Hoblins Bears are made by Linda Willetts in Lancashire. Linda has been making bears since 1998 and creates, as she says, "Small dressed bears with character". Linda loves her "job", as she calls it, and also enjoys selling shoes and handbags as well as acting as treasurer to her local Women's Institute.
Linda's secret dream, now shared with millions of people, is to live in the county of Kent near to the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway. She doesn't say why, perhaps Linda is also a secret railway buff!
