The Bear Joint by Linda J. Dahl
My name is Linda Dahl. I have been designing and making artist bears for a year and it has become the center of my life.
Rachel Radman of Case'mere Teddies is a cousin of mine in California. She makes wonderful artist bears. On a trip to CA my sister saw her bears and told me she just had to have one. I saw pictures of her bears and fell in love with them immediately and decided I wanted one also. We found this coat made of Russian Squirrel and sent it to her and asked her tomake us each a bear with it but the pelts were old and brittle. Rachel being the goodhearted soul that she is did not want to break our hearts, so she came to Minnesota over Thanksgiving weekend and brought us each one of her Mohair teddies. She also taught me how to create bears. I can never thank her enough for all she has done to get me started on the road to Teddy Bear Heaven.
