D'Lyell Bears

D’Lyell Bears

Celebrating our 25th Anniversary! We can't believe we have been 'in the fur' for quarter of a century and still going strong.

Welcome to our world of bears and other friends. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Roy and I have been making bears since 1991 and amazingly(!) still get as much pleasure from it as we did when we started.

2016 has just flown by and we can't believe that we are down to the last 2 shows of the year! We have the Auckland 'Festival of Quilts' show the first weekend of November followed by the Taiwan Teddy Bear Show at the end of November. We are releasing some great new kits at the Quilt show (Sylvester, Fluffy, Foxy and Ratty) along with our usual favourites. Please come along and have a look or go to the Craft section of the web site. We would love to know what you think of them! Then we will be busy finishing our latest Artist bears for Taiwan. Heather is a judge at this show (as well as a guest speaker!) and we are looking forward to returning.

We had a fantastic time at Aprils German show in Műnster and Heather enjoyed judging at the GOLDEN GEORGE competition and we look forward to returning again next year. We had a great time at Julys Tokyo show and 2016 was even busier with Saturday packed with enthusiastic collectors. We were delighted to have been awarded with 'Best Stand' at the show which made us feel very happy considering there were over 250 exhibitors!  

It has been several years since we took our bears and craft kits for a road trip and it was great to be able to catch up with customers around the country.

We have also been very busy designing new bears and friends for Charlie Bears in England. It is wonderful to see so many of our designs in their catalogue and getting such a great response from collectors around the world.

If you are in Auckland you are always welcome to pop in to see us in our studio where we have a small showroom. Just give us a call first to make sure we are here and not away travelling with the bears. We live in central Auckland so are easy to get to.

Beary regards,

Heather & Roy
