BEARS4U has been creating and designing a combination of 100  or more...
Sherpa BeanBag Charity 
 BEARS, Puppies & Bunnies that will be donated to 
The Friends of Beaverdams Church

Each one has a Custom embroidered Logo from the Beaverdams Church on it's belly.
Created  by me using their Logo ...

They have all been created from New Materials made in Canada
Stuffed with %100 polyester stuffing 
Handmade plastic pellets inserted in a polyester bag 
and hand sewn inside there bottoms for weight 
Each one comes with safety eyes and noses! 
The fabric used in the ears pads is New! Polyester Cotton.
and a BEARS4U Label,  on a foot pad.

It has been donated for this and other fundraising activities I have been doing! 

They were first available at the …
Thorold’s Annual Christmas Show & Sale 2019...

In the beginning of this BEARY awesome adventure
 to help with the restoration of the
  1832 Beaverdams Church
Two Original Bears were created to present to the committee for approval
They were created from " Shag Felt" and shown in the picture below with: 
Melanie Battell, Vice President at that meeting!

You can contact them...
The two Shaggy Felt ones above, have been adopted and along with
The ✂️Many, Charity BeanBag Bears, Kitties, Bunnies, &Puppies🧵
since the beginning of 2019...

The plan was to bring some with me to the four Shows booked in 2020
From the Thorold’s Spring Show to the Winona Peach Festival ( ), London Doll & TeddyBear Show then back to Thorold for their amazing Christmas Show! 
The Friends of Beaverdams Church were also going to have them at their fund raisers!

Then... COVID-19 began and things started to be cancelled! 
Many festivals or Shows weren’t  able to happen over the last year. 
Events that the Friends of Beaverdams Church hold also had to be cancelled from the : 
“How Great Thou Art” , Their Spring Luncheon Fundraiser, 

And so many more Events for their fundraising during this past Year ...
The Annual Applefest in September, The Spring Yard Sale, etc...

 As we are all aware that 2020 has been a challenge for everyone 
we must do our part & stay apart! 
Wear a mask
Wash your hands
Stay home and stay safe! 

Some Businesses where able to go virtual and have shows on line! 
Even Friends of Beaverdams Church 
Check out this link...

Last Christmas 2019 at the Thorold’s Annual Christmas Show 
Hand knitted hats sweaters  capes and scarves  have been created just for them:  
Thank you Penny for your generous gift the Bears and Critters can keep warm for the winter! Lol

 The link above is where you can see all the details of the restoration of  this 
1832Methodist Episcopal Church 
and awesome story of this amazing group! 
This Community of amazing people working together to restoring a heritage building and preserving a piece of History! 
I am still creating “New Critters “, to donate to the Beaverdams Church,
 Sherpa BeanBag Charity Critters & Bears Fundraising Events! 
For 2021 you can donate directly or adopt one  from them

We now have Foxes, Skunks Cats, Puppies, Hounds, Bunnies 
& of course BEARS4U 🇨🇦
If all goes well with the Pandemic and we can get back on track with Shows and Events, I will also have some with me up for adoption...
Show you care 
Adopt a BEAR
Or Critter...
Help me help them restore History! 

Check back often on both sites to see what new critters I have created using the original pattern and making various changes to create different critters! 
Wishing you all a safe  and beautiful Christmas, praying we can have a great 2021

God Bless Stay Safe...

2019 WeeFolk Series

2019  #04 Chandler BeeWax, WeeFolk 

Handmade in Canada

Each Series has been created and designed by me.
As with all my creations they are alsew a
One Of A Kind , works of Art

This year I created 4 lil Boy’s, in the 2019 WeeFolk Series
And 3 are still up for adoption. 
I am happy to say they all got to go to the shows with me.
But since I did not get them totally completed...
For adoption, they did how ever accompany me and got worked on at my 3 yearlyShows. 
For everyone to view.
London Fall Doll & Teddy Bear Show

Winona Peach Festival,
 my SPOT is on Red Haven 
Look for me and all my creations same spot, 
Only In a 20x10 foot spot 

Thorold’s Annual Christmas Show 
#04 Chandler BeeWax  was ...
 Here is my 2019 Series lineup.
Only one is a sitter the rest all have wired armatures and legs for standing and posing.
They all came with Handmade hats and will have a musical Solid Brass Instrument.

Chandler BeeWax awaiting for his sewn in name label

With this series they each got plump lil bellies...

With the body changes I had to redo my clothing patterns to custom fit each one.
Including their little boxers. 
Chandler has a very responsible job, just as all the “WeeFolk” do! 
He has to make sure the Candlelight Lanterns all meet with The NorthPole codes!  
He is also the Bee Keeper and collects the beeswax to make his candles! 
At the North Pole it is way to cold to have Bees! But he does have a large Green House that stays warm enough to house the bees and grows fresh berries and cocoa beans! This way there is no shortages of flowers for the Bees to  do their pollination ! 
Which means... Lots to pollenate! 
More Storytelling to come...
