Hi my name is Lynette and I live on the edge of The New Forest in Hampshire, UK. I have been making my 'HUG TESTED' L J BEARS since '95, starting off very slowly and gradually increasing as my customers found me. I have had a website for over 10 years this being started by both my Sons but they of course have long since flown the nest and Paul and myself have become very efficient in the running of and of up dating the site. I do not attend many Teddy Bear Shows in the course of a year just the two main Hugglets shows in London and perhaps a local Fair that is sometimes held in our area. Most of my Bears are sold via the website and I do specialise in Custom made Bears to order. I have created many of these over the past years and they can all be found on my website under 'SPECIAL BEARS'. There are some very unique and inspiring creations there, mostly happy Bears but some very sad occasion Bears, also some Regimental Bears.
