About Me

Handcrafted Memory Bears launched in September 2011 and is owned and run by me, Karen Salt.




A few words from me...

Ever since I was a child I have watched my Mum and my Nans creating beautiful handmade items. Whether it was a handmade dress, a beautiful embroidered cushion, a knitted cardigan or - and this is my most memorable - my daughter's beautiful silk christening gown; I have witnessed hours of love and dedication going into each handcrafted item and I truly appreciate the value of each of those items.

Thankfully, this love of needlecraft has passed on to me ...stitching is my heritage. It has run down the generations of our family and I feel that now is my time to follow in the tradition. Over the years I have created bridesmaid dresses, evening dresses, curtains, soft furnishings, cross-stitched pictures and countless other handmade items.

All of these creations have always been just for the love of creating but with my twin boys starting school I wanted a change in career direction and so, inspired by another business owner & parent, I decided to turn my passion for stitching into a business and so 'Karen Salt - Handcrafted Memory Bears' was born.

I do hope you enjoy browsing my website as much as I have enjoyed creating it and if you have any comments or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Feel free to e-mail me at karen@handcraftedmemorybears.co.uk.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Love Karen
