The Naaicafe is located at the Hoogstraat in Rotterdam, between other creative shops such as Van Beek art supplies, and close to the market at Blaak where you can buy your cheap fabrics on Saturday ;)
The reason why I continued sewing after taking a basic sewing course is probably all thanks to the owner Caroline Vogel. She set up a great concept here, and she is full of inspiration, advice and experience. The shop is very colourful, with fabrics for sale or on display in example projects. The atmosphere is excellent which makes it also a nice stop during a shopping trip in Rotterdam, even if you are not sewing. The cafe offers several courses for beginners or more advanced sewers, or you can just stop by and use a sewing machine yourself. When you are taking a course, you also get to experience the great lunch offers from the cafe, all organic. The great food alone is sometimes for me a reason to spend the afternoon here.
