dear fellow ted lovers, I am new to both sewing and computers so please excuse any mistakes in the same way as my hubby does she's bonkers (bi polar) anyway so it doesnt really matter . would it be possible for one to make a bear with felt and glue....I used to sew 30 odd years ago I don't mind a bit of hand sewing, but sewing machines are out of my league. MarcieX
Hey everybody! It gets dark pretty early now (4.30pm) and there just arnt enough hours in the day to sew my teds! Ive tried putting all the lights on in the room, and a lamp on the table, but my eyes still strain. I dont use a sewing machine so everything has to be done by hand.
Do you have any suggestions for good lighting? Thankees
hi heather, sorry, no light suggestions, do I really really have to have a sewing machine?
thanks for all the comments, I have finally persuaded
hubby to get me a steiff ice bear!I seem to have stopped buying jewelery and started buying lots of bears instead. Bears are more fun! Marciexx
You are so right, Marcie! :thumbsup:
Are these three beauties all Charlie Bears? I'm quite sure Catherine and Kipling are, but I am not too sure about Chockie.
I also have several Charlie Bears in my hug (mostly from previous years). Did you know that they have a collector's club as well?
...anyone know anything more about the Charlie Bear Club? mx
Marcie, I saw your post about the Steiff ice bear. I'm not familiar with the bear, but I wanted to share this supplier's website. They take their own photos, so it's another way to judge from afar in addition to the Steiff catalog picture: http://www.two4toys.com/catalog/index.php
You can also search on ebay for listings where people have photographed the actual bear in the fur.
Hi Becky, thank you so much for the advice! it is too late though, I sulked all day the day before yesterday and hubby finally bowed down to pressure and ordered my beautiful ice bear. I am waiting for the postman now if he doesn't come today (Saturday) I will have to wait until Monday. This bear thing has really got to me Marcie (Princess Marcie of Ilfracombe)
Hi I am a new member, I live with my 8 bears in Ilfracombe and didn't know I was a collector until I bought 2 new teddies and sent off for catherine and Kiplinganother which arrived this morning and I thought maybe I could be a proper collector and subscribe to your club! Marcie xx
These are my most recently acquired bears I do have more teds but they are a bit too old to pose for the camera!
These in the picture are called Chockie, Katherine and Kiplling .
