.. After 18 years of designing, I have decided to stop designing needlework.  “Rendevous” was my last design.  I am in good heath and I still enjoy stitching.  My husband retired in 2006 and since that time we have been traveling a lot. Gradually this led me into new areas.  For the past three years I’ve been teaching watercolors on Cruise ships.  See Amy teaching watercolors onboard ship -  3 min clip.  

I announced my retirement from designing June 1, 2013.  We continued taking orders and shipping Amybear desgins right up until the end of December.  Now, as of Jan 1, 2014,  Amybear Needlepoints has closed.  Nothing further has been decided.  

Thank you all so much -- honestly -- for your wonderful support through all the years.   Truly, it has always been my pleasure.   HAPPY STITCHING.
