Sewing, knitting and making are great for learning and practicing fine motor skills, hand-to-eye coordination and help children develop life-time problem solving skills.

Why is our motto Create Time?

Because whether they are making a fluffy pompom, a felt kitten or a Christmas decoration, most children (and a lot of adults) love the opportunity to proudly say: “Look what I made!”

We want to Create Time for that to happen…
