Teddy Bear Scene magazine ceases publication

There are ups and there are downs, yes, even in the bear world. I learned today that our UK 'Teddy Bear Scene' magazine will cease publication after the July issue. To say I am downhearted is a polite understatement.

TBS has been a wonderful supporter of teddy bear artistry over the years and the editor, lovely Kathy Martin, has worked tirelessly to provide a specialist magazine which showcased the teddy bear, without preaching to, or patronising its readership. Losing such a vital and uniquely altruistic outlet for our bear industry has left me feeling very despondent today, to say the least.


  1. I'm totally shocked! I never knew. So we'll just have Teddy Bear Club International left. It's a bit of a worry isn't it, first Teddy Bear Times cease and merges with TBCI, then Teddy Bear Scene ceases. I share your sadness, I really do.

    Hugs, Sarah x

  2. Dolls, bears and all handcrafted items..... just not enough interest in them anymore I suppose. It does seem as though there is starting to be an upsurge in some things...but more the ones where people can buy ready made findings to complete projects. The paper projects come to mind... fancy ready made papers,stick-ons,letters.. stamps and scrapbooking things...not many folks have time or inclination to make anything from scratch anymore. It is pretty sad....
