Hey Brooklynites! Since no one else has started an LTrain Burdastyle Club, I figured I ought to.
Being that we all live in Brooklyn and probably live in apartments smaller than the average person’s garage, I think we should all chip in and rent ourselves a bona fide sewing studio. We could have sewing machines and a cutting table. We could hold classes and workshops. Heck, we could start our own dressmaking-cooperative business. A true communist endeavor!
Ive just started researching work spaces, and it looks like $350-500/mo is typical. If we had, say, ten members, that’s not too bad. I volunteer my services as a sewing instructor, which could lower the monthly cost considerably for all members.
So give me feedback. Is this a crazy idea? Is anyone interested? This is a more the merrier proposition, so get the words out to your friends.
