Section 1 ANSWERS:
The winner of this week’s section has been emailed–so if you didn’t hear from us, sorry, you didn’t win! REMEMBER, the person who wins the most weekly sections wins the prize–so it’s still anybody’s game!! These are some of the discrepancies they found:
On post 1 Berta starts selling “crochetted bears” in 2001, but lies in post 5 that she has been selling them since 1999/2000. This [woman] must have lost a year or two. 😑 She even says in post 4 that she was “well known” for these in 2000, which was before she even started selling them.
In post 3 Berta even says that nobody was making these things except for Sue Aucoin. She stated “there was no competition for you,” even though she’s trying to take credit for it.
Berta says in post 3 that Sue wasn’t the one who “discovered the thread bear,” but Sue didn’t have any competition and Sue was the one who called these things “thread bears” in post 2, not Berta. Even Sue’s business name was threadbaredesigns.
The bear in post 7 has a copyright 2000 date on it with the name “threadteds.” In post 1, with Berta’s first crocheted bear announcement in 2001, it looks like her business was b-wear at that time, not threadteds.
You weren’t the first to offer the concept,
No matter how much you declare.
What the double-whammy is:
You weren’t even first to call ’em “thread bears!”
