You probably can't know how much it means to hear such things, all.  Really, thank you for taking the time to share that sentiment.  It means the world to those of us who caretake Teddy Talk.  And to all the members who've shared so much wonderful content, it's the thanks and praise they well and truly deserve for their contributions -- the very stuff that makes TT what it's become today, namely a great source of information for bearmakers.

You're so appreciated.   bear_flower  bear_flower  bear_flower

Anita, I agree with you completely. I hope I've expressed my gratitude before, but in case I haven't, let me say that I, too, have read and learned from many posts in the Library and appreciate everyone's willingness to share ideas and techniques.

I echo Shelli's post . . . the members of TT are certainly appreciated.  It is YOU who are very generous with your
tips, suggestions, answers to questions, general friendliness, and great compassion.  We are, indeed, a big, international family.   bear_wub  bear_wub  bear_wub  bear_wub

From an international member (Australia), I must say how much Teddy Talk makes us ladies feel a part of the "bigger" teddy bear community.  Sometimes you feel quite isolated way over the water with your craft, but TT gives us the opportunity to make beary friends all over the globe, access the most helpful and valuable information and more importantly, feel part of the world "bear" community.

It is a continuity with contact via this board that I don't think we would be able to get any other way, so a big thank you to Intercal for hosting it.  Also an enormous thank you to all the artists who have contributed their wealth of knowledge in the TT library.  It is an invaluable source of inspiration and help that has enable lots of us to continue and improve our craft.  I think artists who are willing to share their techniques and advice are just wonderful.

TT is great for non-artists too!  I'm not looking for info on how to make bears, but I've learned a lot more about what it's like to be an artist.  And it's a lot of fun getting to know artists that make bears that I love.  And when I see the TOBY and Golden Teddy nominees, now I know many of them.  I'm excited to see TTers nominated.   :hug:

I do have a big problem with TT though.  It's made my bear wish list too long!!!   bear_original

It is really great here. I learn new stuff all the time and if I can't find an old post about something, I know if I ask, someone, usually several people are more that willing to help, give advice, etc...
