I live in a lovely village just outside Norwich in Norfolk UK with my husband and 2 cats, Bert & Millie. We enjoy getting out and watching live music and I am also a singer in a band.
I have been making bears and bunnies since 2014 selling to friends and family, online through my Facebook page and at the Great British Teddy Bear Festival at Woburn Abbey.
When the world changed in 2020, so did our lives and bears took a temporary back seat as I was working full time and caring for my elderly Mum. Fast forward to September 2021 and my Mum needed more help which means that I made the decision to give up my full time job and sort out her needs.
Having settled into a new routine, I am now her part time carer looking after her two days a week. This means I now have the rest of the time to devote to bears and sewing, which is great!
You may see me at a craft or wellbeing fair if you are in Norfolk, do come and say Hi!
Neil provides the IT support for Clumsy Bears. He also has the very important job of tightening the cotter pins in the artist bears. These are the five joints that enable the head and limbs to move!
