Eid Open House at TIES Center For Cross Cultural Dialogue

On the 31st of last month we visited the TIES (Center for Cross Cultural Dialogue), for Eid Ul-Fitr Open House.

It was a gathering for people, to get together and celebrate Eid (irrespective of religion or nationality) and was a wonderful experience; especially since it was a great opportunity to meet people from all over the world!

The Quiz was on the reverse of this flyer and I didn’t win, so I’m guessing I didn’t get it all right. Still I’m going to post pictures here so you guys can help me figure them out.

There was also a clothes stall, which is not mentioned in the flyer. You could purchase any piece of displayed clothing for 5 KD and the proceeds were to go to benefit Gaza. Sister Lynn, who was really kind and patient, was handling this area. She also told me that she teaches sewing at The British School Of Kuwait, which was happy news for me because I was happy to meet another sewer. She had also brought along some of the dresses she made herself and these could also be purchased.

I was also Informed that Sister Lynn takes sewing classes for adults once a week, for which you could contact her. Apparently they teach professional sewing techniques so yeyyy! I have been trying to get in touch with sister Lynn but haven’t been able to get through to her, but as soon as I do get more info, I shall post it here.

We got some posters made from the Calligraphy corner and we also contemplated, on buying a few pieces of art from Tariq Alobaid’s corner. Some of the paintings were really beautiful and we got his card, to get in touch with him later, InshaAllah. You can look for Tariq Alobaid on various social medias:

All in all it was a fun experience. You can visit the TIES website for more information on the work they do and any upcoming events.
