Sorry, sorry, sorry - I haven't blogged for a while - things here have been hectic, preparing for the Woodend Teddy Bear Show next weekend (more about that in a minute), and getting two new designs ready for the AQM (trade show) in November. This means deadlines to meet! I have been sewing up samples and taking photographs. The photos and blurb are then sent to the lovely lady who looks after our website. She is also the designer of our brochure which needs updating to a larger format. Pattern lists need to be altered, newsletters need to be sent out to shops and our online subscribers, and, of course, there's proof reading (several times), preparing and putting together of patterns! All of this on top of filling and sending out orders! Who said a designer's life was a bed of roses!!? But I still love it!
"Honey Bear Hollow" was inspired by the little town of Woodend near the Macedon Ranges in country Victoria. Next weekend, on Sunday 26th. October, The Woodend Teddy Bear Show will be taking place at St. Ambrose Hall, Templeton Street, from 10am - 4pm. Funds raised from this premier Victorian event will go to Free the Bears Fund Inc. The show is in it's third year and is growing rapidly in popularity, with stallholders on a waiting list for a space! It is a lovely day out, we will be there, so make a day of it!
That's all for now!
