Bearathon Report

We had a fantastic Bearathon day last weekend.  Thank you, thank you to everyone who attended and helped to make the day a success. 
45 bears were completed and are ready to hand over to Woman Against Rape, as well as a cash donation that will buy the items needed to fill comfort packs. 
Here are some photos taken last Saturday. 
As the ladies arrived, they received a pattern pack and they could choose which fabric they wanted to work with.
 The trusty Singer sewing machines were popular once again.  A real time saver, and great for accurate sewing around tight corners.

Once the sewing part was complete, we moved outside and did stuffing and finishing touches under the trees.  This is was the fun part.

If anyone looked as though they were not busy with a bear, Clyde offered them a pony ride...

Here are the fruits of everyone's efforts.


  1. Well done ladies. Your bears look great, and I'm sure they will comfort some child.

  2. Thanks Kay, I'm honoured to know so many ladies with a generous heart!
