Have a great weekend!

Brave Heart, the centaur was walking through the forest one summer evening.  All of a sudden he stopped, he was sure he heard crying, as though someone was in terrible pain.  He waited until he was sure of the direction the sound was coming from, then set off towards it.  

After a while, he entered a copse and there he found a small, black bear cub, with his leg caught in the teeth of a hunter’s cruel trap.  Quickly, Brave Heart, pulled apart the deadly trap and gently lifted the small cub out of danger.

“What is your name, young cub?” asked Brave Heart. “Micki”, the little bear gently replied through his sobs.

“Where is your family?” asked Brave Heart, as he gently wiped the wound and dressed it with leaves and magical herbs that would heal it.   

Micki told him that the hunter had shot his mother when she was trying to free him from the trap.  “I have no-one” wept Micki.

Brave Heart lifted the cub gently onto his back and told him to hold tight.  Micki sat comfortably on his back and soon fell asleep.

When he woke, Micki realized they had been traveling for a long time.  “Do you need to rest?” Micki asked. Brave Heart smiled at the small cub and replied, “I’m fine, you don’t weigh much and from now on you are my brother, we are a family”.

Micki grinned up at his new friend, rested his head on Brave Heart’s strong back and fell fast asleep again.

Realistic Teddy Bear, Cheese Steak now available for adoption!

Hi everyone!

We are back home now in Singapore from our 1 week trip to USA!

We had a great time at the Susan Quinlan Dolls & Teddy Bear Convention last weekend meeting our artist friends and collectors.

A very special thank you to those who popped by our table to say hi and adopting one of our bears at the show.

We want to share with you today, one of our realistic bears which is now available for adoption on our website. We have decided to name him Cheese Steak because it's the first food item we have tried in Philadelphia and it's yummy!

Lemon Butter Workshops in March

Wayneston Studios had 4 students sign up for the Lemon Butter Workshop in March.

The students were, Violet Yeo, Violet Lim, Wei Tang and Hui Xin.

This was the first time Violet and Hui Xin made a Teddy Bear.  Wei Tang told us that he learnt how to make bears many years ago and he has returned to making them again. It has totally revived his passion for bear making!

Wayne shared with them the importance of observing and identifying the pile and fur direction before cutting and sewing.  He also instructed them on basic stitching techniques to hold 2 pieces of mohair together as well as the way to close the seam opening after stuffing and weighting the bear.

As a bonus, they learnt how to sew a simple felt vest for their bears. 
At the end of the class, all of them proudly took a photo with Wayne and gave their bears a name.

We would like to thank the students for their interest and participation in the class which made it such a success.

We look forward to meeting Violet Yeo, Violet Lim, Wei Tang and Hui Xin again in the near future.
