Show and workshops

This Sunday I will be teaching a workshop at my studio in South Perth. I am looking forward to it, the creations are wonderful and it amazes me everytime how different my patterns will turn out with a little bit of imagination.

Thursday next week my bears and I will be heading for the Gold Coast to exhibit at the International Teddy Bear Fair at the Convention Centre, Broadbeach on 11/12 June. This promises to be a great show again and I always love the workshops in the week after the show that Kympatti Studio. This year I will be teaching Icedor and Mungo on 14/15th June, two wonderful bears with lots of techniques to be learned. It is not too late to book a place. Go to my website for furtheer details.

Bears in memory of loved ones

When asked to design and create bears in memory of a beloved grandad I was not at all sure what to do as this is not usually what I do. With guidance by my client we ended up with these lovely bears made from grandad's jackets. What a wonderful thing to do and I am so honoured having been able to make them.

I'm back

I'm back in Perth again. The show at Berwick was great. I really enjoyed catching up with traders, collectors and bearmakers. I just loved, loved, loved my three days in Melbourne!!! Melbourne reminded me of Zurich/Switzerland (where I was born). The hustle and bustle, the trams and all the shops!!!! It was great!!! I sent a SMS home saying: OMG, I'm in heaven: good food, great coffee and shops after shops after shops! No wonder my hubby got a bit worried..... As it turned out I was a good girl and mostly did window-shopping. I even managed to get a new outlet for my bears. The Teddy Bear Shop at Galleria in Melbourne is now selling my bears. I reckon, I deserved a bit of shopping myself. I will definitely go to Melbourne again! Just loved it!
