Hugs Unlimited was formed over 30 years ago by teddy bear artist Dawn James. Dawn is an award-winning creator of traditional artist teddy bears, some of which can be seen on the Gallery page. Later, Dawn began designing and making a collection of embroidered bags and purses. More recently, her husband, Chris Elliott, joined her, making fairy houses, bags, cushions, Christmas decorations and other items. Together they are currently developing a range of machine embroidery designs.






On the right are some of the awards Dawn has won for her bears.
