Join us at our next Tea Party on Saturday the 27th October from 9am – 11.30am for a fun morning of meeting bearmakers and sharing ideas.


This group of enthusiastic bearmakers joined us at our last Tea Party and most of them rose to the invitation of bringing one of their bears along for Show and Tell. It's always rewarding for us to see their bears and, of course, a real inspiration to others. Thanks, ladies!

After a brief demo by Di on how one can creatively use wire and pipe cleaners in bearmaking, they were all given a 'Goody Bag', and promptly challenged to create something by using or adding to its contents, incorporating the tips they'd picked up from the talk. We're looking forward to seeing the results in October... and we know that some of them are already all fired up about getting their challenge done in time!


The Lucky Draw prize of Teddytech's
Marissa Mouse kit was won by Val.

So where was Hopkin Hare?

Hopkin HareHopkin tells us he disappeared temporarily as he had high hopes of joining the SA athletes at the Olympics. According to him, he was quite capable and more than agile enough to enter the long jump but after careful consideration knew he would not have been able to bend the stringent admission rules. Moreover, he thinks he would definitely have had an advantage over the other athletes and would easily have won the top medal. Cheeky fellow! Well, we're busy sprucing him up for his grand appearance next week — so stay tuned!

Beary kind regards

Eunice & Di
