“A Beary Enjoyable Adventure”
This ongoing adventure began when I was enjoying a deferred leave from teaching in Moncton on February 10, 1999! A “Make a Teddy Bear” six week course was advertised in the Moncton Transcript as being held in a Fabric store in Riverview that I could walk to from my home. Joan MacNair was a very patient teacher! We six students were required to purchase a metre of “fake fur” and a fur shawl on which to learn. I never imagined it would be a hobby that I am still enjoying. My fingers are starting to complain, so I’m not sure how much longer I will be able to make them. There are still coats waiting to be transformed!
