bUsy BuSY buSy...
That has been the order of the day or should I say the week!!!
Last Saturday saw Monica Spicer come down to Tooradin to conduct her "Snuffles" workshop. WOW... absolutely gorgeous... Needless to say everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves and took home the most adorable bunny pincushion ever!!! Although I wasn't quick enough to take photos of the finished masterpieces, you can visit our website to view the full range of photos taken during this workshop...
During the workshop Monica showed us many "tricks of the trade" and openly shared her wealth of knowledge... We watched her mould a little piece of "sculpey" into the cutest little bear companion... The little critter emerged before our eyes in a matter of minutes... Thank you Monica for another great day!!!

Back from The Gold Coast

We are back from sunny Queensland to our gorgeous little shop in Tooradin. The weather down here is perfect....(perfect for bear making that is!)
We had a wonderful time at the Gold Coast International Teddy Fair on the long weekend. A great place to catch up with bear makers, bear friends and bear artists. Now it is time to unpack and ready ourselves for Monica Spicer and Karen Alderson's classes on the weekend. We are finalising our classes schedule for term 3 & 4 and will have everything up on the website in the coming weeks.
Hope to see you soon........

tHe LaTeSt...
Kim had a great day at Broadbeach today and all of us left behind had a great day at Tooradin... although I'm sure the weather must have been a little bit kinder up North. Nevertheless it was a perfect day for sitting around the classroom table sewing with friends... and we did just that!!! During the day Roz gave birth to the most delightful little rabbit who goes by the name of "Lady Mulbeary"... This little cutie, designed by Monica Spicer, is available as a pattern or kit and provides us with an opportunity to dig deep into our stash of laces, trinkets and all things yummy to adorn her. Roz chose a cranberry coloured mohair for her skin and a vintage rose fabric for her inner ears and footpads. Well done Roz, she is adorable...
