Hello, My name is Vicky Lougher and I live in Michigan, USA. I have been creative since childhood and created my first teddy bear from a McCall's pattern in the fall of 1992. Soon after, I began designing my own teddy's and in 1996 won my first major Industry Award. Over the years, I have been honored to win several major industry awards (including the TOBY, Golden Teddy and URSA) for my work and my bears are best known for their sweet soulful expressions. My bear designs range from the very elegantly dressed, to the very simple. I hope you enjoy my bears!
