Bear with me Enterprises
1919 Sherbrooke St. W
I have been making teddy bears from my own designs since 1996. I had previously made them using commercial patterns but after taking design courses taught by Diane Gard, Vanessa Littleboy and Barb Ashleigh Lawrence, I finally found the courage and confidence to design my own. My confidence was further bolstered when I entered two bears in the competition held during the Hug-In Convention in Toronto in 1997. One of the bears placed second and the other one received honourable mention. Three bears entered into competition at the Hug In in 1999 placed first, second and third.
The bears that I make at present range from 8" to 20" and are usually made from mohair, acrylic, natural fur or other fabrics that appeal to me. The mohair and the bears accessories that I use will vary according to availability. All bears are designed for the collector and as such are not suitable for children.
