Hi there - let me introduce myself. . . My name is Martha Burch.
I began to make teddy bears in 1984. The first bears were FAR removed from the work I do today. They were made of antique textiles that had been too damaged to save as they were - quilts, rugs, blankets, and coats were all transformed into fat little string jointed bears with button eyes and noses.
In 1985 I stumbled on to a Teddy Bear & Friends Magazine and found a source for mohair. That inspired me to redesign my patterns and make my first fully jointed traditionally styled bear. And there was no looking back.
