One More Bear � by Cindy Anschutz
Several years ago, I developed a rheumatic condition that suddenly closed the door to the fast paced, high pressure lifestyle I had been living.
In an effort to fill the hours at home, I decided to turn an old fur coat into a teddy bear. IT WAS AWFUL! Now challenged, a second, third, and fourth teddy bear was made; each a little better than the one preceding -- I was hooked! Every day, my husband returned home from work to find "ONE MORE BEAR" sitting in his favorite chair.
From the start, our dear friends, Carol and Doug Jayne, took a strong interest in my
teddy bears and asked if I would like to design a Christmas window display for their fine art
gallery. The response to the bears was overwhelming. People insisted on buying the bears right out of the display window! Carol and Doug believed that something special was happening. Their encouragement, along with that of my husband, Chip, our daughter, Karyn, and close friend, Anita Miller, prompted the purchase of more supplies and ONE MORE BEAR was born!
