Joanne Clayton - Teddy Bear & Accessory Artist
Hello, my name is Joanne Clayton and I have been sewing for as long as I can remember.
Its quite possible I was born with a needle in my hand as the skill was inherited from my Mother.
In 1995 I made my first of many mohair teddy bears and then I moved onto making both vinyl and porcelain dolls.
My Mother and I had our own shops that we stocked with our own creations which included display baskets, clothing and accessories; we were also show exhibitors.
In 2002 my dear Mother passed away along with my beloved son and husband. These tragedies, as well as my own failing health meant I could not run the business any more.
However, my love for the reborn community wouldn’t allow me to give up completely so after a break I continued to exhibit at the shows and I have my own page on Facebook.
It is very much a small family business with my daughter in charge of the page, general admin etc, and my wonderful husband is our ‘muscle’ at the shows.
It’s perfect for me as I can no longer lift stock etc and I can continue to do what I love without having to do the admin side of things.
I am happy to take custom orders on clothing and baskets.
My daughter mans the inbox which is great because as a collector herself, she is fab at visualising what the customer wants.
After all these years, I still enjoy what I do and I can’t imagine giving up my sewing needle any time soon.
