I have loved teddy bears for as long as I can remember. As a child I never wanted to play with dolls. My toys had to be soft, cuddly and filled with character.
I started collecting them as an adult and making them seemed a natural progression
But I didn't stop there!
Old bears sometimes need a doctor. Years of hugging can take its toll and who better than myself to offer them the tlc they deserve.
"Teddy bears have a fascinating history that we must preserve for future generations to enjoy"
