Hi, I'm so pleased to have found Teddy Talk. I have loved teddy bears forever, been collecting them for a while and have just started making my own crochet thread bears. I have found so many helpful tips and ideas on here and am amazed at how friendly and helpful you lovely people are. not sure my bears or my photography skills are up to public display yet, hence no avatar but learning all the time thanks to you guys and hope to have something worth sharing soon :lol:
UPDATE! Learned how to resize my photos so now got an avatar!
Hello . . . do you prefer to be called Rachel or Taylor? We are so pleased to have you join our teddy group! We do have so many talented, generous artists that are happy to share their skills and I'm glad that we can be of help to beginning bear makers. Looking forward to seeing your creations.
Hi Rachel and welcome to Teddy Talk I'm still pretty new here myself but have found nothing but very friendly and helpful people here It's a wonderful place for teddy fans,collectors and artists. Im working on my first selfmade teddy...nothing special...but everything starts simple i suppose...looking forward to read more of you
Hi Rachel and a very warm welcome to TT! :rose:
Your avatar bear looks very cute and I would love to see some more bears from your collection (we like to call it a "hug of teddy bears").
I can't give you any advice on making bears (I am "just" a collector), but I do know a bit about photographing bears. So feel free to ask!
Thank you Peterbear. Great to hear from you. Looks like you have some very cute bears in your collection. Thanks for the offer of photography advice, will probably be needing some help. None of my photos ever come out as clear as all the other posts. Have got a digital camera, an ipad and a mobile phone with camera. Been using my ipad mostly as I have no idea how to upload pictures from a digital camera. Have imported them from a memory card on to my previous computer but not sure if its possible onto an ipad. Any tips would be gratefully received.
