Melanie Bell
Founder & CSO (Chief Sewing Officer)

Hello I am Melanie Bell the founder and owner of The Sewing Lounge in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong.

Like many of you, I learned to sew from my mother.  As a teenager I loved making clothes for myself and friends.

After college, I  lost interest in sewing.  I didn’t take it up again for many years until I experienced the world’s first sewing café in Berlin, Germany.

My passion for making things by hand was reborn.  I loved being there and mingling and sharing ideas  with other sewers.

When I returned to Hong Kong, I decided to open Hong Kong’s first sewing lounge and recreate the experience I had in Berlin.

The Sewing Lounge provides sewing machines, sergers and a coverlock machine along with a cutting table, and all the items needed for most sewing projects.
