Hi to you  all, im just new on TT and read alot  abouth tips and techniques, i got a feeling i wil connect more often here.
I made teddy bears when i was younger, all  kind of bears and soft toys.
Now i started a new life and want pick it up again with my old patterns and hopefully with more brains and exsperiance in sewing and technics over all those years i hope i can call myself a bear artist/creator/maker or just mum  later.
I wont rush  , i wont force, i wil not be in a hurry , i only know i  love to make bears and when i feel  enough comfort i wil get  exspansive fabric and hopefully by than i can add my  own tag to  it to  bear_original

Hi everyone

I have visited your fantastic forum library many times for tips and techniques and thought about joining but just never got around to it somehow until now!

I 'dabbled' in bearmaking many years ago and enjoyed selling my creations at fairs and through a local shop. As so often happens, family life took over and I stopped making apart from the odd gift. About a year or so ago I came across my mohair stash in an underbed storage box gathering a thick layer of dust. Looking at all the fabulous artist bears available and how the techniques and quality had changed so dramatically over the years was pretty daunting I have to say, but also exilerating - so many new ideas!! So I took the plunge and am enjoying creating again. I still have limited time as I work too but my children are grown teenagers and fend for themselves most of the time (apart from lifts here and there, of course) but any free time I have is spent in the blissful abandon of creativity. My long suffering family look on this as 'complete furry chaos' as I take over the lounge and sometimes, I admit, I do loose pins/needles/stuffing sticks etc. down the side of the settee to be found by the next unfortunate person to sit there.....and yes mohair fibres are deeply attracted to my daughter's favourite pair of black jeans - I did briefy try to blame our cats - but to date we don't own a blue cat so that one didn't really work . .

Looking forward to chatting with other like minded teddy bear lovers and developing my skills as an artist along the way!
