What keeps me busy..

Preparing for the last 3 shows in 2012.

Upcoming weekend (Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 October )the show from Niesje Wolters in Den Bosch.. Yes..ATTENTION !! a new location!! For me this location is not bad as it is closer to my house so can drive home. 

Then the next week I will be in Wiesbaden. For the first time Kreativ Welt has an extra spot for Teddy Bear Artist, a Teddy Bear show within a very big happening..Kreativ Welt!! 

It is a 4 day happening so hopefully see many of you there. I don`t know what spot we will be, as these will be provided the day of set up.

Then at last on 18 November the Berlinale, Teddy Bear show in Berlin.

Besides bears I am preparing/dyeing lots of fabrics.. Special the the XX Long Pile mini fabric I like very much. It does sew easy, does not fray and the long hair makes it fun to scissor sculpt. It is easy to use for small bear as well as for bigger bears. I bring examples of bears made with this fabric, here is already one for you to see:

Another great thing, this fabric does hand- dye into lovely colors and shades.  Here some examples of the Tie Dye and Stripes I have done before with other mini fabrics:

And a new way of dyeing in shades from light to dark:

I call this SHADOW. I almost finished a bear with this new Shadow dyed fabric and hope to have him finished before the next shows for you to see.
Back to work.. and hopefully see you soon.

Hi I've seen your fabric on Facebook and did try to get to but it comes up with an error message. Is it possible to order this fabric from you. It looks amazing.
