Hi, I’m Sandi and I created Family Comforts back in 2018 after my Dad passed away.
If it wasn’t for my Dad I would never have started Family Comforts, he was my inspiration and I know he’s looking down on me now and is really proud of what we have achieved.
My favourite part of the Bear making process is the design part, I love finding unique parts of clothing to incorporate into the Bear, so that every Bear is bespoke and individual.
In my spare time I enjoy, eating out (if Andy doesn’t cook!) and listening to music. Every morning, I play ‘Pop Master with Ken Bruce’ whilst cutting out Bears, I hope one day to take part in person!
Andy is my husband and has been a huge supporter of Family Comforts from the start!
He helps me cut out our interfacing when we get busy, but he usually does it whilst watching the rugby.
He loves travelling in our VW Campervan, and cooking (as I don’t!)
Aislinn is my daughter and the voice behind our social media. Aislinn enjoys walking her dog, Oscar, reading and watching films in her spare time
Oscar is Aislinn’s Westie and he comes over to the workshop from time to time. He’s not very good at much, but he tries! He’s always up for a cuddle, or a walk when some fresh air is needed. His favourite things are walkies, bones and cwtchs.
Percy keeps a careful eye over the production of our Family Comforts and is quick to point out any errors, all it takes is one look! His favourite things are Dreamies treats, sleeping and scaring Oscar.
