TBAAF - Purchase Directly From International Bear and Doll Artists

About Me

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about the Original ThReAdTeDs® collectables Bears and Friends.

My name is Berta Hesen-Minten, the Artist behind ThReAdTeDs®. Needlecraft has always been my passion, and it has always amazed me to see the wonderful things that could be made from thread or wool.

I made sewn bears before I began designing and creating thread bears. In 2000 I jumped into my on-line adventure, difficult at first, but after a time, thread bears became very populair for the bear collector, as they remain today.

I enjoyed designing my own bears from the very beginning and have grown to love it!  As my bears have grown and changed, my patterns and designs have grown and changed as well.

As all my bears proudly wear the name, ThReAdTeDs®, my sewn bears come with someting in thread added to them like a thread collar, thread bag, thread clothes or even a thread bear/friend.

I also love making needle felted bears from carded but unspun wool.  These bears are very time consuming, but it is fascinating, making bears in this manner.  Made from the same wool used to make the thread for my original thread bears; these little bears are also very proud to wear the name, ThReAdTeDs®.
