Thank you for visiting! I appreciate the gifts of your time and your interest and hope you'll enjoy your stay.

Here at Potbelly Bears you'll find sweet, soft, stuffed things. Usually teddy bears. But sometimes pin cushions, dolls, or other textile treasures that squish and comfort and charm, and can be made from warm, wooly fabrics -- my favorite kind.

Everything I create is 100% original, made from the highest quality materials I can source, built to the most exacting of standards, and designed to last for generations. I do my very best.
