Our annual Mother Bear KAL has begun!  Any bears you have knit or crocheted on 2019 are eligible to post in our FOs thread. Each bear is an entry.  Come join the Chatter thread here!

We have new prizes donated by hikeknitcamp (designer Cheryl Beckerich).  Please message alittleposy or knittybarb if you have a prize you’d like to contribute.

Want to start your Mother Bear-making journey?  Check out the Mother Bear Project website to buy a pattern, make a donation, or see the gallery of children and their new bears, and the MBP Ravelry group for great ideas and community with other bear makers.
