Dubai is home to some of the most talented knitters, cross stitch artists and embroiderers, whose skills are ably demonstrated in the uniqueness and beauty of their work. Over the years, Brother has developed and released sewing machines and other sewing tools that can help these craftsmen in their creations. This is why we are sponsoring this year's Quilt and Stitch Art 2013,' we want to help give these local artists the proper exposure and support that they need while also showing the wide talent pool that the Middle East region, the UAE in particular, represents, concluded Soichi Murakami, Managing Director, BROTHER INTERNATIONAL (GULF) FZE.
