Themed Bears for the Show

April 3rd, 2019

The Quinlan Show always has tables of bears and dolls made in a certain theme. They are exhibited  before the show, and available for sale at that time. I have never participated in the themed gallery, but this year I will participate in some of them. It has taken thought and research, and I must say I enjoyed the whole process. This little lady will be on the Elizabethan fashion and character table. Here she is trying on her Elizabethan collar. She is sitting on a cake stand which I aged. For some reason having her sit on a fancy stand just stuck in my head. I will add some pretty rose petals for her to sit on.


I can hardly believe it's almost time. 
Hope to see some of you there.

  1. Beautiful bears! I was following on Instagram and wondering if you had a photo of the steampunk theme bear?

    1. Hi Chey, I have not posted any photos yet because I have not taken their formal photos yet. I am at the point now where work in progress is done, but am still too busy finishing details to take their final photos. If you would like to send me your email address I will take a quick photo for you. The comments are moderated, so I will not post your address.

  2. Hi Joanne, as you will not be making bears for a while I wonder if I may pick your brains a little. I am a bear maker myself but more traditional early 20thC hump back type. If I were to have a go at making the realistic type, claws and all, are there any patterns or tutorials on line I could buy etc. Thank you for taking the time to read and reply to my emails. Best wishes Nicola

    1. Hi Nicola, As far as I am concerned the best realistic bear maker that there is has retired and is selling her pattern and instructions on eBay. Here is the address, see if you can copy and paste. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Teddy-Bear-sewing-craft-pattern-realistic-2-5ft-digital-delivery-PDF-full-size/113878514488?hash=item1a83b03b38:g:aRsAAOSwAPxcX4YS
