I live in Ohio with Phil, my husband of 50 years. We have a daughter and son who are both married. We've been blessed with 4 sweet grandsons! 

After owning my own business in Bridal Design for more than 30 years (www.sewperfectforyou.com), I am expanding my creativity to include one-of-a-kind collectible teddy bears. All of my bears are made from the finest mohair and are jointed with hardboard disks, lock nuts and bolts. I use cotter pins for their little wobble necks. Unless noted, I use 100% wool felt or velvet for their little paws and feet. Depending on the bear, they are stuffed with different combinations of premium fiber fill, 100% cotton stuffing, micro beads, glass beads, steel shot, and of course, love! They all have either premium German glass or shoebutton eyes. 

My bears all have Swarovski crystals on their noses -- my trademark! They are machine and hand stitched. All of my bears are one-of-a-kind with one-of-a-kind outfits. All bears come with a signed adoption certificate and will never be duplicated.  Unless noted, all bears come with all that you see. I've used different combinations of generic patterns, changing them to suit my creativity. My biddle bears are my own design. An ostrich was my inspiration for their sweet little faces, lanky limbs, and big feet! 

My bears are intended for the adult collector and are not suitable or safe for children.
