About Me

I have been designing and making teddy bears for the past 14 years.


My love for teddy bears started way back in 1991 when my husband bought me my very first teddy bear as a valentines gift, he was an Asquiths bear called Jeremy and is still with me to this day.  In 1996 my husband bought me a teddy bear pattern and fabric for my birthday and from that day on I was bitten by the teddy bear making bug, all my relatives that Christmas received a handmade teddy bear. I still get great pleasure in designing and making my teddy bears and I love to see the happiness they give people when they find a new home.  I also love to hear how my bears are getting along in their new homes and some of them send me postcards when they have been on holiday.


My other love is my dogs, my husband and I have been rescuing Rottwiellers since 1982 and at present have two beautiful girls called Leah and Aria.  We rescued Leah when she was found roaming the streets and Aria came to us as a 15 week old puppy because her pervious owner said that she was vicious, how on earth a 15 week old puppy could be called vicious I will never know, the strange thing is we have yet to hear her growl and she will be four years old in September! Both girls are a credit to the breed.

Hi Pauline, yes things are ticking along here :) I'm just putting the finishing details to the sunbear sample for my Bear Basics workshops in September, we finally got everything sorted! I'm so looking forward to this trip, I'll be teaching in Germany before Hugglets and in England afterwards. Then off to Spain and Morocco for a couple of weeks with Chris before going home :) Should be fun! I adore Rotties, they are such big softies! All the ones I've met don't deserve their ferocious reputation. Hugs to you and to Lia and Ria of course :)

Hi Pauline,
Lovely to meet you here as well :-)
It's a wonderful thing your doing for the dogs ! One of the first things I will do when I can retire (or semi-retire) from work, is adopt a dog (or maybe two) from the local animal rescue shelter that I have been sponsoring for many years. Unfortunately that won't be for some years yet :-(

Big Hugs,
Peter, TJ, Bryce, Trifle & Nipper
