Hi everyone! Just discovered this forum. Neat! My name is Susan Redstreake Geary of BEAR PAWS. I live in northern AL, and have been making bears for over 18 years. I use mostly mohair-but some alpaca. I have one of my teddy bear wreaths featured in the DEC 2005 issue of Teddy Bear Review magazine. I design for the bear magazines, give classes, but don't do many shows anymore because of arthritis. (Just had knee replacement surgery). I have 5 Himalayan cats and 2 dogs.
Any bearmakers in AL?
Hi Susan, WELCOME to the group, really lovely to have you here with us. I guess you mean Alberta by AL? There are quite a few members here from Canada (Heather and Tammy). I was just in Alberta for an amazing holiday this Summer and LOVED it there, especially seeing black bears - WOW I love your bear and kitty in the picture, really charming. I have two cats of my own, I know everyone would love to see a photo of your cats and dogs, lots of animal lovers here
Anyway I just wanted to say hi and look forward to learning lots from your bear making experience.
