We are deeply touched by the large group of visitors mainly our family, friends, students, colleagues and collectors who took their precious time to visit our booth at Suntec City last weekend!
Wayneston Studios and Deco Designs have collaborated to set up a booth from 11- 12 March at Suntec Convention Centre.
This is our first time having a booth at Suntec. It has been a while since we last did a flee market; probably more than 4 years ago!
This time, we had more variety of merchandise for sale. We brought a wide range of mohair, alpaca, bear making supplies and artist bears for this event. Although the market for bear making is small in Singapore, we are glad to have the support from our Singapore Teddy Bear Club members and students.

Sharing the booth with us was Melvin, who had a great collection of plants on sale for both days. He specialises in orchids, airplants, and cactus. His booth was popular, with many plants lovers coming to see and purchase some plants to beautify their home. We were glad to have him beside us as he brought us some new customers too!
Over the 2-days events, we were surprised to meet some Singaporeans who make teddy bear many years ago, even before we started making bears! One of the visitor shared with us that she has stopped making bears for more than 15 years! She used to make lots of bears with her husband and it brought them lots of wonderful memories. We were so happy to share our passion to bring teddy bear lovers together and invited them to join our community - Singapore Teddy Bear Club. We hope to meet them again soon in one of the meet up events.

Last Saturday, we had a wonderful day sharing with a group of church members on how to make a bear.
It was a fun event with parents and children involved in the bear making process. It was also a great opportunity for parents to spend time with their children and teach them how to make a bear themselves.
Being a small group event with 7 participants, they were divided into 2 groups. The parents and children began to make the bear by stuffing poly fiber into the pre-sewn bear body.
After the head, body and legs are firmly stuffed, Wayne and Philip taught them basic sewing techniques to close the openings of the bear, as well as how to tie and hide a knot after closing.
After stuffing, round head pins were then used to determine the eyes position. The students used a doll needle to set the eyes in position. After the heads were done, we moved on to share how to perform a button string joint for the arms of the bear.
Although it seemed like a simple bear to everyone, it took almost 3 hours for them to complete their bears! Everyone were very pleased when their bears were finally completed. It was very gratifying for both Wayne and Philip to see the delight in their eyes! Yet another successful workshop completed!
We want to thank the organiser, Ms Jean Yap, for hosting this wonderful event for her members and giving us the opportunity to impart some basic bear making skills to them. We look forward to having another workshop with them in the near future !
