Mildura people, what a great show you had last weekend. The bear competition was fantastic
As I have said many times, this show is so uplifting. The locals support us so much, it is a pleasure to trade here

Bear makers you should enter, there were well over 60 entries, from Youngsters to Seniors

It is lovely to catch up with Annette Henderson, Adele (Serendipity), Margo (Tipperary Teddies),Barb McDonald (who is also going to let us sell some of her great patterns) and of course Kerrie & Lesley. It is just like one big family especially when we go out to dinner
Check out our facebook page for more photos

How clever are our ladies. Each entrant was awarded a blue ribbon at the Penrith show last weekend & one of the ladies even got the bear of the show. Congratulations ladies, I am so proud of you.

Our first day of the friendship bear happened last Monday, all cutout bears were delivered in brown paper bags and were then handed out. This week the head & ears need to be sewn.

Next weekend we will be in Mildura at the Lutheran School Hall, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th. This Doll & Bear show is a favourite of mine, all the people really appreciate that you're there and the ladies of the committee make such yummy lunches, and morning & afternoon teas It is worth the trip, just for the food.... hehe
