Based on the same concept as a cyber-café (where you hire machines by the hour), the first sewing-café in Brussels only opened in 2012 and has already been a run-away success. By offering people à la carte sewing, Les Midinettes has managed to rekindle an interest in sewing and revive a forgotten art.

Sewing machines for hire by the hour


I come here to fix the hem on my trousers or the lining on my curtains or skirt. I hire a machine for €10/hr. You can get help from a seamstress for a little extra. If it's your first time in front of a machine, why not book onto a beginner's sewing workshop (6 hrs)? Once this first step is taken, you will be able to join in the two other workshops without any worries, in which you make your own skirt or recreate a favourite item from your wardrobe.

Young designer boutique


The sewing section is the novelty of the shop, but we should also mention the boutique area that sells very pretty items by Belgian designers, amongst others. The prices are really affordable. Les Midinettes also stocks a selection of clothing from Spanish and English stylists... a clothing line created by Isabelle, a Belgian stylist and one of the two founding partners of the business. Addiction guaranteed!

Open Monday and Thursday, 12:00-20:00 Open Tuesday and Wednesday, 11:00-19:00 Open Saturday, 10:00-18:00
