Two of my Teddies, Edna and Raymond, were featured in the US magazine Teddy Bear and Friends (click on the link below to see the feature). In Beyond Mohair, author Stephanie Finnegan explored the world of teddy bears made of unusual materials:

"With her own one-of-a-knd or very limited-edition bears, the Britain-based artist lets the fabrics determine the outcome, with colors or patterns affecting each bear's appearance and disposition."

"Я приютила двух мишей, Мартина и Сьюзи. Они как брат и сестра. Мои мишки очень нежные и трогательные зверики. Эти изящные и выполненные с большим вкусом и любовью игрушки привнесли немного лирики и теплоты в мое зимнее настроение.
С удовольствием приобрету еще кого-нибудь для себя и своих друзей. Пусть у всех живет такое же теплое счастье!"

("I have adopted two teddies, Martin and Susan. They are like brother and sister.

"I just had to write to thank you for Miles' copy, who I have now called Tedward. Miles means so much to me, as he was bought for me before I was even born [...] I trawled ebay for many years trying to find another Miles, with no success. I really can't believe how brilliant Tedward is - he looks just like Miles. I can't believe you were able to copy his feet. I adore him to bits! [...] He means the world to me and I love him. You have truly made my Christmas magical, thanks you. He is a dream come true. "
