The detail of Lynda's bears, kitties, bunnies and other animals is superb.  She achieves this by personally hand stitching and soft sculpting each of her little treasures. Each creation is stitched then turned.  A time consuming endeavor, but the results are worth the extra time Lynda puts into each friend she sends your way.  Lynda uses her wonderful sense of scale to ensure the prints on the  fabrics and  accessories are precisely the right size for each of her lovely little friends.

Only the the finest materials available are used in these creations.   Often these include long pile vintage upholstery fabric.  Their eyes are semi precious gem stones (black onyx for example) or glass beads.

Lynda's creations have been nominated for numerous Golden Teddy Awards, for both her original creations and her designs for Ganz.  You can see the bears that have been nominated on the Awards page.

Lynda has a selection of bears and other friends which she will personally craft for you.  Please view these incredible bears in the Artist Bear Gallery. You can read more about Lynda on the About Lynda page.

Lynda is always happy to work on special requests.  So if you have a special bear or animal you'd like, drop her an email.
