We are delighted to announce that Wayneston Bears is celebrating its 6th Anniversary this month! We have indeed come a long way!
Some highlights of the year includes....
Brisbane Winter Wonderland Bears & Dolls Show 2014
It was another exciting experience for us to exhibit once more in Australia. The weather was really nice and cooling. We are pleased to have met some of our Australian friends again, especially Margaret Burke, Tracey Sully, Laraine White, Ann-Marie Cole, Robyn & Alph Gan, Linda Bean, Stephanie Raye, Susan Leigh, Geoff and Valma Bolton.

|Dinner with my Beary Friends at the Eat Streets Market|
After the wonderful event, we had a scrumptious dinner at Eat Streets Market. I really do hope to meet you all again soon!
Australian Bear Creations Magazine
We want to thank Ms Susan Leigh for sharing our 'Singapore Teddy Bear Show' review on the Australian Bear Creations Magazine which was featured on Volume 18. No.6.
Intermediate Class - Make a Panda Workshop
Our very first Intermediate Class, Make a Panda Workshop in July 2014, saw 5 participants coming to learn new techniques to apply on their teddy bears. Some of the techniques learnt in the two lessons were needle sculpting on paws and foot pads to create little fingers and toes to enhance the realistic look of their pandas and stitching 2 different coloured mohair together on the face and body of their pandas.
The workshop was a success and they were able to apply the same techniques for their other creations.
Teddy & Co. Magazine Oct/Nov 2014
We want to take this opportunity to thank Mr Richard Backschas for sharing our story and creations with the community in Germany. We are very pleased as it is the very first time being featured on a German Magazine. We hope that this is just the beginning of more to come!
Channel 8, "Super Family" 超級一家
We are honored to be casted in the role as a Teddy Bear Instructor in the kids programme, Super Family aired on 28 December 2014. Although it's our 2nd time being in a local production, it brings about new experiences and excitement for us.
We are glad to be able to assist the little girl, Pei Fen to complete a cute little bear as a gift to her sister. Special thanks to Wawa Pictures and all the production film crew for their professional support to make this programme a success.

Make a Valentine Day Bear Workshops
We have specially created 2 different Valentine Day Bear Workshops to cater to different groups of people. One was a regular two-days workshop while the other was a one-day 5 hours workshop.
Although it was our first time doing so, many signed up for the workshops! In total, Two "one-day" workshop and One "two-days" workshops were organised. One of the workshops was conducted in Singapore Island Country Club! The workshops were well received and we hope to continue to improve on the bear designs and patterns for new workshops in the near future.
