The Ronald McDonald House Teddy Bear Banquet and Auction has asked for a donation of one of my bears for their annual auction on October 26. I'm thrilled to be able to donate Gina for this great cause. If any of you live in the area of Albany, NY, you might want to check out this auction.
September 21 - November 22 Once again, Bid4Bears is sponsoring the Autumn Artist Power Event. As with Christmas in July, registered artists will be auctioning one bear each week during this period. This is a great show for both artists and collectors.
September 27 Teddy Bears and Critters Australia (TBACA) is a new guild for those "Down Under." Their first online show will feature many wonderful artists and a wide variety of styles.
February 14, 2009 Teddy Bears and Critters Australia has offered Affiliate Memberships to those from other countries, and Be My Valenine is their first international show. I'll be there along with many, many other artists. TBACA is also using this event as a fund raiser for their "adopted" sun bear, Bobo. Check out Bobo's page and read about these wonderful creatures and how you can help their cause.
I've been designing and creating my own teddy bears for a little less than 3 years, although I've have been involved in some form of creative expression throughout my life. Along with creating one-of-a-kind teddy bears, I enjoy quilting, beading and recently began classes in chain maille. I love them all!
