Hide Adopted Bears
   
My introduction to bear making came in the early 1990s. It was love at first cut working with mohair and while my first teddy, Theodore, was not perfection, his hug was the motivation to continue and begin designing my own teddies. I now design bears, cats, mice, bunnies and elephants, along with other furry critters.

My bears, and friends, range in size from 4 inches to 24 inches. They are all original designs and individually machine and hand sewn. I use a variety of high quality fabrics including English and German mohair, viscose, antique fabrics and German synthetic furs. All creations have either glass or antique boot button eyes. Each bear, or critter, comes with a sewn in tag and hand written hang tag. Most of my creations are one of a kind. Occasionally there may be a small edition of 2-3 pieces.

My creations have been featured in several teddy magazines. I love meeting collectors online and at shows.
