From Antique Dolls to Teddy Bears: How One Love Led to Another

Cindy McGuire’s business, China Cupboard Bears, grew from her love of antique dolls and costuming and was a natural extension of her background in fashion design. Cindy started to make stuffed dolls and teddy bears in the late 1980's when her doll collection outgrew her house. She started doing doll shows to weed out her collection and find new things. When she ran out of antique dolls to re-sell, she started to make stuffed dolls and teddy bears. The bears started to sell and a business was born! After over 20 years in in business, she continues to delight in offering the unexpected and in inspiring smiles through the sweet loveable faces, wonderful fabrics and trim, and interesting antiques or vintage additions that adorn her creations! In this lecture, Cindy will share the story of her journey from antique doll lover to teddy bear designer! To learn more about Cindy, visit her website at
