We are currently undergoing a complete site upgrade. Thank you for being patient and please come back soon.
We expect to be back by 16 October 2011.
Welcome to the Tag Along Teddies web site, where the bears just want to ‘tag along’ home with you!! When my long-suffering, over-worked, far-too-clever-for-his-own-good husband, Scott, was designing the Tag Along Teddies site, he got all sorts of instructions from me, the main one being that a visit to the Tag Along Teddies site had to be like a visit to a friend’s place for a cuppa and a chat, and though I may be a little biased, I think he’s done a brilliant job doing that! So, grab a cuppa, get comfy and take a look behind the scenes of the Tag Along Teddies family, find out more about the Chief Arctophile (lover of bears!) and bear designer – that’s me – and browse through the growing list of available patterns.
For those of you who have visited before - Welcome Back! For new browsers – enjoy the first of what we hope will be many visits to the Tag Along Teddies hug!
Those of you who HAVE visited us before will see we’ve been busy adding to the site again – Scott dreads me walking into the room and saying, “I’ve been thinking…” He insists this phrase is inevitably followed by more work for him – poor Baby!! (Tee! Hee! Hee!)
The newsletter, “Hello From The Hug” has proven popular, with the signup list growing steadily. Not only do newsletter subscribers receive regular email updates from the Tag Along Teddies hug, they are the first to hear when we launch a new teddy bear, stitchery or doll pattern, as well as being the first to take advantage of specials and competitions. You can view our newsletter archives by clicking the Newsletter button then select archives, or sign up to receive the newsletter regularly. I will be offering great competitions and prizes to our newsletter recipients in the future, so it pays to sign up - not only will you know what's happening in the Tag Along Teddies Hug, you may win a great prize!
DOWNLOADABLE PATTERNS ARE NOW AVAILABLE!! It's very exciting! Scott has worked his technological magic and a number of bear patterns are now available in downloadable format. Just follow the prompts and your bear pattern will wing it's way to your computer faster than you can say "Tag Along Teddies". Now, if creative inspiration strikes at midnight , you can download a Tag Along Teddies bear pattern and hit the sewing machine without having to wait for the postie to rise and shine! At this stage, only bear patterns are downloadable, but others will soon follow, so watch this space!
Previous visitors will notice some new patterns popping up on the site, too. I've been hard at work over a hot drawing board coming up with new stitchery designs and fun bear-related projects, so I hope you enjoy them. To find out what I'm working on now and what's in the design pipeline, check out "Drawing Board", an update of works-in-progress.
You’re welcome to drop me a line any time to tell me what you thought of the patterns or site, ask questions, give suggestions for future pattern ideas or just say G’day! I would LOVE to get your feedback on what we're offering and on any projects you would like to see in the future.
I hope you enjoy exploring Tag Along Teddies and ‘tag along’ back frequently!!
