TBAAF - Purchase Directly From International Bear and Doll Artists
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.
