About Me

Where do I start.......??!!

I'm known as 'Lisa B', but having married my wonderful hubby, Paul, in 2015 I am officially Lisa Pearce. I have always loved playing around 'making things' from a very early age. Over the years I have tried my hands at so many different crafts and have found some pleasure in them all. My favourites being jewellery making, silversmithing, Teddy Bear making and of course, becoming totally addicted to papercrafting and mixed media.

Many years ago I started collecting Artist Mohair Teddy Bears and it wasn't until I bought a teddy bear kit at a Bear Fair in Holland in 1996 that I had a go at making a Teddy Bear. I had a lot of fun and learnt a lot too from the process.

Being the typical Gemini that I am was not content with that and decided I would like to make my own Teddy Bears and critters and started designing my own. Hence Huggability Bears was born: www.huggabilitybears.co.uk  This is something that nowadays I do not get a lot of time for but would love to get back to in the future.

I am now a Craft Designer and Demonstrator for Imagination Crafts and a guest presenter for them on Hochanda TV. I'm also proud to be a member of the Hobby Art design team. I run my own workshops and monthly craft classes in Maidstone.  I have been teaching crafts for 18 years and love sharing my creativity with other like minded people. 

I hope to not only bring you fantastic products at great prices but also to be able to back it up with some wonderful inspirational ideas.
