New knitting patterns

Good news! We now have about a million new knitting patterns!

In addition to the wonderful pattern books we got last month from Lang and Bergere de France, we now also have booklets and individual knitting and crochet patterns from Thomas Ramsden. There are some fab projects for babies, children, women, and men, as well as some fun patterns for handbags and other accessories.

The holiday season's a great time to start a new project -- why not stop in and check out the new patterns and yarns? Knit a scarf for a ski trip, or a little cardi for the chilly Dubai shopping malls. We can help you find the right pattern, and the yarn and needles to knit with.

Remember, we have classes and clinics here! Take a class to learn a new skill, or join us at clinic for a little help or a little company. See our website for details.

Block of the Month update

Wow! Our Block of the Month project with the Dubai Quilters Guild is officially at the halfway mark!

Today we released the 4th pattern, the first photo transfer pattern. It's a cute Camel Crossing photo with a simple pieced background. Now only two blocks remain, plus the corner blocks and the borders; look for these monthly after the New Year.

It's not too late to start making your own Arabia-themed quilt! All the patterns are available in the shop, or by emailing All the fabrics are also available in the shop, and you are welcome to use our photos for the transfers or to use some of your own.

Simple 3-Patch Picnic Quilt
Every month, we also do another quilt for a block raffle with the Dubai Quilters Guild. This month, it's a super-fast Stack'n'Whack quilt using cheery red and blue floral prints. Stop in for your free pattern anytime, and check out all the fabric options. Our quilt is a lap size, but the pattern will also make a crib, twin or queen size quilt. Tackle it on your own or come in to one of our weekly clinics for help, or just for company. Schedule at:

Don't forget, we stock everything a quilter needs! We have cotton fabrics, threads from Madeira and Gutermann, and lots of choices of quilt batting.
