I am sooo ready for Spring this year!

But Mother Nature has had other ideas here in New England. We hope that Winter
has finally taken it's last gasp, but who knows.....

I have been ramping up my sewing and have several new bears to show you as soon
as the finishing touches are complete. You see Betty Sue and her little sock monkey
above. They will be available at the Quinlan show in Philadelphia April 29-May 1.

The show schedule to the left has been updated. The Raspbearies hope to  see you
in Philladelphia, Syracuse, Farmington, CT and Hunt Valley  this year.

Last September, the Raspbearies celebrated 30 years in business. Coincidentally,
They also appeared in the January 2016 Teddy Bear & Friends with a lovely story.

Meanwhile, back at Rapbeary Cottage, I have only recently started to venture
downstairs to the bear studio as I rehab the new knee. It is still hard to sit for a
long period and so sewing is a bit dicey. Alas, I have a very sparse inventory of
bears and also a few special projects that await my muse. So in the coming months,
I hope to be repopulating the galleries with bears that are actually available for
purchase. What a novel idea!

Have a warm and fuzzy Holiday Season and hope to see you in the new year!

I hope you are ready for Spring!

Winter has outstayed his welcome in New England - just ask my tulips. I am
looking forward to the Quinlan Show in Philadelphia and the warmer weather we
always find there.

I have been ramping up the sewing and will have several more bears posted as soon
as I get the finishing touches done.  Betty Sue and her little sock monkey in the
photo above will be available at the show in Philadelphia, April 29-May 1.

Last September the Raspbearies celebrated their 30th anniversary in business!
Coincidentally, Teddy Bear & Friends magazine did a lovely story about us in the
January 2016 issue.

Here       is a link to the digital article, if it will work for you.

two new knees to the test. Come chat!
