Anna Lahr: Fantastic news, thank you Cindy and Build-A-Bear Workshop!
Heather Clark: Wow! This IS great news! Is this an end to the partnership totally, or is it just for the remainder of 2014 (because the bears are already sold out)? If you are done we are going to Build A Bear this week! I have twins, so double to bears for us!

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
