kind to our planet.

Congratulations Sarah! A space like this has been missing from the Auckland craft scene for so long, and I'm sure the Sew Love Lounge will be a massive success. I can't wait for you to schedule some workshops - I need some sewing tips!

 The Sew Love Lounge is open seven days in St Kevin's Arcade, K Road, 10am-6pm weekdays and 10am-4pm weekends. Check out the Facebook page to find out about workshops and other cool stuff going on!


  1. Just stumbled across your blog, it's so nice to find fellow New Zealand knitters. I had heard about the Sew Love Lounge recently, seems like a really smart concept to promote handmade clothing and mending instead of chucking things out, we need something like this in Dunedin.

    1. Thank you! It's such a great space - I spent Sunday morning there learning to blind-hem a dress and drinking coffee!
