Lorraine of Fig Tree Hollow started making bears under the guidance of world recognised Teddy Bear Designer – Patti, of Kympatti Bears. Lorraine’s early career as a tailoress put her in very good stead to learning the art of bear making. With her artistic flair and attention to detail, Lorraine has been recognised by her peers as a talented bespoke bear maker.
Lorraine was delighted to put her talents to a good cause and has kindly offered to create a 2020 Restoring Hope Parkinson’s Therapy Limited Collection of five different handcrafted bears to auction. All proceeds will go directly to the new charity to help provide group therapy services for people with Parkinson’s.
The bears will be auctioned over the next 6 weeks, concluding on 31 July:
