A Sweat Shop In Paris

I love this idea. A Cafe in Paris simply called Sweat Shop Paris that you can pop into and make use of one of their sewing machines etc. To save me typing it all I have stolen their Concept copy for you to read:
sweat shop paris
Sweat Shop is a "cafe couture", a new creative concept situated near hotspot canal St Martin in Paris. Imagine 10 work stations equipped with 10 SINGER sewing machines and one central communal table. Join one of the 5 courses that are being offered every week and perfect your knitting and sewing skills or meet one of our guest designers in town for an encounter.
Not unlike a cyber cafe, you come whenever you please, rent a state of the art sewing machine by the hour and start sewing.
Welcome to a world of creativity, a place of discovery, of DIY ethics, a piping hot cup of tea and funky furniture. Enjoy organic delicacies courtesy of our New York neighbors at Bob's Juice Bar.
Enter into a serene atmosphere where work and relaxation go hand in hand.
Bored of buying, wearing, throwing away?
Fix that seam, make a dress out of those trousers or even design and create a brand new silhouette.
Sweat Shop is the place where your dreams and projects come alive. And it's here for those wanting to learn, create, transform, practice or recycle in a stress free and well equipped environment.

Oh, for one in Bath. I'm learning to sew, but don't want to buy a machine until I know that I'll keep with it. Brilliant.
