About GAndTheBear

On Etsy since 2016

I am a maker.

I've been making things for as long as I can remember but my favorite medium is sewing. Usually something quilted!

I started sewing in grade school with my mom, making clothes for myself. My parents gave me a sewing machine as a graduation gift, and my love of quilting started with a quilt I didn't even make! Stumped about what to get my brother for Christmas, I repaired his baby quilt and gave it back to him! It was a simple tie quilt, but I loved the whole process! I began to sew baby blankets, throw, and bed sized quilts as my standard gifts for new babies, weddings, and other milestones. I am also a member of The Modern Quilt Guild.

I love making things that are beautiful and useful that will get more wonderful with love! My textiles of choice are 100% cotton, wool felt, and leather. I'd rather have natural fabrics than man-made synthetics any day! I hope to share something I've handcrafted with you!

Thanks for taking a look, and have a great day!

Frequently asked questions
How can I request a custom order?

You can contact me via the blue "Request a custom order" link, or the ask a question button.

Can I wash my quilt?

Yep. All quilts from G And The Bear are machine washable! In fact, they will arrive at your door preshrunk, no needed to worry about the dryer! I suggest using a mild detergent in a cool or warm wash on the gentle cycle, followed by a low tumble or line dry.

How do custom orders work?

Custom orders are completed in 4 steps!

1. Contact me via the "Request Custom Order" link, or the "Ask a Question" button and request whatever you're dreaming about.

2. I'll respond the same day, ask more specific questions, and follow up with a quote, and a timeline.

3. If you choose to move forward with the order, I'll make a custom listing just for you. This listing will pop up in your inbox. After payment is complete I'll begin on your order. I keep in contact with you to make sure we share the same vision to create exactly what you want!

4. Your completed item(s) arrive your mailbox!

Can I add custom elements to my order?

Of course, it's YOUR order! Let me know if there is anything specific you want, and I'll do my best to make it happen. Or, if you want something special, but don't know exactly what that might be, we can work together to find a solution. If there is an additional cost I'll let you know right away.

Will I get updates about made to order or custom items?

Yes! I love making custom items, and want you to be able to peek into my studio to see progress on your order! I'll keep you up to date via email with photos, or if you prefer, I'll tag you on Instagram. Let me know your preference in the notes to seller, or drop me a quick note.
