This week's message:

I'm doing a Center for Babywearing Studies workshop the week of April 20-24, and my kids' school vacation is the week after that, and I won't have time to sew during either of those weeks. My next all-inclusive opening will be Monday, May 4, at 2pm Eastern time.
(NB: Slings labeled in-stock are still sewn to order -- it's the fabric that I have in stock, not finished slings, and slings are not sewn until orders are placed.)

I always post 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 the best way to get reminders. Otherwise, you can always refresh the home page here and check the Facebook feed below 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.

 

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.

Fun tail accents

Add a little pizazz to your sling with a tail accent! It will be sewn on as shown at right -- I used to do them all the way to the bottom of the tail (as is shown on the slings in the very old gallery), but feel that leaving a border of the sling fabric below the accent is a nicer look. If you would prefer a different placement, please let me know ahead of time. I can also add an open-top pocket within the accent at no extra charge; there is no closure, and the pocket will be around 8" wide by 10" deep.

You will need to select a main fabric from the shopping menu first, then select an accent fabric from those listed below. If you would like to add a print you've found yourself, use the "sent by customer" option. In general, the linen, rayon, and twill fabrics work best with a cotton accent; for silk, I recommend the fancier fabrics.

Remember, you also need to pick out a base fabric! The materials alone in a regular sling cost more than $12, not to mention my sewing time. This $12 cost is for the accent fabric and extra sewing only, not for a complete sling.

Also keep in mind that this does not add any length to the sling. If you select an accent, the sling will still be sewn to the length you've specified.

If you're looking at a contrast stripe on a French twill or linen sling, please let me know what color you want in the "special instructions" box at checkout. I could choose for you, but my taste is much more sedate than most and I probably won't pick the right one.
