                                                       Welcome to my website!

I cannot remember a time when I was not doing hand work and making something.
My mom and her many sisters all had a hand in teaching me how to sew, knit,
crochet and embroider.

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 21 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.

Teddy Hugs,

Mary & all the furry friends
