Announcement   Hi my name is Sharon Hale; I am an Australian Artist and have been selling bears for 20 years.
All my bears are hand sewn and filled with steel and Dacron to make them appear heavy and life like.

The outfits are made from the best quality material which has been collected over many years. The work is fine and lace is heirloom lace, all the work is over locked and the embroidery is beautifully done by one of my best friends. I have a few helpers who love making little 2 ply cardigans and miniature items and all are made exclusively for Shaz Bears.
Every bear I make is one of a kind and never done twice.
Every bear has English high quality glass eyes. They are totally hand sewn with nylon thread to make them last generations.

They come complete with swing tag name and limited number as well as a back tag sewn in to the bear. Sometimes I do sign the foot of the bear as well.

Please put you name down on my teddy bear making list I teach every Monday Tuesday and Wed nights and it is just a great fun experience to make something great and meet fun people

This bear is hand sewn from mohair and filled with steel and Dacron

My name is Sharon Hale and I am 41 years old. Thank you for taking the time to look at my bears.
I have been busy over the last 16 years making thousands of one of a kind mohair bears. I would love to thanks my mum Julie who without I could never have fulfilled my big dream of having a business I love so much.

I have 2 boys and a beautiful husband who supports me very much . This business has made me be able to stay home and be with the children throughout their childhood which is very important to me.

I first got interested in bears when a friend and I went to a bear show at Camberwell Town hall in Melbourne. Here I found my love of bears . I fell totally head over heals in love with a beautiful little bear 10 cm tall. He was not for sale but was in a kit to make, so I attended a class and have never looked back.

About 11 years ago my mum Julie opened her home up to enable me to conduct classes at night. We still do them today ,and on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday from 7pm until 9.30 you will hear 8 women busy chatting and having a ball making bears,. I still have some of my original students who have become great friends.

I make bears nealy every day. The most asked question I get asked a lot is - Do you ever get sick of making bears ? ... I can honestly say I have never felt I could not make another , and I have said to my self when that day comes its time to stop.

I have become very fond of "Shabby Chic " and many of my bears represent that look. I also love vintage and old tins and nick knacks.

I would love to thank my many customers who have been buying my bears and supporting me through out the years, Many have large collections (Probably bigger than my own, "shaz bear" collection.) I just hope when you purchase one of my bears you will feel it is like a little friend , and when you peak over to them they will put a smile on your face .

Additional policies and FAQs
Thanks for looking at my bears.

Please remember all patterns are my own design. I have been making bears for around 16 years each bear is unique and I can honestly say I have to this day never tired of making them. I have produced so many thousand bears I have lost track, never keeping good records as I really never thought I would be around doing something I love for so long!
So again thanks for all who have bought my bears!
