Gem was recently auctioned for the Chidren's hospital in Bristol.
"When I got home from work, a big parcel was waiting for me, so I dropped everything and quickly opened the box and yes, it was her alright.
She is absolutely adorable; she has the cutest face and the softest fur. Her pretty dress and the butterfly necklace make her look so charming, like a real teddy lady. You have made a wonderful bear and I’m so pleased to have adopted her.
All the boy bears in my hug will be paying her a lot of attention; and so will I of course."

"I have now up to 4 bears from brotherwood bears, all diferent and each one as lovely and so well made"
" My sweet Dusty has the most wonderful pinkish Alpaca fur. She is my most detailed sculpted bear so far. Her glass eyes are sparkling and she wears a lovely glass-pendant. She always resides at my bed and is a beautiful eyecatcher! Dusty is so well made – she is truly one precious bear!
I really really love her!"
"I was lucky enough to adopt one of Sue's first beautiful fairy bears and she remains one of my very favourites and has pride of place at the centre of a group of the more feminine in my collection, in display case close to my bed. Her gorgeous wee face never fails to make me smile and she is made from luscious cream mohair with exquisitely sculpted paws - one of the prettiest bears I have ever seen, a gorgeous design which has been extremely well crafted and with a lovely personality of her own.
Jo from Arundel".

Red was a special commission and a new challenge!
" I have bought quite a few of your bears over the years and there are several reasons for this. First--quality;your bears are so well-stuffed and well-made. I just don't know of anyone who does this better! Second-variety. You make big bears, small bears, bears of all colors and shapes, dressed bears, bare bears--the list goes on! Third--customer service: I can say truly that your customer service is right on the dot. And Fourth? Just plain, out-of the -ordinary cuteness!!! Your bears have so much personality! And that is why I will keep coming back to Brotherwood Bears!!
"Sue’s bears are delightful little companions. Beautifully made and each with its own character.
I have several bears from traditional bruins to quirky scamps!
Having Sue’s bears around cheers me up
For quality and character I highly recommend seeking out a Brotherwood Bear"

In my local newspaper was a picture of a bear I made many moons ago, for Chippenham museum, not long after it opened.
He is His Majesty King Alfred, and although he usually resides in a glass case he came out for a photo shoot, and to meet some of his younger subjects..
