Thanks from Higgys Bears

Wow , what an incredible year this has been and to finish it all off I have officially entered the Toby Awards , the finals to be held in San Diego in the New Year, how exciting is that.
However I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my Higgys Bears collecters and all those who, come rain or shine, attend many of the events  through-out the year.
Without you all there would be no Higgys Bears XXXXXXXXXXX
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
I look forward to seeing you in the 2013, Hugglets 24th Feb. maybe : ))))))))))
Until next time,
Higgy Hugs,

Higgys Bears at Bath

Hi everyone,
well I can't believe it's over, I was soooo looking forward to our visit to the Panda Party at House of Bears - Bath, now it's been and gone !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
However the great news is that "Shadow" my donated bear sold before I'd bearly got my foot in the shop door!

A lovely lady named " Anna" bought him and asked me to sign the Heart round his neck.
Anna was over the moon and I must say I did have a warm glow inside to think that my little donated bear had gone towards, in some small way,to help the Macmillan Nurses,
Sue does a great job at House of Bears Bath raising money for this most deserving course.

If you are ever in the area look out for "Takoe" and" Yuki", two stunning Panda's that can be found in The House of Bears - Bath

Until next time

Higgys head for Hugglets

Hi to everyone,
After a couple of weeks R and R (and of course sourcing out new ideas ) I'm concentrating on the big one : ))))))))))))) Of course that can only mean "Hugglets"
I've found some lovely furry fabrics and also some beautiful print cotton fabrics, my husband was quite devastated when he heard me say  that I was going to fade some of it to create an old fashioned feel !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now with hols. over I am fully concentrated on Hugglets on 9th Sept 2012 at Kensington Town Hall, London, this is the biggest and best bear fair for my latest and of course your favourite bears : ))))))))
I have new designs in different fabrics and keep an eye out for the Elephant!!!!!!!!!
Well I must go I have lots to do,
Until next time,
Higgy Hugs, Emelia XXXXXXXXXXXXX

Higgys rest before Hugglets

Higgys Bears have Hugglets Teddies 2012 on the horizon and I have decided to take a few days away from the computer to concentrate on new designs and source new fabrics. I'm looking for new colours (I think!!!) the trouble is I come up with these ideas and then most times revert back to the Traditional tones or Vintage colours, but then again that's what I love and I think that's what works best with my bears xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
If you want to see the fabrics I have chosen they will be avaliable at Hugglets on 9th Sept.
More updates for you on this event later on.
As always Higgy Hugs,
Emelia xxxxxxxxxx

Higgys Bears and Titanic

Hi everyone,
I have made a tribute bear to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the "Titanic"
This bear is for show only and not for sale, he is off to a local school as part of their "Titanic" display for next week.
Please take a look at my "Titanic" bear he is on my web-site on the New Bears page and will be on display there for a limited time only.
I hope you like him, I love him and I hope the children at our local school will fall in love with him too and he may even help them to understand a little about the life and the history behind the passengers on the "Titanic".
May they all rest in peace. X.

Higgys Bears love Mothers Day

Mothers Day is fast approaching but I'm ready!
I have one bear only, her name is "A Mothers Day"when she's gone she's gone!
I did sooooo well at Hugglets that I decided to limit myself to one bear only for Mothers Day, now I have to concentrate on lots of new designs for my forthcoming shows.
It's all very exciting, but first, time for a coffee I think to set me off on the right foot : )))))))))))
Until next time,
Higgy Hugs
