When featuring BOBBYBAER, the UK Teddybear Club International called it:
THE YING & YANG - perfectly balanced world of Barbara Spiga
And that it is !
In 1999, without artistic background neither visiting shows nor starting with buying a kit for a bear,
I simply got hit and hooked the day when I received a greeting card that told me:
Teddy bears dry tears and give comfort and tenderness to everyone who needs them.
This became and still remains my slogan for creating bears and bear friends.
I really had no clue where and how to find supplies or how to start anyway - but the worst:
I didn't know how to sew!!!!!!!!
Whatever - who cares about such details??
As always in my life I could count on my mum.
She gave me encouragements, moral , practical and material help and to honor this continuous
Engagement I decided to call my creations BOBBYBAER........as my mum's nickname is Bobby.
From the beginning up to now I learned by doing and humbly can say that I made some huge leaps forward.
All BOBBYBAER creations are designed and hand sewn by my own as OOAK.
I also like to follow the ideas my collectors give to me.
I never know what I will create tomorrow - maybe an old style bear, maybe a mini puppy or a rag doll...........I love to surprise myself.
