My name is Stine Birkeland and I live in Denmark in a small village with my husband and two Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Our house was earlier a country grocery store so I have a large work room with windows to the street running by.

I started making bears in year 2000. My first bears were taken from a book, however, very soon I found that people wanted to buy the bears and I started to make my own patterns. I have always been creative and made all kinds of stuff. But I must admit that the bears take up so much of my time and thoughts that there is little time left over for hobbies like patch work, scrap booking, etc.
