Crafting Is Cool!

Need help keeping busy over the hot Dubai summer? We're presenting a fun & varied set of classes throughout July & August.

During the regular season, our classes run weekly over several weeks, but during July and August our workshops will take place during one week - very convenient for those of us traveling for part of the summer!

As a special treat, Brother sewing machines will be sponsoring two of our classes, Sewing Zakka Style and Quilting Whirligig. Brother will be providing the fabulous new V7 machines for students to use, a Brother specialist will be on hand to help use the machines, and they will offer a fantastic discount on the machines at the end of the class so that when you fall in love with it you can take it home with you!
