Wayneston Bears Make a Bear Workshop – 14 & 21 December

We are very pleased to have 2 passionate ladies attending the Make a Bear/Bunny Workshop! This time we have a pink bear and bunny coming alive!

 A novice bear maker, Suling, signed up for the Make a Bunny Workshop this time. I was very glad to share more techniques with her since she already knew most of the basics about bear making.

Bear making isn't new to Suling as this was her 5th time making one. I am very happy to know her. She is a very humble lady, and I can sense her enthusiasm in this craft. After knowing her background, I have modified the course to aid her on areas which she wanted to improve on.

Despite attending some classes before, she pointed out that some of the processes were unclear, hence she needed this refresher course.I have seen her stitches and was certain that sewing is not a problem for her. I guided her through the course to complete her very first bunny with wire inside the ears which allowed them to bend. She was very satisfied with the bunny and I am glad to know that I have helped her to better understand the step by step process to complete a bear.

Mary-Ann is back after a long business trip. Her bear turns out well too! She is a very patient lady, every of her stitches were neat and firm, and she understood each step to complete the task.

Mary-Ann's First Bear
 After completing her first bear, she gave her bear some shadings around the eyes, ears and nose to enhance the facial features. To accessorise their bear, Suling gave her bunny a handmade tacted flower and Mary-Ann gave her bear a ruffles.

Mary-Ann and her first bear! Well Done! :)

Suling is very happy to make her first bunny!
I am very lucky to have them in the class as despite of the small group, we could still have fun creating a bear from scratch.

We hope to see Suling and Mary-Ann again in the Make a Bear workshop! Merry Christmas!

Hugs, Wayne

We had an unforgettable evening on 20 December with the Singapore Teddy Bear Lovers group.

 This is our first time organizing a Xmas Teddy Bear Gathering and was pleased to see 8 Teddy Bear Enthusiasts turning up for the event! We have Korean style dinner at Bibigo! Suntec City and later enjoyed some drinks at an ice-cream parlor next to the restaurant.


The 8 Teddy Bear Enthusiasts namely, Esther, Philip, Anna, Marcia, Evelyn, Suling, Paula and myself were excited about the gift exchange. This year, we have set a theme for the gift – that is “something related to Teddy Bears” and a price range was given to everyone to prepare the gift.

The gifts were laid on the table with numbers labelled. With the help of Philip’s tablet, we used an app to generate random numbers for each participants.

 Below are the prizes which each of us have won.

Marcia won a large piece of Faux Fur from Wayne.
Esther won 2 bags of Bear Supplies from Anna.
Philip won a handmade scrapped booked photo frame and a Special Prize from Esther!
Wayne won a Teddy Bear Night Light from Evelyn.

Suling won a Teddy Bear in Biscuit Tin from Marcia.
Evelyn won a Teddy Bear Supply bag from Esther.
Anna won a Teddy Bear Porcelain Coin Bank from Paula.
Paula won a Teddy Bear in a Mug from Philip.
After the gift exchange, everyone began showing off their bears and dolls collection to everyone. Soon, the table was occupied with an Army of Teddies.

We want to thank Esther, Philip, Anna, Marcia, Evelyn, Suling, Paula for joining our Xmas event, we look forward to see you all again soon in the next gathering in February 2014!
Hugs, Wayne
