Costuretas Social Club
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Costuretas Social Club opened in 2013, and the sewing machine on their logo says it all. It’s a meeting place for self-taught dressmakers who rent equipment by the hour (there are machines, interlockers, a cutting table and other sewing facilities) and crafty types who come for the specialist workshops, learning new techniques and finishing an original craft project in a single session. The team behind Costuretas, Maite Regué and her daughter Irune, ensure there’s a steady stream of contemporary craft ideas on offer. Some past projects include a crocheted rug, baby slippers, a wool purse and silver ring, as well as multi-day intensive courses. Costuretas has kept the lovely hydraulic tiled floor of the florist’s that once occupied the space, and as well as the workstations, there’s a small kitchen and a tiny garden terrace for clients of all ages. There’s also craft merchandise on sale, with DIY kits from Japideis, fabrics by Nunoia and Ana Cuevas, and bags by Bao and Musa Bamba.
