About 'EmBears

Hi, I am Ellen MacMaster. I personally create each and every stuffed critter, one at a time, each with it's own unique expression and "Person"ality. My preoccupation with stuffed animals started as a child and continues still. I made my first bear as a church project in 1996. If you possess my passion for stuffed critters, then you will enjoy my bears.

My bears come to "life" here in Northern New York (St. Lawrence County) where I live along the shore of the Raquette River. My husband, David, and I enjoy the quiet expanses of the Adirondack Mountains at our doorstep. Our two grown children have left the "den", and their absent space is now filled with bears, lambs, penguins, fur and stuffing! Our bedroom is home for over 60 pairs of eyes - stacked in corners, sitting on dressers, hanging from mirrors and dangling precariously from my very own Tree of Stuffed Critters.

Everyone needs a stuffed critter, and my goal is to put a smile in everyone's heart through my art of creating huggable, fuzzy bundles of love - the critters I call 'EmBears.
