Ruth Janke

Ruth Janke makes memory bears from loved ones clothing. She has been doing this for about 25 years and enjoys the challenge of recycling in a sense. Whatever comes to her (shirts, hats, pants,dresses, dog beds and coats) she transforms into a memorable bear. She most enjoy the recipients and how this recharges emotions. The loved one can be hugged and smelled again.

    Ruth made me several memory bears from both my father’s and mother’s clothing. Beautiful work and extra attention to details. I admire them every day.
