An Artist Bear Website

About Me

 My name is Marilyn Wagner. I live in Middletown, Ohio with my Husband Doug. We live with a Choxie named Bailey, a crazy little dog named Mandi, Corgi named Winston and 2 cats Caylee & Smokey.

I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember. I’ve Cross stitched, tried Crocheting, latch hook rugs, always looking for that special something. Then finally about 14 years ago I decided to try my hand at Quilting. Well I was addicted. I liked it so much that I started a long arm Quilting business out of my home.

Then 10 years ago I fell into Bear making which I love. Then stated designing my own patterns. I just love to watch my little bears almost come to life. I have decided to combine my two loves and start my business Quilts-N-Critters. Honestly I don’t have time now for quilting. Making the Teddy Bears keep me pretty busy.

I currently make bears, bunnies and I’ve even made a cat, but plan to make other critters, I would like to make Dogs. I used to be a dog groomer and feel that it is a great skill when scissor sculpting.

Thanks for checking out my Web site  and I hope you enjoy your Bears as much as I enjoyed making them.
