Memory Bears are a great way to preserve a favorite shirt, jeans, robe, or blouse that evokes memories of a loved one or a special time in someone’s life. Join Jan as she guides you through the entire process, and even shows you how to add personal touches to these cuddle bears. Memory Bears make fantastic, thoughtful gifts, and you’ll love the result of sewing the first of what will probably be many Memory Bears. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
