The Bears are Here!

Three Bears Tatting Shuttle Set

A GRIZZLY MOUNTAIN SPECIAL!!!! Sometimes Daves creative moods tend to be more whimsical and with Christmas shopping just around the corner he thought of this special set of tatting shuttles that can only be a GMA exclusive.

Dave has hand crafted this bear family of tatting shuttles out of beautiful Cherry wood, with a Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear.

Papa Bear is a larger 4 ¼ inch shuttle styled after the large popular plastic Tatsy shuttle.
Mama Bear is the more common 2 5/8 inch standard shuttle, and Baby Bear is only 2 inches long for smaller projects.

To keep this family together during hibernation periods, Dave picked up an unfinished craft box and embellished it with his own pyrographic artwork. Baby bear (inside top lid) is only allowed to play in the immediate area of the den. He climbs a nearby birch tree to survey the area and keep an eye on what you are working on. On the top of the lid Dave burn etched the GMA Cascade Mountains scene where this bear family lives.
