About Laronia

Laronia lived and worked many years in Maryland and is now retired and living in the mountains of West Virginia where she is pursuing her love of sewing and gardening.  Depending upon the work load once she has the material she can have the finished bear back to you in approximately three weeks.

Choosing Material
Choose an item of clothing that has a special meaning for you, (knits, delicate fabrics, wedding dresses etc. are hard to work with) however if that is what you wish, I will do my best to make a bear from them.  A shirt sized garment (one half yard of more) is required to make a bear; it is suggested that you send two garments with a note stating your preference just incase one does not sew well.
