A meeting of Babywearing Store Owners

Last night Darien of Zolowear came into town so we all got together for dinner. Babywearing is one of the only industries , I think, where competitors often get together as friends. We are all moms, after all. It was a lovely dinner.

From left: Zoe (the inspiration for Zolowear), Darian (owner of Zolowear), her son Clark, Karen (of Eesti Slings) with Gracie, Carole of Sakura Bloom with Riley, Angela and Satori of, and finally Elijah and I.

Grace, Satori, and Elijah happily coloring.

Under the table and dreaming...

Fabric, beautiful fabric...

Yes, my very favorite part of the job is the fabric. Fabric can be so incredibly beautiful. The colors, the art, the way it falls and moves. Yeah, I am a sucker for gorgeous baby sling fabric. This is the Eyes of the World sling fabric, our very best seller (its organic too!).

New Infant Pillows/Diapers and Wipees cases!

Introducing Karma Baby Sling's newest product! I just love these little totes. Made from a variety of our fabulous fabrics, these little purses hold 4-5 diapers plus a soft wipes case (wipes included). Stick it in the pouch under your baby's head as an infant pillow and go or slip it around your wrist to use as a tote! What a great invention:)

Coming out soon, keep a lookout for them!

Yea! Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine!

Check out Karma Baby Slings in this month's (June, 2007) issue of Pregnancy and Newborn. They requested a water sling from us a couple months ago, and they actually used it. We are on page 112, the "Good mom gear" page.

Sew Mama Sew Interview

This great sewing blog just featured me on their site. I like the interview, I feel like the writer really understood everything. Anyways, read it for yourself!

Interview - Stacey, Karma Baby

June 4th, 2007

From Kristin: As part of our continuing series of interviews with sewing women who inspire us, Beth has written this splendid profile of Stacey of Karma Baby. I first “met” Stacey on the Mothering discussion boards. Not only did she seem to have a great thing going with her baby carrier company, but she was incredibly helpful to other moms starting out in small business. I hope you enjoy her story.

Stacey started Karma Baby in 2005 right after her son Elijah was born. Elijah recently turned two and Karma Baby slings are now sold worldwide...
