This week's message:

I plan to reopen on the morning of August 4, rather than the evening of Aug. 3 as I had previously announced (I think this will make it easier for people to get orders in, and will allow me to keep a better eye on the numbers). I will be requesting that orders be placed only by those who do not already have a sling they can use, so that people without a sling have a chance to get an order in. Because I'd like to take a break with my kids before school starts again, I will be capping orders at no more than 250 slings -- I have had almost no time to just be with and enjoy my children this summer, and they need me, too.

I will be posting regular updates about the precise time I will reopen the store on my Facebook page. If you "like" my page on Facebook you can get them easily, and if you select "get notifications", Facebook will tell you when I post, which is likely the best way to get reminders. Otherwise, you can always refresh the home page here and check the Facebook feed in the lower right to see what I've posted.

While the store is closed, the "add to cart" button has been removed to keep new orders from being placed. (Clicking "next" will just take you to the next product, not the next step in ordering.)


If you're looking at a product and can't see any swatches, click on the color selector for that product, pull down until you see the name of the color you're interested in, and then let go of the mouse button. The photo at left will change to reflect the chosen color. If this doesn't work on your browser, please send me an email and let me know.

Ribbon trim

Ribbon trim is a great, low-key accent for a casual sling -- perfect for tencel, linen and blends, or the plain organic slings. The ribbon is sewn across the sling, about 1" from the bottom hem, and can also be used to accent a pocket. If you select "pocket trim" below, the price includes the pocket and the trim -- no need to order the pocket separately -- and the ribbon along the hem as well. I can also use ribbon that you send; plan on ordering a yard to do the hem trim, or 40" if you also want trim on a pocket.

The fraction next to the ribbon colorway is the width of the ribbon (i.e. 7/8" or 1 1/2"). The wider ribbons are quite striking, while the narrower ones are a little more subdued.

Please note: Adding this item to your cart means I will sew ribbon (or ribbon and pocket) to the tail of your sling, which must be purchased separately. It does not reflect the cost of a complete sling; $8 wouldn't even cover the cost of materials for a sling, let alone the time I put into it. The photo shown at left is just an example of how a finished sling looks with ribbon trim.
