A little bit about me

Hi I am Joann, I’m married to John and we have 3 children and 3 dogs.  I’ve be making Memory bears and Keepsakes for 5 years now and what started off as a hobby in a spare room at home is now Memory Bear business. 

When I started I was a full-time serving soldier in the Army and enjoyed sewing as a hobby, but once I retired after 24 years I decided to take my hobby to the next level and turn it into the successful business it is today!

Bespoke Bears has been up and running as a business since April 2021 and I have not stopped!  I moved out of home into an amazing unit within a local converted old building, The BIS here in Hartlepool, NE England.

The job satisfaction I get is overwhelming, and getting to see the faces and feedback from my customers when they receive their special keepsakes is just amazing! I’m so glad I decided to do what I do! 

Thank you for taking time to read about me and how I began this amazing journey where I create ever lasting keepsakes full of special memories to last a life time.
