Hello everyone, my name is Amy and I started Bowman Bears in January 2012.
It started as a little hobby to do while looking after my two children. I gave up my full time Job to be a full time Mummy, but I missed being creative so I started sewing again.
I started making Memory bears due to the fact I could not bear to part with some of their lovely clothes, they held so many memories, so I decided to make them into bears. I got lots of complements on the memory bears, which was great and with lots and LOTS of practice I started making more and selling them.
Bowman Bears has grown from just making the odd Keepsake Bear, to now making Wedding Dress Bears, Remembrance Bears and Keepsake Quilts.
I work from home in my new office /dining room! It fits in perfectly with the children and school runs and I can even work in my PJ's!
I have so many ideas for Bowman Bears and I am constantly grateful to the support I receive from my lovely customers, so THANK YOU for making what I love doing a reality.
I am always about to answer emails and enquiries, whether it is 6 am or 11am. Please do get in touch and I tend to get back to you very quickly, my email address is
