Fairs!

Please note that I will not be attending the September Hugglets fair this year - instead I will be bringing new bears to the Woburn Abbey fair: "115 Years of Teddy Bears"
More details can be found at the website here

It promises to be a very special day, with many artist and antique bears to see, together with an exhibition of fantastic, and venerable old bears displayed in the setting of The Sculpture Gallery.
My stand can be found in the Long Harness room from which the Sculpture Gallery is accessed.

There will be plenty of new Spring bears, including this pair; "Clover" and "Skye" - both 2.5" standing.
I'm really looking forward to being back in the hustle and bustle of such an exciting bear fair!
See you there!  :0)

Many Thanks!

Yesterday I heard that little Joan of Arc received The Peoples' Choice,  Category Winner award in the 2015 EBAAs!  Imagine my utter delight at such lovely news!  :0)

Ever so many Thank yous to everyone who voted for her, and to the judging panel and organisers of these prestigious awards. It's quite put the sunshine back in to this blustery, grey November!

Excellence in Bear Artistry Awards 2015

I was very excited to hear that my entry in the Miniature Dressed Bear under 3.75" category, has received a Judges' Choice Award!



My little 2.6" tall piece; "Joan of Arc" was inspired by my youngest son's involvement with a Medieval Society at Edinburgh University where he's currently in his second year studying. Over the summer he constructed his own chainmail coif (like a hood) and vest - and so I decided to make a tiny tribute to this iconic young lady from that period in history.
I well remember "being" Joan whenever we read the George Bernard Shaw play, for our A levels ... (back a few years ago now!) but she was feisty and vulnerable at the same time; which I tried to portray with small pieces of Long Pile Upholstery Velvet, Ultrasuede and a silver lurex net!

If you would like to see the other Judge's Choice Winners, and vote for your favourites, please click the logo to do so, up until 31st October. Sit back and enjoy!

Teddy Bear Artist Event

Nearly time for the 2015 Teddy Bear Artist Event, in Stratford upon Avon*!  I love exhibiting at this show; with its friendly, and communal atmosphere. Once again the show will be supporting The British Heart Foundation, and I will be bringing along a tiny Frivol, with her own bag containing a pretty vintage-print notebook, to be one of the Raffle prizes.

Hoping to see plenty of friends there!  :0)



* The fair opens 11.00am at the Stratford Arthouse (previously named Civic Hall) on sunday, 14th June.
