Sorry for not posting and a few items felted by Geri Williams




I apologize for not posting lately but have been a bit under the weather. So I thought I'd post a couple of pin cushions that were needle felted by my friend and business partner Geri Williams.




Geri and I met at a local Teddy Bear Club Meeting in 1993. I had just started making and selling mohair hand made Teddy Bears under the name Bearly Legal Bears. Geri and I became friends and would see each other at local shows and the like. At that time Geri was making alot of bears out of real fur, like coats and stuff. Eventually she moved on to Mohair and and became famous. We both designed bears for QVC. Geri also went on to design for Disney and has done shows in Japan, Germany, England, Australia and New Zeland. Geri has aslo won numerous awards in the Teddy Bear World. Currently Geri teaches classes in Australia, New Zeland and the United States. She is also working on a Needle Felting book for advances needle felters.
