Bears in Kettering

I am pleased to say that Sally’s new bear shop in Kettering is doing very well and she has had a lot of success already. My two elephants I sent have already been sold and my bear has been reserved. I have now sent some more bears to her. So if you are in or near Kettering why not pop in and visit the shop. It is called Bear with Me and is in Market Street. Or check out her website

Latest needle felting news

I haven’t blogged the needle felting pictures for quite a while as some of it has been top secret for Christmas pressies etc. But now I can finally show you what these extremely talented ladies have been up to for the last couple of months. We have been making character dolls. I got quite emotional on our last class before Christmas as they have all done so well and I am so proud of them. Some of them still needed a few finishing touches so I took the final pics at our first class back on Thursday. Prepare to be amazed.


Here are a few more pics of the making of them.

Take a close look at Kelly’s man. He is anatomically correct. We did have some laughs……………..


But it wasn’t just character dolls that were being made at the classes. Emma made a fantastic tortoise. The photo really doesn’t do it justice. It is so good. And Mandy finished her pony which I’m sure you will agree looks very good.


So that’s what we have been busy with. What do you think??

Well, Hugglets was a big success as usual. Well done to Glenn and Irene. The organisation was fantastic and everyone had a lovely day. I had my two best friends Maureen and Anita with me for the day, Anita helping behind the stand and Maureen busy taking lots of photos. Thanks, you two, you were both a great support.  It was so nice to meet new collectors and have a chat. Some of my bears, hedgehogs and elephants found new homes and I met the lovely Sally Thomas who is opening a brand new bear shop in Kettering in November and she asked me about selling some of my bears and elephants in her shop. So a few of my creations are now excitedly waiting with her for the grand opening. Good luck Sally….


Hugglets preview

Well I think I am nearly ready for Hugglets. The bears, bunnies, hedgehogs and elephants are ready to go. My stall is planned, and lots of business cards printed. Very soon the bears will be added to my bears for adoption page so you can get more details. If any of you want a lovely day out on Sunday 8th September why not treat yourself to a day in London at Kensington Town Hall for the Hugglets Teddies 2013 festival. Come and meet the bears and have a hug. I will be in Hall 1, Stand 30. For more details pop along to the Hugglets website

But here are some of the bears etc I will be taking with me

Hope to see you there

A busy couple of months

I would like to apologise for my lack of blogging for the last couple of months. I have been so busy with classes and making bears for Hugglets  that I have not had time to keep on top of my blog. I did however take photos of all the lovely bears that were made at my classes so here they are and they are definitely worth waiting for.  Again, I am so pleased with how they all turned out. Everyone should be so proud of themselves. Well done everyone.


The latest bear making class

We had a very relaxed bear making class this week. Everyone except one had made a bear before on my earlier classes so the pace was good. Everyone had finished by the end of the class even with a very long lunch break. Maureen made us all laugh as Ted (her husband) what a good name!!! had marked in her diary that a new bear was to be born that day. Maureen texted to let him know when “the head was out” Yes!!! she is THAT mad but then so were the rest of us. The Thing About Bears is…… they make you smile and act daft. They seem to speak to you and give you that look that makes you start chattering away to them. But enough of this soppy talk. You must want to see the latest bears. Here they are…..

I’m sure they would love to see your comments…..
