Visit from Helen

Just had a lovely visit from Helen Gleeson today at the shop, she has left some of her patterns with me including a copy of the lovely Tim Tam that we are making at the workshops in October and December.  I have just completed making one of Monica Spicers lovely patterns with an open mouth and feel very excited about the bears I am making now.  We are running classes at the store on a Thursday night and Wednesday afternoon that have a few places left.

Well things at the shop are going well, we still have some places in our Thursday night Bear class but Friday is full.  We have now had some awesome patterns arrive including wonderful work from The Teddy Tree and Monica Spicer.   I have been having a great time playing with the new patterns and we have a few new creations to look at.   We also have some amazing Alpaca fur and some copic markers .

Outstanding Tutor Award

Tonight I was honored by the Armadale City Council with an Outstanding Tutor award.  I can honestly say it was a total surprise and I felt very touched by the award and the response I had from people.


Introducing  Bucket the latest Cooper Bear ready for adoption.  Bucket is a little bear that has been left in the attic for a long time so now his joints are all wobbly and his coat is dirty and he needs someone to love him.Stay tuned because we also now have wonderful felted bear accessories available at Cottonwool Creations.
