Since I am new to this message board I would like to say Hi to everyone out there!!!!!

Also I still don't know how this Spring Jacket Lesson works??????? Can some one help me?

I love to sew, crafts, gardening, vegetables and flowers, collect bears and clowns. Just thought everyone might be interesting in something about me.

Thanks so much and hope to here from other sewers, crafters, bear &/or clown collectors.

Hi Aparry and welcome to Sew Whats New. :bluesmile

This week I will be posting the first lesson for the spring jacket. It will be announced in the newsletter and posted on my site. The link to this lesson will be on the homepage so you can find it easily.

Bears and clowns sound like fun, what type of bears do you collect, fuzzy, furry ones or ceramic?

I never had a bear as a child, although I owned a copy of Smokie the Bear. However, my daughter has a huge collection of bears! Her favorite store is Build-a-Bear. We have the collection of Briarberry Bears and since they have discontinued making them, we now also have collectibles.

I've never made a stuffed bear either. But after making a stuffed doll, I never felt the desire to repeat the experience. It was a great way though to use up odd scraps of fabric and notions like buttons, crafting beads and feathers.
