Default Who are the Wooden Teddy Bear Pattern makers?

Along time ago on AFSP someone listed the names that went with the pattern makers initials.

This is not my complete list of initials that I would like to track down (so don't feel bad if I left you out)

I am asking because... Maybe the magazine could publish some of these FRETWORK artists patterns in the magazine.

SAM is Sylvia
TBP
CW
SM
GSA
WT
AP
WKS
CC


I have found that the Teddy Bear Collection has more things that I am interested than the other catalogs.

Also on my list of favorites artists
Phunky, Emmit, Andy Deane, Old Grizz, Noel (and more)
and yes even Kevin..though the Jedis portraits are a challenge.

I thought it easier to explain what I like in fretwork by listing the artist vs trying to describe what I want to cut. Sylvia is still number #1 on my list. followed by Jim Sweet.

Ummm...John...we had Sylvia in the Holiday issue....

We had another one scheduled for the Spring issue, but I haven't been able to reach Sylvia to get the electronic version of the pattern...

And wait...Jim Sweet's not fretwork! We consider his Woodimals puzzles! So that screws up all of my matrixes.....Argh.... <GRIN>

Thanks for the replies.

as a FYI.. for me it helps to know the pattern makers before I make an order.

why...? The style of the pattern........ Hope I get to see more name with the initials.
