About

Living in beautiful Tasmania I have been making bears since 1994 work from a downstairs 'Bear Room' with a view of our garden and Mt. Wellington, which is visible from most areas of Hobart and its surroundings. I find the temperate climate of Tasmania keeps the creative juices flowing and I still enjoy every bear I make.
All Aerlinn Bears are made from the design stage to completion by myself.


I have won numerous Best in Category awards over the years, including Bear of Show at the Sydney Teddy Bear Fair in 2001, and Best in Category in 2002, 2003, 2004 & 2005.I am currently not trading at any Bear Fairs nor do I enter competitions any more, I am content to stay home creating Bears and the odd Elephant forever trying to make the perfect one.

I enjoy the challenge…

I enjoy the challenge of miniature bears, mainly making bears 3" to 7", with the traditional bear being a favorite. It all depends on the suitable mohair's and mini bear fabrics that I can find to make the size and style of bears I’d like to create.The possibilities are endless making most of my bears one of a kind creations.

I sell through Etsy my Big Cartel e store and the occational eBay listing under the user name aerlinnbears.


My husband of 26 years is a chef extraordinaire. We have been blessed with two wonderful sons Alistair and Mason both at University now & by far my best creations LOL Jess the tabby cat shares our home with us though I'm sure she thinks we share hers. We think she is our best cat dog ever.
