takka takka takk.

Cafés full of people staring at their macbook screens are no longer a rarity. If you see somebody sitting in a café by themselves, that person will most likely be engrossed in a magazine or hacking away at the keys of their laptop. Stockholm, Prague, Valencia, Boston - it's all the same!

However, Berlin wouldn't be Berlin if it didn't have a funky concept to cater to everybody's needs. Feel like grabbing a cup of coffee and sewing a dress on the side? No problem. All you need to do is bring the fabric and step into "Stitch 'n' Bitch". Located on Wrangelstraße 80 in Berlin-Kreuzberg, this snug little sewing-café offers its customers access to one of ten sewing machines and a generous work space.

Founded by a Dutch lady named Linda about 3 years ago, "Stitch 'n' Bitch" is popular with all kinds of folks: whether you're letting your creativity flow on a kaftan-style gown or just need to fix a hole in your favourite jeans, everybody's welcome. The experience is currently worth 5€/hour, which seems fair considering the kind advice you will receive from employees at any point in time. Opening hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays, 13:oo - 22:ooh.
