How it All Started…
I started collecting artist teddy bears about 15 years ago. Soon I wanted to learn how to make my own bears. I bought a book at my local JoAnn’s Fabrics about teddy bear making. It had lots of photos, but I could not understand it. I really needed someone to actually show me.
I was very fortunate to be able to get to know Jo Martenson, a teddy bear artist who lived fairly close to me. I was so happy when she told me she gave bear-making classes. I took several classes from her and other artists who were in the area and willing to share their techniques with me.
I then started designing my own patterns and selling my bears on eBay, my website, and teddy bear shows.
After doing this for several years, I was asked to teach a teddy bear-making workshop. I found something else that I loved as much as making bears – teaching others to make them! I enjoyed teaching in the Chicago area and on the East Coast.
