Kenneth Wynn had us make some bears for him over Christmas. A couple of weeks later, he contacted me telling me he needed one more. He didn’t have any fur left from the original garments so we used some of the extra fur we have to make him one more.
I’m sharing the bear we just made along with a photo of the ones we made before.
Christine Stanley sent me her fur bear that had gotten damaged. She sent this note as well: “Thank you so much for repairing my bear! I’ve had him in my closet. He needs to be given to my son. He was a gift from my mother and I couldn’t part with him at the time. I used to sit next to my grandma in church when she wore this fur coat.”
The bear was missing a face and had some patches of fur that needed replacing. I was able to give him a new face and patch him up for the next generation to love.
Judy Hoover had us make a couple of bears from her fur coat for Christmas. When she received them, she contacted me to see if there was enough left-over fur to make a couple more. There was, so we did.
All the Christmas Packages for 2021 are officially in the mail! Thanks goes out to a group of women in a sewing network that I’m part of for stepping in and helping to stuff and close teddy bears.
I wish everyone a super Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May your holidays be spent in the loving presence of family and friends.
Just sharing a few of the bears we recently sent out. We are in the final week of our Christmas rush. Susan sent us a couple of fur coats to make three lovely bears out of, Carla also sent a couple of different furs and a wedding dress. Laura sent some of her late fathers clothing.
Patricia wanted an animal kingdom from her fur coats. We made four bears, a cat, a kitten, a squirrel and a puppy for her.
