Hi, my name is Margie Ross-Dryden, a Teddy Bear Artist from Philadelphia, PA. I discovered my love of bear making from another love of mine. Believe it or not my love of reading is how I got started. I stumbled across a teddy bear magazine in the local book store, after I bought my 1st kit and redesigned the bear in the kit,
Now 20 years later thru a lot of trial and error, reading, and getting help from talented artists, I am still looking for new ways to improve my creations, I constantly create new patterns, hand paint the glass eyes, and recently have been working on my shading and nose sculpting form clay. There’s always more to learn. I always strive to improve my. bears and only create One of a Kind bears; no two are ever the same.
My bears are made of the finest materials, mohair, alpaca, imported synthetics, and other quality materialsI appreciate your time and interest in my whimsical bears and other creations
