Hi, my name is Barbara Greaves. I live in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. I have been making bears from patterns for about 20 years, and have been making them from my own designs for a few years now. My home is full of bears, but I don't think it is possible to have too many!!
I joined the Teddy Bear Mailing List early in 1997 and have been encouraged to design my own, and I finally started to do this in 1998. This page is the result of that. I have also joined in lots of swaps through the List and my hug has grown, with some beautiful bears hand made especially for me joining it. Each new hug member is welcomed with open arms by all the bears.
Brisbane is a beautiful sub-tropical city and is the capital of Queensland, Australia. We have wonderful native animals, some of whom are quite friendly.
