My Roots For The Custom Teddy Bear Creator

As a young girl I inherited my tailoring skills from my super talented mother. With these beginner skills I then went on to studying art and design and worked in display and exhibition for several years after that.

Next on the agenda was to teach foundation students textile skills.  Following on was my biggest role to date as a design consultant for Rowan yarns for several years running knitting and crochet design workshops which has provided me with a very solid set of skills and understanding in this industry that I have now brought to my Angel Bears business.

Family time! After my time at Rowan yarns I then started my family so went self-employed and designed bespoke wedding dresses for a while, so I could raise my small children at home.

Preparing for Angel Bears

I had been designing and making teddy bears for many many years and since I am a keen collector myself I have a special place for each and every one of them.

Repairing teddy bears and creating custom memory bears has captured my heart. Each one is done with the utmost care, attention and love they deserve from within my workshop.
