What a great, supportive community. I am very happy to have found you..
I am a beginner. I am taking classes with 'ShazBears' and I am making my FIRST teddy.
There is a lot to be learned.

Bye for now.

Welcome Paula, good luck with your first bear. I remember making my first bear  bear_grin  can't stop at just one.  This is a great place to learn lots, and don't be afraid to ask questions.

big hugs

Hi Paula from DonwUnder,

A very warm welcome to TT.  bear_flower

You will find lots of advice and tips here and everyone is really helpful and supportive.
So don't be shy to ask lots of question and show off your first bears; every artist has started by making a first bear and I think most of them were not very satisfied with it.  bear_grin
And don't be put off by the amazing work of all the talented artists; some of them have been making bears for years and years.  bear_wacko

Hugs,  :hug:

Welcome to Teddy Talk, Paula . . . so glad you found us and I assure you, addiction is just around the corner.  It's good to know that there are new bear artists being 'born' every day - the comfort value of the teddy will live forever.
