OOAK traditional vintage style bears in fine mohair, alpaca and luxury faux fur designed and hand-stitched with love.
Hello, I’m Nessa of Nessa Bears and the bears and I am based in Bedfordshire, sharing my home with my family and 3 special cats. The cats help me with my designing and sewing of teddy bears, studying carefully any fabric I am drawing on or cutting out – but only that which I am working on as it is obviously the most important.
I have spent my whole life enjoying various needlecraft, designing and exhibiting in shows for a hobby and also creating teddy bears for loved ones. I teach traditional Hardanger needlework and spend time doing this to relax. Then in 2016, I started to make Nessa Bears and like all teddy bear lovers am now passionate about them and about designing and creating these wonderful individuals.
I have exhibited at Hugglets since I started creating Nessa Bears and I am very pleased to be part of the very first online show and am very busy with designing and creating an all-new collection ready to share with all the bear lovers at the Hugglets Online Festival.
