Volunteer Sew-A-Thon

Join Craft Land, Brest Friends and Brother Sewing Machines in supporting breast cancer awareness in Dubai! The Sew-A-Thon takes place for 12 hours each day on Friday October 21st and Saturday October 22nd at Town Center. Craft Land and ARTE artisans will be on hand for the event with surprise "portion of sale" promotions!

Here's how you can help:

Volunteers are needed for to make special cushions and bags for women undergoing breast cancer treatment; the care packs will be distributed via Brest Friends and medical networks in the UAE. We need volunteers who can use a sewing machine, but it's ok if you don't know how...we also need willing hands for cutting, stuffing, finishing etc. So mums who sew can bring along kids (or husbands or friends) who want to help too! And don't worry -- you don't need to sign up for the whole 24 hours - Sign up for as many two-hour shifts as you like!

Supplies and instruction are provided by Craft Land. Sewing machines are being donated for the event by Brother, and will be for sale afterwards with all proceeds being given to Brest Friends.

To volunteer, simply email Jennifer Haack at: or stop in to Craft Land and sign up in person. Sign up today, and encourage friends and family to join in too... All volunteers will get a goody bag for helping out, not to mention the reward of feeling great for helping someone who's going through a tough time!
