Abby’s Bears is full of handmade Teddy Bears, bear related gifts and bear making materials – basically everything you need to make Teddy Bears. We’ll even show you how in our bear making workshops held in the shop!

We stock handmade Teddy Bears of every shape and size – most made of mohair and others of synthetic fabric.

Whether you are choosing a gift for someone special or adding to your collection of bears, there’s bound to be the perfect bear at Abby’s Bears – and if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, we’ll make a bear to your specifications. We even stock the latest range of Teddy Bear Fashion!

We also stock bear making materials such as patterns, mohair and synthetic fabrics, joints, glass eyes and anything else you may need to make your very own Teddy Bear.

And if you’d prefer not to tackle making your first bear on your own, join our bear making workshops where we’ll show you how to make a Teddy Bear to take home with you. Workshops are kept small so each person gets the attention they need to complete a Teddy Bear they can be proud of.

The cost of the workshops depends on your choice of bear and fabric and includes a sewing kit that consisting of all the materials you need to make a bear, plus two three-hour workshop sessions.

“Sew-alongs” take place regularly and Abby is on hand to point you in the right direction should you need guidance.

Due to the limited size of both workshops and sew-alongs, booking is essential.

For a child’s birthday party with a difference, why not book a bear making workshop. Each child gets to take a bear that they’ve made home. What a great way to celebrate!
