My name is Anita and I have a bear obsession! I love making bears from my own patterns, and have tried to balance my bear making with my job as a first grade teacher, and now a new mommy! My daughter provides loads of inspiration and I hope that you enjoy looking at my creations as much as I love making them.
I have been around the bear world for many years now, formerly of East Bench Bears. I have won awards, been featured in Bears and Buds 2007, and was even on HGTV's "That's Clever" making one of my mohair creations!
My new name is Chicago Bear Co., and I am now Anita Spero-Markowski. Thanks so much for stopping by, and bear hugs!
