Karen and Kathy, identical twin sisters, have been sewing and crafting for years. They decided to start a company after their first project was sewing napkin/silverware holders. The goal was to create a table decoration that would be fun, colorful and unique for any occasion but not take up a lot of space to store.
That project grew into creating a line of products to offer that they sell at craft shows or by contacting them directly.
Memory Bears began when a friend asked for ideas to make a keepsake from her late father's flannel shirts. After some thought and searching the Memory Bear was suggested and has taken off from there and has been their best selling item ever since. (500 + bears made so far.)
