Today we’d like to introduce you to Julie Roberts.
Julie, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
In 2007, my husband and I both lost our Mothers exactly 30 days apart. At the time, someone we met, mentioned something about making Memory Bears out of their clothing.
At that time, I was sewing home decor for an interior designer so I took up the challenge and made 11 memory bears for my husband and his siblings and 4 memory bears for my Dad and my brothers.
The bears were such a big hit in our families and gave comfort to them for the great loss in our lives, that I decided to start a website and make and sell custom Memory Bears.
Within the first year, I quit my day job and now I have been making and selling Memory Bears as my full time job for close to 10 years now.
Not only do I enjoy designing and making each bear, I enjoy knowing what these Memory Bears mean to the people who order them.
We also take orders for memory bears relating to people’s special moments such as wedding dresses, military uniforms and other memories that people want to preserve.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has worked out well, people search for me online and our business has grown starting from the first year. Because I have made hundreds of these bears, I have learned to work with many types of fabrics and our quality reflects that.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Our business is a custom order business. People send treasured clothing of a loved one or event and we make it into a personalized Memory Bear. We add pictures and or embroidered names and dates on our bears on request. We do quality bears in a bear style that has been very popular to people searching these bears online.
We are told by clients that they chose our website to order based on the pictures we show and the quality and style of the bears. We have many return clients and many orders from people who have seen our bears in friends and families’ homes. One of our recent orders is a client that has now ordered a total of 50 bears from us.
