I have just made my first ever bear and it was so much fun, highly recommend this class and Sally the owner and tutor of Bear shop was excellent. She had loads of patience and expertise, and a true bear lover.

Response from Bear with Me:Hi Carolyn
Thankyou for your kind words.
I’m glad you enjoyed your first taste at making a bear. Thankyou for your patience on what was a busy day
I can’t wait to see bear 2 and beyond.
What a fantastic day! I had no idea how to make a bear, Sally was kind, patient and fun. After 7 hours which flew by i came home with the most adorable cheeky looking bear and some bear supplies. I had so much fun and learnt alot and laughed till my sides ached. I couldnt believe i had made this bear who has had a few adventures with me. Go on this course its fantastic i would recommend it to everyone. Already have my next bear lined up for making. Bear hugs for Sally. 🐻❤

Response from Bear with Me:Hi Katie. Thankyou so much for your wonderful feedback. We did have fun didn’t we. Can’t wait to see your next creation.
See you again soon
A course being enjoyable is mainly due to the instructor and Sally is just full of life and so much fun to be with 7hrs just whizzes by. I came away with the most gorgeous bear that I had actually made myself!it even inspired me to go home and make some on my own. I now have a bear making corner in the living room. I suspect they are taking over. Do this course even if it's just for the beautiful bear you make on the day and 7hrs of random chat.
