I make, sell and restore bears and soft toys. I also craft Christmas gifts, scenes in small boxes where bears roam and play.
I am a restorer of old bears. I also make teddy bears and make bear related crafts, such as small boxes with bear scenes. I also collect and sell vintage bear clothing and bear related beautiful things, such as Christmas tree decoration (bears of course) and bears of interest. I also paint Mandela stones and I can turn my hand to most things, such as felting and anything involving stitching and sewing. I had a teddy bear shop in Steyning but now do my restoration work from home and like to attend and exhibit at craft fairs. My hands are always busy and any craft is welcome. I also knit and crochet when I, m not restoring. The joy that comes with restoring teddy bears is a unique, lovely experience, especially when the bear is returned to its owner.
