Well I finally joined this great teddybear forum. I was looking for such one, so I googled and found this one. I have been reading on here for a while now, and now is the time that I really become a member.
I am amazed about the talent  :clap: Gosh what a talent!!!

I am Thea from the Netherlands and new in making teddybears. I do design and sell doll clothes for reborn dolls for a while now. I have since last year my own website up & running. But since spring this year, the teddybear virus really got me.

In March this year I had a two day class at Marjolein Vos from Mickbears. She is a great teacher and her classes are great. A few months later I made my first bear which I called Mr. S.T.R.A.W. Beary. He is living at my mum right now. She loved him so much when she saw him, so I deceided to give him to her.

A couple of weeks ago I made my own teddybear pattern which wasn't easy. The head was too bear_ermm  bear_tongue I start all over again and now it is good. My first teddy is ready right now, but I haven't taken pictures yet.

I am very lucky that I live close to the German border. The great shows they have are not so far away from me. In April I attended Teddybär Total in Rheda-Wiedenbrück and last weekend I was at Euro Teddy in Essen. Both shows are great!!
Wiesbaden will be the next one. That is most far away so we must stay over for a couple of night........well who cares....... :dance:


Here are some pictures of Lizzy, the first bear that I made during my class:





And here some of Mr. S.T.R.A.W. Beary & Co
