We will have breaks throughout the day for necessary things like the restroom and....COFFEE!  If you need snacks during the day, feel free to bring those and eat them whenever you need to. Did I mention to be ready for fun?  My classes are always up-beat and fun!  Be prepared!

Cindy McGuire Bio:
www.chinacupboardbears.com

China Cupboard Bears grew out of Cindy’s love of Antique dolls and Costuming and was a natural extension of her background in Fashion Design. Cindy started to make stuffed dolls and teddy bears in the late 1980's when her doll collection outgrew the house. She started doing doll shows to weed out her collection and find new things. When she ran out of antique dolls to re-sell, she started to make stuffed dolls and teddy bears. The bears started to sell and a business was born.
