We are a family of Teddy Bear Lovers (or Arctophiles if you want to use the correct term). My name is Sue and I am the main Teddy Bear, I started collecting bears about 25 years ago and loved to go into shops to see what new bear I could buy. 15 years ago I found out how to make my first teddy and I was hooked.

I also have two dogs, Roxy the Jack Russel and Lucky a snoodle. That is a schnauzer, poodle cross. They also get involved in the bear making business, by greeting all who visit us with lots of tail wagging and barking.  Roxy also loves to sleep with the bears when it gets cold. So we always have a few bears on the settee to cuddle up to.
