Bear and Quilt Artist
Hello, and welcome to Teddy My Bear,
As a very young girl, I always had to have my hands busy with handicrafts. My heart and hands were happy with sewing, crocheting, knitting, petit point, needlepoint or cross-stitch.
Then I took up quilting and fell in love. My abilities grew as the quality of fabric and equipment improved. As my experience grew in quilting, I also became a teacher and judge.
And then, I found my second love, making teddy bears out of old fur coats. I enjoy the creative process right from start to finish, from meeting a family member with a fur coat and stories to share, to delivering a one-of-a-kind bear home to it's family.
It's a privilege to bring these special teddy bears to life under my hands. They come alive and "speak to me" when their ears and eyes are added. I know they carry meaning and hold memories for their families.
I am truly fortunate to bring the two things that I enjoy the best to you - quilting and bear making. Come, wrap yourself up in one of my quilts and hug your teddy today.
Bear hugs to you,
