Julie K. Owen has been a highly successful bear maker for many years. Through her company, the Great British Bear Company, she designs, produces and sells gift-boxed miniature kits, and also teaches miniature bear workshops. Julie's second book on miniature bear making, Miniature Teddy Bear Collection is also published by David & Charles.From Booklist:
Owen, proprietor of a British bear manufacturing company, imparts her experience to readers, with tips that showcase the true art of fashioning this stuffed, plush animal. Little space is wasted on history and other background information; the book begins with an in-depth look at materials, tools, and stitching techniques, then segues into the how-tos of 10 basic and 12 birthday bears. Every one is imbued with a different personality, thanks to Owen's skills and those of other artists from around the world. Based on the characteristics of, say, a Beatrice or a Bottlebrush Blossom bear, another more fully accoutered bear is born--like August's sun-blessed bear, replete with bikini, umbrella, and towel (but no sand). Joyous color photographs and great instructions will make this English import a child's next best friend. Barbara Jacobs
