My journey of bear making started in late 2009. I had always wanted to try my hand at crafting a bear, but with little to no sewing knowledge, I put it off for many years. One day I decided to bite the bullet (with a push from Mum) and went to a Spotlight class with a lovely lady named Val. She taught me the basics of bear making and drove my love for the craft into overdrive.
I started designing and making my own bears in May 2011.
I use the finest quailty alpaca and mohair, and also use Sassy and Cashmere fabrics for mini's.
I live in the suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria with my two beautiful children and my wonderful, supportive partner.
