In 2014 we recorded one show after Dan was recovering from an illness. We wanted to do something together, about the things we loved the most, and we expected no one to watch. But you did.......and the "Bakery Bears Podcast" was born.

The last two years has been the most challenging with having to deal with Dan's cancer diagnosis, but also the most rewarding with our engagement with all of you! We have taken you "Out & About", we have visited our "Favourite Places to Knit" & you have found out "Whats in YOUR oven". All that whilst we have been seeing what's on and off your needles.

We absolutely adore making our show, for you. We are so thankful to all the people who have told us over the last year that we should podcast full time. So after much thought, we have decided to give it a shot......

But we need you! If you have enjoyed our show and you want to see it continue in its current format, we would be honoured and so thankful, if you became a patron of the "Bakery Bears Podcast".

If half of our regular viewers subscribe to our show at the basic subscription, here on Patreon, it will allow us to keep committing the time we have to the planning, production and delivery of the show. Just click the 'become a patron' option and YOU will help us to keep bringing you the "Bakery Bears Podcast". As a patron you will also receive rewards as a thank you from us for helping us keep 'The Bakery Bears Podcast' on air. You can see all the benefits of becoming a patron in the reward section on the right hand side of this page.

We have created some super cool things for our patrons including:
  • A monthly LIVE Patron Only Show!
  • Exclusive access to our Platinum Collection of knitting patterns, launching on December 24th 2017 with three further patterns coming. One in Spring, Summer and Autumn 2018
  • Regular tutorials from Kay
  • Behind the scenes videos from Dan
  • Access to Bakery Bear Review videos
  • Access to our range of cooking show's featuring Kay with recipes listed in the show notes
  • Access to all our new location photos on the day they happen
  • Access to our Gold exclusive monthly prize draw
  • Access to every our new magazine, 'Knitability', issued every 6 weeks
  • Access to directors cuts of our 'New Adventures of the Bakery Bear' seasons AND 'The Bakery Bears Pudding Club

You will also see some milestones listed on the left of the screen, this is when it gets really exciting. As our patrons increase, it will allow us to do more, like launch new patron only shows, get the ''The Bakery Bears'' on iTunes (Thanks to 'You' we have now achieved milestone one and you can find the podcast on iTunes & Podbean to download) and involve YOU in the production process. If everyone who watches regularly were to sign up, we could even create a whole channel of programs which we hope to do with other podcasters. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for being one of our most loyal supporters! What you have seen so far is the tip of a very big iceberg. If you would like to get access to ALL we produce, click 'Become a Patron' and get ready for a whole lot more 'Bakery Bears' fun.
