Cindythings Bear Shows!

 

 

 

 Hi, I'm Cindy, the teddy bear artist who makes Cindythings Bears.  Here are some fun photos from the teddy bear shows I've done, and some of the fun moments that have gone into making them happen!  I love doing shows and meeting new friends and Cindythings Bears fans!  It's fun!  And I love making the bears and animals to fill up my big tables.  All year long I look ahead to my various shows imagining what I want to do next time...

 

My very first show, Pat Moore's "Teddy Loves Holidays" Show and Sale in San Jose, California, in July 2006.  My husband Joe is a famous mind reader and traded a fun dinner show for my table!  I had previously only made bears for fun, so I had to make everything for my table in one month!  This is the only photo of me with my first show table.  That day I sold the very first mohair bear I ever completely designed and made myself, and lots more!

I had fun hanging out with my new friend, bear maker Patty Barone... and a memorable favorite little customer!  That's my friend Connie in the background, every time we do a show we somehow end up next to each other!

We lived in Cologne, Germany all Winter of 2008, while my husband worked on some TV shows with our friend, famed paranormalist spoon bender Uri Geller.  In March I got to visit the Schulte Mohair Factory in Duisburg, which was awesome because Schulte is really the only mohair I use.  We got a tour of the mill and I got to pick out mohair right in the mill showroom, it was great fun and a dream come true for a teddy bear artist!  Here are some pictures from my visit...

This is the mill...

and this is the showroom...

Inside the mill...  Here's something I bet you didn't know--all the mohair is made white and later dyed!

Look at all that mohair waiting to be dyed!

The big machines the mohair gets dyed in...

Thank you, Schulte!
