    Hello there!!
    This is an email I have been meaning to send for ages, and I apologise that it has taken until now to write it!!

    I ordered 3 of your Beautiful keepsake bears (at very short notice for Christmas, it has to be said), for each of my daughters.
    We had had a terrible time as we had recently lost my brother , (the Girls Uncle, of whom they were particularly close), and we were all dreading Christmas without him. It has to be said that the bears helped us all to get through Christmas as we felt we had got a little bit of him with us, (and we still have!!)

    The workmanship and attention to detail could not have been any better and the keepsake bears shall sit proudly as constant keepsakes and reminders, so from all of us, THANK YOU!

    I hope you realise what a special gift this is to have…….

    Thank you so much for the two lovely bears that you made from my beloved husbands favourite shirts. The workmanship is excellent. My grandson was delighted with his bear and I believe he will get a lot of pleasure and comfort from it.

    Thank you all once again and very best regards.

    I received my three memory bears today. One for my partner made from a cardigan belonging to his Mam it is beautiful I don’t think I can wait for his birthday next month. The other two for me and my brother made from our Dad’s two shirts and chinos. They are amazing. I was so happy when I saw them I cried because I now have something that can take pride of place rather than tucked away.
    Thank you so much, words cannot tell you how happy I am that you have made something out of nothing really for me to treasure and remember my beloved Dad.
    Many thanks again. Marie xx

    Dear Tiller & Co team,

    We received our bears this morning and oh, my goodness, how gorgeous they are, we are so thrilled. My daughter cried when she saw hers. They are truly professional in every way, presented so beautifully and the service was extremely quick – we cannot thank you enough.

    I lost my husband in October. Although having lived in Bedfordshire for over fifty years, I was born and bred in Cornwall and Pete and I were married in Charlestown so I’m pleased to think there’s a Cornish connection with our bears.

    I’ve already sent photos and recommendations to our friends so I think you might get an influx of orders from Bedfordshire!

    Thank you once again, these are the best memory bears we found on the internet and we know we chose the very best.

    With best wishes for our ‘beary’ special keepsakes,
    Sylvia and Sally Hing

    Don’t hesitate to order – not only are they well made but they are also packaged beautifully.

    I honestly couldn’t be happier with my purchases! I had called a different company initially about making bears for my children (my father passed away recently and he was living with us so they have been really upset) and the lady I spoke to was rude and said they couldn’t make me anything until April 2021. My experience with Tiller&Co was so different. They were kind and helpful from the start. The bears and pillows they made for me absolutely exceeded my expectations. They are perfect. I will be recommending them to my friends!!
