Hello and welcome to Broadacre Bears. My name is Simon Conway, I live in Kent with my wife and young son and I have been making bears on and off for over 20 years.

I have always loved arts and crafts, so when, years ago, I stumbled across a simple teddy bear sewing kit in our local shop, I decided to give it a try. That was the beginning of my bear-making adventures and I haven't looked back since.

I discovered bear fairs and teddy bear magazines, usually with a free pattern, so I was able to fuel my increasing passion for bear-making. Those first few bears were pretty rough, but, inspired by the bear artists and photos in the magazines, I was able to develop and hone my bear-making skills.

At the time I was living in a road called Broadacres so when I was looking for a name that I could use for my bear business, Broadacre Bears seemed appropriate. To me, Broadacres conjures up images of a broad-leafed woodland full of plants and animals and home to all the bears that I create. I can imagine the bears living out their lives, playing and having adventures in the microcosm that is Broadacre Woods protected from the outside world.

For many years bear-making had to take a back seat as work and home-life came in the way. Then around a year and a half ago I found myself in a position where I was able bring my bear-making back to the forefront again and I have been concentrating on it fully ever since.

Most of my early bears were given as gifts to friends and family, but recently people started to ask if I was selling my bears. This inspired me to create a website,(www.broadacrebears.com), so that I could introduce my bears to a wider audience. I hope that you enjoy looking through my bears and maybe find a character that you would like to come home and share their adventures with you.
