Thank you so much for visiting my page. I’m so excited to be back for another Ebearshow:) again I am offering a piece where 100% of the proceeds will go directly to an animal charity caring for our native wildlife affected by the recent awful bushfires.
A little about me: I’ve been making bears and other friendly critters since the early 1990s, concentrating on small and miniature bears in recent years. I love to search out special fabrics and trims for each creation wherever I go. My creations have won the TOBY Industry’s Choice award several times, and appeared in magazines in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Germany and the UK, but the most rewarding thing for me is when a wonderful collector adds one of my pieces to their hug:)
I do combine shipping- If you purchase more than one piece, I will refund any postage after the first piece.
I hope you enjoy your stay on my page. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can:)
