It has been a while....

I am pretty sure it is safe to say my hiatus is officially over.  I know it has been a while, due to my high risk pregnancy then a VERY needy baby that hated to be worn!  (Someone up there has a funny sense of humor, right?)

We are finally in a semi-decent mode where I can get some sewing done in between all the running of kids everywhere they need to go.

I am still only taking orders from outside of the US, but would be willing to do applique work for any of my customers.  My turn around is SLOW, as it is just me working on this and it is in between family life responsibilities.  If you have a project you think I might find interesting, feel free to email me.

I thought you all might like this picture of what it is like when I am trying to make a carrier. 

This is baby boy desperately clinging to my leg, screaming and crying at the top of his lungs because I am not holding him.  He did this the entire time I was trying to put snaps on this carrier.  "Why not just wear him?" you ask.    Well, because he hates back carriers (only seems to like hip and front carries) and even then you have to be standing and constantly moving for him to be semi-appeased.  So a back carry while I try to sew?  No Way Jose.  Unless I want previously mentioned screeching right in my ear.  Good think he is cute.  ;) 

Happy Babywearing!

No Longer Selling in the US

Due to current government testing regulations, I will not longer be selling carriers within the US. I am a VERY small business, and cannot afford the 3rd party testing. To be able to afford it, I would have to expand Wrapstar into a bigger company. That is not something I am wanting to do. I enjoy creating every carrier as a one of a kind masterpiece...and making it from start to finish. I enjoy being able to do this during my down time with the kids, and still be able to be a Stay at Home Mom. To produce enough carriers to envelope the cost of the testing is just something I cannot do at my production level.

I am so sorry to all of my loyal fans.

BUT...I have some ideas in the keep your eyes out for some amazing Wrapstar appliques on some of your other favorite carriers!

If you are outside of the US, and interested in purchasing a Custom Wrapstar, feel free to email me at: to see about my availability.

Wrapstar is expanding!

Our family that is! We are in the final stretch of pregnancy with our third child! We are so excited that soon we will be meeting our son.

Due to this pregnancy, my husband changing jobs, and my oldest daughter's new school, I have been SO busy. Meaning....I haven't been getting a lot of sewing done.

I am finishing up an order of wrap conversion for the WONDERFUL online store, Zerbert's. I am also finishing up a few Mei Tais made with wrap panels for the WONDERFUL online store BeBe Wearing Mama's. I will notify everyone once those orders go out. They will make a wonderful Christmas gift to all my fans that have been patiently waiting for a Wrapstar to call their very own.

After this order, I will be going on maternity leave. I will keep updating the Facebook fan page, as well as answering emails. In what capacity I will come back after the New Year is still uncertain. I will need to look more into the ASTM standards and decide if I will be able to keep legally making carriers at the level I am doing. I hope that I will be able to keep making carriers......but I cannot make any promises. I will let you all know what I decide as soon as I know.

I hope this holiday season brings you all joy and lots of memorable babywearing moments!

Changes and new info

Luckily there has been a stay of enforcement for lead testing, so that is good.

I will hope to be going for the next year making babycarriers until other regulations become mandatory. I am working on new labels as well.

I am going to try to move into only doing wrap conversions, so if you are wanting a Mei Tai with canvas straps, start buying up what comes up in the next few months, b/c that will be the last of it.

I will be doing smaller waitlists as well. In preparation for Wrapstar to be closing its doors to US customers, I have taken on an extra job. That means, I wont have as much time to sew. SO, my new waitlist will be done in groups of 3. I will take three spots at a time. I hate that my current waitlist has taken SO long to finish because of a lot of unexpected personal conflicts (moving, holidays and a TON of snow days!).

With only taking 3 at a time, the hope is that those clients will not have to wait as long for their carriers.

I will also be doing waitlist JUST for legacy wrap quilts. So keep your eyes open for those. I will be taking those in groups of 3 as well.

To my loyal customers outside of the US, a lot of these new regulations will not affect you. And I hope to be making carriers for my foreign supporters for many years to come.

Are you done babywearing, but can't bring yourself to sell your favorite wraps? Have a lot of wonderful memories of wearing your baby in a certain wrap?

Have it turned into a quilt! You will be able to keep your favorite wrap, guilt free, and have a beautiful keepsake to last a lifetime!
Use your WS custom slot for a quilt, instead of a carrier if you choose! Prices vary depending on size and design. Contact me for a quote!

Thank you all..

We moved. It was horrible. I never want to move again. I will die in this house, then they can seal it up like my tomb. I never want to move again.

We love our new house, and we are getting settled in. But my time getting sewing done took a nose dive. I was so busy with packing, then moving, then unpacking.....I feel like I am finally getting back into the swing of things.

I know how frustrating this must have been for those of you on my custom list, having to wait longer. I am so apologetic about that, and appreciate your understanding.

I am finally rocking and rolling again, so I should be finishing up the custom list within in the next 2-3 wks.

Thank you again, to all my wonderful fans............
