Spool of Thread - Vancouver's Sewing Lounge

Vancouver crafters have something to celebrate! Spool of Thread is finally opening!

After a few months of teasing (and a ton of hard work!), the shop is all set up, with the Grand Opening happening this Saturday.

Grand Opening of Spool of Thread Sewing Lounge!
Saturday, June 5th
11am - 6pm
649 East 15th Ave, #101 (at the Fraser/Kingsway triangle)
Treats and giveaways throughout the day!

Spool of Thread is a sewing lounge, offering classes (here's a PDF schedule for their June workshops), as well as drop-in sewing time, where you can use the machines in the shop. They'll also be selling some lovely fabrics.

The concept reminds me of The Workroom in Toronto. I'm glad Vancouver now has something similar!

You can read an article about Spool of Thread on Yoyomama.ca, and get a sneak peek of the shop on the lovely Rachel's blog. LOOOVE the front counter which is covered in vintage yardsticks!!

Keep up with Spool of Thread on their website or on Twitter.

I can't wait for the grand opening of Spool of Thread! I heard about them back in January and have been chomping at the bit, excited to go there, ever since!

Lili and Henry are great and have kindly offered to host the first meeting of the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild at Spool of Thread on June 17th.
