A dear friend from long ago surprised me recently with a copy of Much Loved by Mark Nixon.
Looking at the very loved and also sometimes falling-apart soft companions in the book inspired me to offer a workshop at my local library for repairing/refreshing “overloved” teddy bears or other stuffed animals. There are still some spaces available for Saturday morning, June 22, 10:30-noon. I’ll be sharing techniques, tools and tips for bringing vitality back to ailing animals — and improving their longevity.
I’m requesting that attendees please share advance info about your animal so I can bring the appropriate materials to the workshop. It’s open for ages 12 and up, space is limited, and registration is required. If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you on Saturday morning. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the animals we’ll be working on:
And if you’d like a copy of the worksheet we’ll be using to create an action plan for the repairs, you can download it here.
If you have any tips and tricks for helping much loved animal friends, please share them!
