A great turnout for our April Meeting, the sun shone all day and everyone enjoyed working on their bears. Many Thanks must go to Pat for working so hard to give us this workshop, can't wait till we start finishing them at the next meeting.
We were privileged to see so many bears Old and New, Artist and handmade and simply loved. All brought in to Show and Tell, and most of them had a story to tell.
Looking forward to Part 3 of the teddy workshop and we should get to see the finished articles.
See everyone in May.........
Once again a lovely lively gathering, lots of chatter, lots of hard work and lots to show and tell.
Pat very ably led us in starting our mohair teddy making project, really looking forward to seeing the results.
