Saturday dawned bright and clear, it was the day of our special workshop in memory of our dear friend, Carol De Wet who recently passed away. Carol was the most positive person we have ever met and despite her battle with cancer over the past two and half years, she attended every club meeting and workshop since she joined us. One of her favourite bears she made was Tripoli, a special workshop bear I had designed to bring the members closer together. The workshop is called "And together they made a bear". Each person was given the same fabric (mohair) and pattern. We worked on the head first and completed these. The heads were then passed to the person on the left who attached their bear body part. This was once again passed to the person on the left who attached their bear leg parts and so on until the bear was totally finished. Each person was then given the bear back with their original head and had been made by all who attended. It is a wonderful workshop, bringing friends together, conversation is always hilarious and fun and Carol absolutely loved this. She had planned to attend this workshop with us on Sat 21st April and so in memory of our dear friend we named this bear "Caroli".
