Who am I ?

My name is Marrie van Vliet-Moret, happily married for years to Willem.  I have a wonderful daughter, son in law, 3 grand daughters. 

I have lived my whole life in Capelle aan den IJssel, on the outskirts of Rotterdam, in the Netherlands.

The last couple of years I have been making Teddy Bears, lots of Teddy Bears! Sizes ranging from 5 to 50 centimeter's.  Now I know what an addiction is, you wake up thinking about Teddy Bears and finally fall asleep thinking of Teddy Bears.

Even when I go on vacation, I pack my Teddy Bear suitcase with all my Teddy Bear stuff.  I just can't help it. I'll end up making a Teddy Bear just outside our camper.

What do I like the most? To meet people at trade show's that are also infected with the Teddy Bear virus.

Seeing that I would like to share my love for Teddy Bears, I have  organized several Teddy Bear courses. Hopefully with these courses I will be able to introduce you to this fantastic hobby (please see courses for further information).

I hope you enjoy looking around at www.vanvlietbears.com
